Tuesday's Wolves Links: Nemanja Bjelica finally feels good

Wolves throttled by 24 points vs. Houston at Target Center: Wolves interim coach Sam Mitchell was in the locker room for a long, long time after Monday’s game at Target Center. He wasn’t happy with what he’d seen. He didn’t hesitate to let the players know: Even a team with relatively little to play for should play better than this. -- Star Tribune

Bjelica is making the most of healthy finish: It doesn’t exactly make up for a difficult rookie season, but it helps. Nemanja Bjelica is healthy again, he’s getting significant minutes again. And, frankly, the game is fun for him again. “I finally feel good,” Bjelica said. “That’s the most important thing. I’m 100 percent healthy." The reigning EuroLeague MVP, Bjelica came to America as a 27-year old rookie. -- Star Tribune

Timberwolves' winning streak ends with a thud to Rockets: Well, at least the Timberwolves didn’t get booed Monday night. Earlier this week, the Wild were jeered off the ice for backing into the playoffs, and Monday afternoon the Twins received derision in their direction after falling to 0-7 this season with a home-opening loss. --
