One hundred percent free throw shooting! That's 100%!!! I've been waiting all season. Now I can die happy.

After Friday night's excellent game and today's excellent game, I've concluded the Wolves are better off with a center-less lineup. Everybody gets into the act, the play is balanced, rebounds are still fine, and they score more. Sans Center is my Rx for Wolves success. (I'd allow one to come in off the bench once in a while, sure.)

Good win!

Geez, that's a 40% drop off in scoring for Love. Is he hurt?

The Wolves can still make the playoffs, they have to get hot and on a little roll. their schedule is crappy right now, it does get better toward the end of the season. C'mon rest of the Wolves, let's win 3-4 in a row. You can do it!!

Go Wolves! Ugh...I hate when you read a sports story and they don't tell you the records of both teams involved after the game. The wolves are now __ and __ with ___ many games left to go in the season.

jaybar..What if the center was quality. Pek isn't to bad. But I agree, a poor center isn't worth their salt. Speed and 3 forwards are far better.

if Utah makes the playoffs & we get their pick, Tyler Zeller would look great in a wolves uniform.

A nice win! But, the Wolves need to get Pekovic back. And, hopefully he can play through his ankle issues. Beasley needs to get past his court toe and show more effective play on a consistent basis. And, Adelman needs to have Wes Johnson come off the bench. I would like to see Ellington get a chance to start at shooting guard...maybe Johnson would do better without the pressure of starting. He's not good enough to help this team as a starter right now!!

...and it would help if Barea could stay healthy for more than a couple of games at a time! :-)
