Chris Finch laments Wolves’ lack of maturity

After three minutes of play, Chris Finch decided to take a time-out. A necessary pick, because the scoreboard was not in favor of the Wolves: 9-0 Houston. “That told me how the rest of the game was going to be.”The Minnesota coach is celebrating bitterly for the Twin Cities.

The return of Rudy Gobert, who was absent for three games and had a good game with 15 points and 16 rebounds, did not have the desired effect. Can we say that the Houston team, left with thirteen consecutive defeats, surprised the “Wolves”?

Not entirely because Anthony Edwards and his gang have struggled to dominate Houston before. First of all, they never seemed worried or really motivated in this episode. Proof by the numbers: 10 turnovers in the third quarter, most of them due to negligence.

“We have the opportunity to beat everyone and lose to someone. It’s been seen all season and it’s a sign of immaturity.”

So you’re very disappointed with the Wolves?

“It’s a bad habit, but it’s a habit. If there was another team, we would be ready to play. We have to win these games, the coach should not train these games too much, he should sit in his place. It is up to us to do the work.” He laments the background for the Star Tribune. “It’s a bad habit” D’Angelo Russell approves. “We had an opportunity to rise in the rating, but we could not take advantage of it. If we faced New Orleans (Minnesota’s next game), we would probably do the job. »

With some seriousness in attack and intensity in defence, Chris Finch’s troops would surely win this game and manage three passes. Damage…

“You are what you repeatedly do” the coach summarizes. “We often had problems with concentration in such matches. This is part of the problem. These are the matches that our direct rivals in the standings tend not to lose. We have the ability to beat anyone and also lose to someone. It’s been seen all season and it’s a sign of maturity. »

The problems of “Wolves” being content with smaller teams are also visible in the floors and balances. Facing the four worst teams, namely Detroit, Charlotte, San Antonio and Houston, Rudy Gobert, Anthony Edwards and company have just 4 wins (including three against the Rockets) in 10 games…
