A little disappointed that GS was down Curry, Thompson and Green and the Wolves barely squeaked it out.

though there is a >95% probability that any of the Wolves teams i’ve watched in the past would’ve lost that game. it matters not much how you arrive when one only values W v L

kerr is an effective motivator and the warriors were just throttled by the wolves 2 days prior. i’m pleased with the team and still trying to understand what has changed

Leonard Miller through 3 G League games:

35 MPG: 22.7 PPG (57/47/100), 8.7 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.7 SPg, 1.3 BPG, 2.3 TOs, 2.0 PF.

He's averaging Five 3PA/Game (7/15), but only 2.0 FTA/Game (6/6).

Probably a mental letdown figuring the Wolves can kill the Warriors.

Love Gobert saying that before the game he figured Green would look for an early ejection because Curry was out.

He’s an intriguing player. There might be something there.

He has too many skills that transfer.

I’ll be shocked if he’s not at least a steady rotational player.

Canis article is showing Curry as OUT for tonights game. Important for the Wolves to show up and win opportunities like this. I hadn't seen how bad the CP3 dive into Conley was till I saw the replays. How on earth does that turn into a foul on Conley??


Chris Paul has always been a dirty player and the league has always looked the other way,


Not a big fan, but I mostly see him as a whiner flopper rather than dirty. He's no Jeff Teague. And clearly not on Draymond Green's level.
Green has taken things way too far. As father time is catching up to him, he's resorting to just being a dick with diminished skills.

Since I'm here, Haliburton's last three games: 42 Assists, 2 Turnovers. 87 Points. 15-27 from Three. Pacers with the best offense in the league right now and 80% of that is Haliburton.

Speaking of Haliburton:

I love that. Respect and humility.

Edwards earned that respect quick. Man, he's just getting started.

Probably the most excited I have been for the Wolves in a very long time.

From the replay, it looks like a lower back injury for Leonard Miller. He went down HARD. 1:02 mark on the video linked below.

From what I can gather, no reason to be alarmed. Just a little banged up.

Good game to win. We tried our best not to, but Towns may have had the best game I recall in recent memory.

It’s really weird, but something seems to have finally clicked with KAT.

He’s playing under control and not letting his emotions get the best of him. He’s giving thoughtful answers in his pressers instead of his usual canned sound bites.

And he’s taken over games while Ant has been struggling some.

It’s huge if it sticks.

A week ago I was willing to trade him for Quickley, Robinson and picks. When I see this version of Towns, I'm thinking Edwards, Towns, McDaniels are easy to build around.

As you said, if this sticks, we're looking good.

It’s like he hit rock bottom in the Celtics game and has been great at controlling himself ever since

Even started off with some foul trouble. Big game coming up against Philly C to see if he has fixed that.

J McDaniels out 2-3 weeks with his ankle strain. Ouch. Hope the 'next-up' strategy works. Too good of start to get ruined with injuries.

I actually don’t worry about 2-3 week ankle sprains at this time of year. No matter who it is. It’s a long season. It gives the injured player some rest time, and it gives some extra minutes to other players that could prove to be good chemistry building.

As long as they take care of the injury and fully recover and don’t let it become a lingering thing, it’s not a big deal. Worst case it could cost them a win or two sure, but that’s not the end of the world.

If the Wolves win the in-season tournament, does that snap Minnesota's drought of no championships for the Big 4 male sports since 1991?

Good time to face Philly. They lost a tough one in OT last night and Embiid (41), Maxey (47), Harris (43) and Melton (41) all played big minutes.

This is just a bit more important, don't you think?

Not really, no.

It just replacing a couple regular season games and adding a cash prize.
