Great game. Great team effort. And Kevin Love signed a new contract. Go Wolves.

Love the defensive efforts tonight, especially in the fourth quarter. If they keep this up, there'll be more Ws to come. Ellington should be in the starting lineup instead of Ridnour, who is great on offense but a liability in defense.

Nice road win for the Wolves. Darko was swatting balls away left and right.Efficient offensive game for Pek, 4-5 and 13 points. Rubio struggled with his shot (4-16) and turnovers (7), but again he just fills the stat sheet to help his team win,8-9 from the line, 12 ast, 7 rebounds, and 4 steals. Ellington is becoming a very nice, consistent option off the bench (16pts) and is thriving under Adelman. Love was a beast again and that pick on Beaubois was brutal. This was a dominant win,over the champs on the road, and it never really seemed in doubt. Hopefully they can get this thing over .500.

The way they controlled the game after halftime was very impressive. You kept thinking Dallas would make a run in the 4th, but the Wolves answered every time.

Excellent free throw shooting tonight. Just excellent. Now keep it up.

....What's this? We actually have a basketball team in this town? Maybe?

Johnson was gamer tonight. His team needed him, and he stepped up. Hopefully when he gets healthy, he can build off of that. Pretty much every available player needed to play well if there Wolves were going to have a chance. And they all did. Great game.

To see the Wolves play like this when they are missing key players is awesome. Add to the mix Luke, Beasley, JJ, Webster and Miller. This is already a fun year to watch Wolves Bball, it should only be getting better. Just checked Rubio's stats compared to other rookies this year...he's actually shooting a decent fg percentage compared to other rookie guards. I like his competitiveness and fire.

The last paragraph is priceless "Coach gave me minute of rest, I say thank you." Haha; great game, I love this team.

He's 21 years old and playing like this in a shortened season and way to many games for any body. They better find a way to help him out on minutes played or that young man will hurt himself, badly.
