Nice win at home against a decent team. KLove came through big in the fourth quarter.

Hate to complain but Wes Johnson needs to go! He is awful every game, tonights was a new low. I want to think the reason we have bust after bust is because we don't give a player enough time to develop. It just does not happen with him. He really does nothing games after game, 4 on 5 basketball. Great Win!!!!!!!

Nice to see a big win against a good team -- especially on a night when Love wasn't really on his game. He was clutch in the 4th Q but was not himself for the first 3. Ridnour was hot for awhile, Berea was aggressive. Philly was shooting the lights out a lot of the game..overall great win, Wolves are BACK!!!!

I don't care that we're a .500 team right now, games are FINALLY fun to watch. This team is FINALLY worth watching. That's about all I can ask for in Loserville.

dont give up on wes johnson yet. He has some ability, he just hasnt found his place yet.

I also thought Wes was terrible until I watched him in person in Houston on Friday night. He played defense quite well, and it doesn't hurt that he actually made a couple of shots.

19% from 3 land and 39% overall FG% and they still won. KLove is clutch and determined to find a way to win and his teammates are doing the same. Back at .500 and one game out of a play-off spot. Nice to see Rubio step and help the team win by scoring 22 tonight. The more confidence the individual players get, the more dangerous this team is becoming. It's all about being focused on winning and forgetting about personal stats that makes a good team great. They are headed in the right direction.

A very gritty, gutsy win -- total team effort. Not too many turnovers. Decent (not spectacular but decent) ball movement. Philadelphia is playing very, very well overall and has the league's top-rated defense. And we beat them. This is the kind of quality win that our team can learn from and build on. We were all smiles all the way home.
