A long 2 is a win for the defense. It's good to see Saunders at least emphasizing this point, but we'll see how effective he is at getting the message through. that will be the real test.

When you are playing for a coach you truly like as oppose to one you don't and he has no fixed lineup, change is easier. The faster the point guard gets the ball up court, the more time there is to find an open 3.

As opposed to being barked at for 48 minutes straight on court, and not spoken to off court. This must be a real breath of fresh air for these guys.

I do. And if ever there was one, tonight is it.

If the Wolves could get a win, not only would it be a win on the road against a good team, those are always nice, but it would also put a final coda on Tom Thibodeau era. It would exorcise the demons of Jimmy Butler. It would be a cathartic purging of the past and a vision of a better future.

Now they just have to go out and win it. That will be tough. Love or hate Jimmy Butler, he will be sky high for this one, and he can still be a beast when he wants to be. My hope is that he does it to the detriment of the other talented teammates around him.

It's been over 5 years since we won in Philly.

The white Prince uniforms. I'm feeling better now. They can't lose.

There are several issues that have been talked about with Rose but one positive is that he really does seem to be a good locker room guy.

He was 3rd on their team in 3 point shooting last year at 39%.

And he's shooting a very respectable 37% since the trade...

I bet Tyus wants to put up some good numbers against his old Duke teammate JJ Redick.

What's the Wolves all-time record for most points allowed in the 1st half?

Worst defensive half of the year.

Check that. Worst in franchise history.

We gave up 83 pts at the half? Ouch.

I guess this one’s not worth watching

Ouch.

I think Embiid was out the last time you played the 76ers, so I was curious about this one.

He played in both games against us last year. Averaged 23.5 and 9.

KAT averaged 17.0 and 13.5.

This one is embarrassing.

I can count the contested shots Philly took on one hand.
