Default Wolves passing should be fun to watch

Injuries galore last season forced Wolves coach Rick Adelman to abandon much of that “corner” offense that made him rich, famous and headed to the Basketball Hall of Fame someday. Instead, he was forced to rely too much on the pick-and-roll with the ball mostly in Rubio’s hands.

This season, expect to see more of Adelman’s offense, with Love as well as Rubio used as “facilitator” and Martin, Corey Brewer and eventually Budinger cutting without the ball. In preseason play, the Wolves were second in the NBA in scoring (104 ppg) and, believe it or not, first in fewest turnovers (15 a game).

“The ball movement has been really good,” Adelman said. “We can score points. When we’re playing together as a group, then I think we can be a pretty darn good team offensively.”
