Full story: TwinCities.com
Timberwolves forward Ryan Gomes will have to adjust to coming off the bench for a while - at least until coach Kurt Rambis has a notion to make a lineup change. Full Story

Jerry Sloan, coach of the Utah Jazz, made some very positive comments
about the Timberwolves style of play. That being said, there needs to be
more than coaching. They have two great guys up front, but they need a
back-court duo who can keep the defenders from collapsing on the
workhorses in the middle. Love and Jefferson have been awesome, but the
back-court is inconsistent and too small. Jonny Flynn is working hard, but
he is over-matched. The other guy...uh, who is the other guy. Seems like
a rotating situation there. They need both a PG and an outside shooter
that must be defended. Then you'll really see Love and Jefferson dom-
inate offensively. the guys they have for guard are no better than
journeymen. Defensively? Well, even if they were tenacious, they'd still
lack size. Too bad the recent trade could not be consummated. Watch
the turnovers; it's your worst mistake in the 3rd quarter. If you can keep
the ball, you can hang tough.

Oh, and they need a weak-side forward who can
drill from the corner base line. They don't have
that, either.
