Practice Report | Wolves Search For Consistency Before Four-Game Road Trip

By now you’ve probably heard that the Wolves’ Sunday afternoon loss to the Grizzlies was rather forgettable.

According to Wolves point guard Shabazz Napier, complacency and inadequate respect for the shorthanded Grizzlies were both reasons for the Wolves’ fifth-straight home loss and fourth loss to a below .500 team.

“I think yesterday we just didn’t come to play,” Napier said at Monday’s practice. “We didn’t show no respect to the other team, and that’s what happens.”

How do the Wolves plan to mitigate lackadaisical performances?

“You have to try to generate the energy from within,” Saunders said.
