That was amazing! Turned off the volume when the Wolves were down by 20, grabbed the mail to catch up on the bills, then sat amazed as this team scrapped and clawed their way back. Down by 10... down by 6... down by 2... finally tied. Eventually they went ahead for the victory. What determination and grit. Total team win.

Looks like our bench is very under rated...go Wolves

Speechless. I left them for dead at the end of the first half. Amazing 2nd half and comeback, especially given the were down 22! Exact opposite of what happened all too often last year....great 1st half only to lose it in the 2nd half. Nice win gents!

Coach is a heck of a lot smarter than the rest of us. Now that he has his players (good-bye, bye to Beasley, Flynn, Wes Johnson, Toliver, etc. etc. etc. for 10 yrs) this is a team with many moving parts and most of them can play high quality basketball. Love the never say die approach to the game. One key point in this game is holy crap Williams is not very good. The guy was lights out in college, but can't shoot a lick in the NBA. Dude, work on the shot more, more, more. Great win #2, woo hoo. A billion dollars, that's crazy.

The bench is saving the Twolves so far! Good to see Kirilenko and Pekovic step up as starters tonight. I hope Brandon Roy, Derek Williams and Luke Ridnour pick things up. Go Twolves! :-)

What the hell happened? I left when they were down 22. Damn! I didn't realize yet that we have an excellent team even without Love and Rubio.

The fourth quarter was a treat to watch. Intelligent ball movement, great shooting, energy, smart D... all the things our bench lacked last season. Can't wait to see them in action on Friday!

Derick Williams is good by the way. His shot is streaky but once he gets one more year under his belt he is going to really be valuable. Remember he hasn't played much b-ball prior to college ball. Plus with K-love whining about not being on a championship caliber team last year, we may be wise to be patient with D-Williams in case K-Love decides to dip out.

Dante C...can bring it. What did we give up for him? lol Kahn certainly got that one right. Shved...keep playing him! By the middle of the season he will be consistent and possibly dominating. Just needs the minutes. He is very very good. Coach is figuring out who needs to be in the game in the fourth quarter. Barea better stay healthy. Luke...hmmm...his back may still be bugging him a little. I like him...with another ball handler in the game with him to help facilitate. Derrick Williams and Roy...will have time to show us what they can do...but the fourth quarter time must be earned on the court. Second team...not...just team. We have the guys...nice job! Go Wolves!
