The Timberwolves lost to Seattle despite the absence of Sonics rookie forward Kevin Durant, who sat out the final three quarters because of a sprained left index finger.
The Wolves never mounted much of a challenge in the second half and suffered a 109-90 setback at KeyArena.
Wolves record: 4-25
Even Durant's absence couldn't keep the Wolves from another night of exasperation and resignation expressed by their outraised arms, glazed stares and even a technical foul given to mild-mannered assistant coach Jerry Sichting.
"We had no purpose, no life," Wittman said about the final three quarters. "Maybe we have to shake things up. We cannot just accept a defeat like that."
