Unfortunately, injuries finally caught up to the young, overachieving Wolves. The massive blow was on March 9th when Ricky Rubio tore his ACL. After that game, Minnesota was not the same and were 5-20 in their final 25 games.
Their 21-20 start to the season gives Minnesota fans a lot to hope for in the future, though. This was a fun year and this young team showed flashes of how explosive they can be in the future.
These are the 10 best plays of the shortened 2011-12 season for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
