It may seem to be amazing, but perhaps a peculiar thing that a one, single action from a head coach would literally change the outcome of a team’s performance.
Minnesota Timberwolves standout Anthony Edwards addressed the media after their battle against the Sacramento Kings, claiming that their mentor, Chris Flinch, was yelling during the halftime break.
As provided by reporter Dane Moore, Edwards said this ‘out of character’ action by Flinch convinced the pack to turn things around and grab the game with sheer effort.
“You got Finchy in there yelling. That’s not him. If he’s doing that, we’re like ‘alright, we gotta tighten up’. Man, we can’t have Finchy in here actin out of character.”
The Kings were up by four after the first two periods, 48-44, but Edwards and Karl Anthony-Towns propelled the T-Wolves with a combined 48 markers and 11 boards for a 107-97 home win.
After starting the 75th season with high hopes and morale, Minnesota currently has a 5-9 record, occupying the 12th spot in the tight Western Conference. They will continue to defend the Target Center turf and climb the standings against the arriving San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.
