Davis doesn't play the 4th. Why play him at all? The NBA has become a little weird. Winning is always good, IMO.

Arguably the best player in the league is now a lame duck? Meanwhile, Jrue Holiday works like a dog every night, for a team that doesn't care. I have a ton of respect for Holiday. I have even more respect for Westbrook. He's not looking to join a super team.

Westbrook is going to have another triple-double season. Yawn. That makes three. Something is seriously wrong with his shot (it's not mostly mechanical, but I have noticed a slight change in how he is moving too far forward on his jump shot) but he has a fall back. He leads the league in assists by a crazy margin, and he's second in the league in steals.

Last 8 games, 13.3 Rebounds per game. 14.5 assists per game. Who does that? Who has ever done that?

Westbrook is collecting 11.1 Rebounds per game. Gibson and Wiggins combined are averaging 11.3 rebounds per game.

Westbrook is 6'3".

Looks like DL quit the Wolves at the same time MLB quit the DL.

If the season ended today we would have about the 10th pick

At the rate we are struggling that may improve

But when you do, you drink Dos Equis.

Wiggins was 3 assists of a triple/double?
Towns was the only other one that did much of anything.
Pathetic team that has shown no improvement since the coaching change. Looking like we will have a top 10 draft pick.

We could win the lottery and get Zion.

A top 10 pick would be the best option for this team going forward. Its easy to blame the coach, but there is no evidence that someone else could get significant more out of this pathetic group of players.

With Derrick Rose returning tonight and Andrew Wiggins possibly sitting out with an illness, there is a chance that Rose, Luol Deng and Taj Gibson all start for the Wolves.

The last time Rose, Deng and Gibson started together was March 15th, 2011.

Be careful what you wish for.

Rose and Deng take charge late in the half.

Had the rough start with the quick fouls, but he's played very well since.

If we ever could get a head coach that emphasizes ball movement and unselfish play...

Clippers have been down by 20 at some point in every game on this road trip, but they've come back from 25, 20, and 28.....Not counting on a fourth in six games, though.

Love what they've done, but especially those two. They have about $60 million in cap space this summer without further moves, plus two more first-rounders.

Fun rest of the season and an interesting off-season coming up.

Saric just plays the game right.

He passed up two easy shots to burn a ton of clock.

Jon Eyechart (Athletic) on KFAN today said Saric start might be more than a one night thing. He could start the rest of the season. He's a player the Wolves really need to do a thorough evaluation on to see if and how he fits in.

Why hasn't he been starting? He was the difference tonight, in my estimation.

Because Ryan looks like he's 15, but he has the soul of a 60 year-old coach.

BTW, good on the Wolves for not collapsing tonight---seriously. It's hard to maintain when your opponent comes back like that, and they just kept scoring.

Saric is up to 39% from 3 on the season.

43% since the start of the year (27/63).
