Minnesota Timberwolves superstars Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins addressed the team’s poor performance this season.
After being 10-8 in the first 18 games, the Wolves have won only five times in their next 28 matches and now have a 15-31 record. Meanwhile, Minnesota currently is on a nine-game losing streak.
For their part, Towns and Wiggins believe the squad lacks consistency and aggressiveness, while it has also lost its edge.
“I think there’s some games that we’ve had where, even with me playing, or with me on the sideline, obviously recently, I just didn’t think we competed or were aggressive enough, and I thought we were tonight.
So obviously it’s great to see. We’ve just now got to show consistency. That’s been our biggest problem,” Towns said, via Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.
“I feel like at the start of the year we were such underdogs and we played with more of a chip on our shoulder. And then we got complacent. Some people got hurt. I feel like we kind of lost our edge a little bit,” Wiggins stated.
