Timberwolves learn the hard way

Losing streak grows

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The young and rebuilding Minnesota

Timberwolves are quickly finding out that learning on the job is a

painful experience.

The Timberwolves have started a new regime under president David

Kahn and coach Kurt Rambis this year. Both have said on many

occasions that this season would be about educating a team that has

10 players who are 25 or younger.

So far, the youth is showing. The Wolves have lost eight games

in a row after winning the season opener against New Jersey. And

things seem to be getting worse: The Wolves have lost the last

three games by a combined 87 points.
