    Anthony Edwards leads Minnesota Timberwolves' balanced attack in win over Pelicans

    Anthony Edwards leads Minnesota Timberwolves' balanced attack in win over Pelicans

    Anthony Edwards scored 37 points as he led the Minnesota Timberwolves' balanced attack in a win over the New Orleans Pelicans, spoiling Brandon Ingram's return from injury. The Wolves trailed at halftime and saw a double-digit lead vanish in the fourth quarter, but the Wolves managed to pull out the win. Ben Beecken (@bbeecken) breaks down the Wolves' impressive second-half performance on both ends of the floor, as well as individual studs and duds.

    Anthony Edwards needs to be more consistent defensively for the Timberwolves + Naz Reid's trade market

    Anthony Edwards needs to be more consistent defensively for the Timberwolves + Naz Reid's trade market

    If Anthony Edwards wants to be taken more seriously as a candidate for the All-Star Game -- and someday, for All-NBA -- he needs to bring more consistency on defense for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Ben Beecken (@bbeecken) talks about Edwards' impossibly high defensive ceiling, and why it's so maddening that he can turn in duds like Monday's loss to the Houston Rockets. Plus, a look at the trade rumors surrounding Naz Reid and a pair of players the Wolves reportedly could have interest in. Lastly, a preview of Wolves-Pelicans.

Hate shows with Marney

Listen to all the regular pods, but skip the post-game ones due to Marney. Please go solo or replace her with someone better like Lea B. or Brunson.

Enjoy Locked on Wolves podcast

Ben does a great job with the Wolves podcast. He does his research, he comes prepared, and he’s very objective. I’ve listened to his podcast for a couple years throughout covid and appreciate his hard work putting out a lot of good podcasts; almost every day there is a new one. I’m glad the wolves have turned it around and Ben gets to enjoy reporting on a good team since he has paid his dues.

Audio issues

For the second time in a row, Marney’s audio isn’t working on the post game show. The audio issues are so irritating, it makes those episodes impossible to get through. Why continue to upload them with issues?
