United we run...

The newest motto for the Timberwolves team has finally taken its toll.

While the Wolves have lost game after game, I have to admit that they are fun to watch when they are running.

When Jonny Flynn and Corey Brewer are on the fast break, it's almost guaranteed buckets, as no one can keep up with them.

I have heard time and time again that defense wins games...If the Wolves played great defense, it would create many offensive opportunities to get out on the fast break.

Brewer has been throwing down dunks with great velocity and speed with Flynn feeding him the ball.

One thing that I've noticed in these games, is that the more that the Timberwolves lose, the hungrier they get. The more a wolf starves, the more a wolf hunts.

Al Jefferson, Ryan Hollins, Brewer, and Flynn are all emotional leaders on the Timberwolves. Many times we've seen them screaming into the crowd or at each other after a great play.

It really gives a true fan something to look forward to, despite losing 14 straight.

Head coach Kurt Rambis has repetedly stated that the Wolves have a lack of effort, and he is right. When the Wolves play with 100 percent effort, they can challenge any team in the NBA. If the Wolves played 100 percent for four quarters, they would be a 40-60 squad easily without Kevin Love.

I look for the Timberwolves to win another game in the next two games, and continue to win around 38 percent of the games from there, until Kevin Love gets back.
