Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau likes to say the games…

Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau likes to say the games played will tell a team exactly where it is. So what does their 125-101 thumping at Golden State on Wednesday night tell them? “It tells us that we got humbled tonight,” Wolves veteran forward Taj Gibson said. “It’s a learning curve,” Gibson said. “That’s what happens when you’re feeling good: Five-game winning streak, people telling you how good you are. We just got humbled. Back to the drawing board and learn from it. I’m excited for the next game. I know we’re going to bounce back even better.”

Damian Lillard says that teams can no longer face the Sixers without expecting a fight. “I think in the past we took them lightly. They kind of jumped out and played hard and they beat us,” Lillard said following a Tuesday-evening practice at the Sixers training complex in Camden. “This year, you have no choice but to respect what they’ve done and how they’re playing. They’re not doing it like it’s luck, they’re out there hooping.”
Despite the rolled ankle, noticeable discomfort, and around-the-clock treatment, Lillard seems determined to face the Sixers. Lillard, who did not participate in practice, said he is looking forward to the matchup. “I told y’all that yesterday,” Lillard said, referring to previously saying he planned on playing in Philadelphia. “I pretty much got babied last night so it was good…I feel good.”
