Wolves 77, Rockets 105

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
One change -- from Dwane Casey to Randy Wittman as Timberwolves head coach -- obviously wasn't enough.
A half-dozen changes, at this point, might not do it, given the Wolves' limited trade assets, imbalanced roster, performance issues and suspect character, the last two of which were on full public display in a 105-77 blowout loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday night.

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
After pointing out his disappointment with the point guards, Wittman widened his aim.
"This loss was the whole (darn) team," he said. "We didn't have anybody that came out with any kind of heart or desire, after a day off (Sunday)."

From Britt Robson/City Pages:
Wittman certainly hinted at changes coming. Pick a scenario, any scenario, and it is probably being considered right now. Because the bloom is off even the rosiest of outlooks.

Box Score

"Witt got on our [butts] a little bit at halftime. It didn't take anything to look up at the score and know we were playing like crap," Garnett said. "We have no consistency going into sets. It was one of them nights, man, when it was all messed up. But we've got to get this thing right. If we're really trying to talk about making the playoffs, we have to make a more valid effort and be consistent on the road."
