The Nets closed out their four game road trip in disgusting fashion, losing 136-125 to the Timberwolves. Adam discusses the struggles for James Harden, specifically his inability to shift to another facet of his game. Kessler Edwards early foul trouble highlighted not only the thin depth currently on this roster but also the rookie's incredible value to this team, especially in the absence of Kevin Durant and Joe Harris. Lastly, Adam looks at the Steve Nash decision making following LaMarcus Aldridge picking up his sixth foul. While rookie Day'ron Sharpe has not been without his growing pains, inserting James Johnson to a "small ball" lineup and facing the task of Karl-Anthony Towns certainly seemed to see the Nets fate.

Minnesota Vikings scoops on the latest general manager and head coaching searches with one candidate saying it's been an ‘inclusive process' but are there too many cooks in the kitchen for the interview process?; Timberwolves scoops after meltdown because of poor officiating; More reckless speculation on potential Minnesota Vikings salary casualties for 2022 with the team being significantly over the salary cap; Old Tweets Exposed
Introduction: It was a tale of two nights for the Timberwolves. After a resilient win over the Knicks in which Wolves players -- most notably Karl-Anthony Towns -- gushed about being able to come through in big moments and battle through adversity, the Wolves melted down in the third quarter of Thursday's back-to-back against Atlanta in an 134-122 loss. Anthony Edwards was ejected. Karl-Anthony Towns had a flagrant foul and constantly battled officials. And afterward, D'Angelo Russell talked about the need for Towns to walk the line with his emotions. 12:00: Wild goalie Kaapo Kahkonen joins the show to talk about his recent stretch of strong play in the absence of Cam Talbot. He also talks about his relationship with Talbot, the developmental curve for a young goalie and how he got his start in hockey. 22:00: An update on the Vikings' search for a new coach and GM, plus Rand gives his thoughts on how likely a Kirk Cousins trade is this offseason.
Alex and Gavin go over the New York Knicks' underwhelming effort against the Minnesota Timberwolves, including a bad first half, a mostly brilliant second half, a truly putrid performance by the refs, questionable decisions by Tom Thibodeau, and a resurgent effort from Evan Fournier and the returning Kemba Walker.

Introduction: Host Michael Rand takes a break for several minutes from Vikings talk to dive into the Timberwolves' 128-125 loss to the Pelicans on Tuesday. It ended a four-game winning streak and kept the Wolves from getting over .500 at the midpoint of the season (20-21), and in the aftermath Karl-Anthony Towns talked about how players can't let love from the media get to their heads. Um, what? The narrative around this team is one of improvement, for sure, but has anyone really said they have arrived? Hear audio clips from Towns, Anthony Edwards and Patrick Beverley. 8:00: Star Tribune columnist Chip Scoggins joins the show to dissect what Rand deems the five most important things said about the Vikings in the last few days. Quotes from Eric Kendricks, Brian O'Neill, Mark Wilf, Mike Zimmer and Rick Spielman (the last two being official statements) shed light on individuals and the team going forward. 30:00: Scoggins thinks Kirk Cousins will be traded in the offseason, which is a good reason to remember that a new coach for the Vikings has tended to mean a QB gets drafted right away.
