Adelman should stop toying around with lineups that are not working. Why is Wes playing more minutes than Ellington? Players like Wes and Milicic need to start earning their minutes just like everyone else. Just because they're a top-4 pick or an overpaid center shouldn't guarantee them in the starting lineup especially if there are other more deserving players.

Quit starting Wes Johnson and Darko. Reality check Coach, Wes is not ready for the big time and Darko is still sick. Coaching decisions are made easier when you keep it simple and DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE TEAM. C'mon Coach.

Wolves shoot at home like they are on the road. If they don't start playing better at home, Coach should put them in a local hotel as a team like they are on the road. Maybe this young team has better focus when they are stuck together in a hotel instead of hanging out at home.

Danny Granger was the best player on the court tonight ... and it wasn't even close. Better team won tonight... tough match-up for the Wolves. Beasley... the player in the Rockets game was a really nice surprise, tonight was the player we expect to see most nights. This is why they say he has no trade value. Way too erratic.

Wes Johnson joins Flynn as a certified bust. Derrick Williams doesn't remotely resemble a #2 pick thus far. 3 wasted draft picks chosen #2, #4 & #6 in the last 3 drafts. Wolves have to draft much better, they are 2 or 3 players away from competing with the up-and-coming Pacer team. Scrap the Muskies uniforms.

Why not pay homage to the Minnesota Pipers?

What did KLove and all Wolves fans learn tonight? Don't make Danny Granger mad! Don't ever make Danny Granger mad!

Once again, let us quote Mr. Love: "God forbid we come out and start a game well"

Was at the T.C for this game. I knew this was going to be be a tough game for the guys to win, but I honestly expected more fight than what they showed. I sat about 10 rows up from behind the wolves bench and I can tell you that no one was more upset than Brad Miller. During that poor stretch at the beginning of the 4th he jumped up so quick from the bench...lol. If his body was on the same page as his mind, he probably would've begged Adelman to let him into the game so he could knock some guys around; particularly Granger. When Adelman called TO a few seconds later, Miller started getting into Beasley and Williams. It was an aggressive delivery, but it was a reaming out that was definitely warranted due to all their defensive lapses. Encouraging words were probably mixed up in there too, I'm sure. Hopefully they win this next one.

Tonights game was really bad. The one good note out of tonights game was Pek is becoming very consistent. This is a really good sign he is a solid starting center in today's NBA. Team looked tired and soft kinda like the Lakers game. Here are my player grades for then first 22 games for my expectations. Love A+ Rubio A+ Pek B+ Luke B Toliver B+ Ellington B+ Darko C+ Johnson D- Williams C Barea F Randolph B Adelman A
