Coming off of a Thanksgiving break and two won away games, the Timberwolves played a home game against the Memphis Grizzles, a team that had lost their past six games and whose leading powerhouse Ja Morant was absent.
Despite the odds being in their favor, the Wolves finished with a 115-107 loss at the Target Center on Sunday.
KAT, who had 21 points and 12 rebounds, expressed his disappointment in a post-game interview.
“For us, being a playoff team, this is kind of a traumatic loss. We got to get back to the drawing board tomorrow. We came in with a lot of momentum, and we had three days off. We shouldn’t have played with the energy we had.”
Maybe they ate too much stuffing?
