Posted on 29 Oct, 2015, by in NBA

Getting over the loss of Flip Saunders, one of the most important figures in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves, is going to be very difficult. Starting the season with a 112-111 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, as Ricky Rubio plays like someone with something to prove finally, while Kobe Bryant shows he doesn’t change and Lou Williams misses an easy winning shot, is a nice way to at least forget about the sadness.
