The coach was boiling over a lack of calls that allowed Carmelo Anthony to rally the Knicks late.

Kind of frustrating this team can't have everyone healthy! Love seems to have something wrong with him to much! He needs to be in the lineup and the Wolves should have won this game today!

Kinda choked there at the end. Too bad Kahn threw away the number 2 overall draft pick. Could really use another impact player.

Yet another example of why the NBA lags behind every other major league in respect and true fan interest. Even JimPete was talking about it during the broadcast today--officiating in the league isn't designed to be honest! Those with more experience--or is it "street cred" in some cases?--get the calls. As a fan you don't even watch a game expecting the refs to be trying to accurately call every foul--you KNOW they won't. Some of the non-calls today were an absolute JOKE. How does the NBA expect to make new fans or even entice fans of moderate means to buy tickets and attend a game, with refereeing like that it's not the best team that night that wins. How can they stand behind such a biased ref job? How can they expect fans not to remember Donaghy and wonder how many other refs are working the same way when you go into games expecting and supporting such refereeing?

its amazing how these refs get paid, i try to get in to these games but all i get is an upset feeling in my stomach seeing how TERRIBLE these refs are. yeah we lost the game. but im not talking about that, im talking about how in general the refs are downright STUPID

Another game like Orlando, leading looking like they had the game won, only to I fail to close the deal at the end. Wow. C'mon coach, win the game. Get a stop on Anthony, foul, anything. Ug, just ug.

Kinda shows how much Love means to the Woofies ;-) Without him, Pek cleans up the rebounds and gets more touches, and they nearly beat what may be the best team in the league. On the road.

Bad loss... you're winning the whole game and lose it at the end. We were up by 4 with two minutes to go and in 1 1/2 minutes we went up by 4 to down by 4. We should have never lost that game ...

I said from the beginning of the 4th that soon the refs would take over. I hate to be so cynical but time and again it proves to be right. I love basketball but I get so sick of the biased refs. I thought likely Stern was at the game and made a call upstairs when it looked like the Wolves would win. Wouldn't this game be so much better if the script wasn't written beforehand?

Wow, I didn't realize how intimidating the MSG crowd is. Especially after Coach Woodson got the technical. The refs were even afraid to make a call after that as Jim Peterson pointed out on air. My issue is with the Timberwolves execution down the stretch. They didn't execute or make shots in the 4th quarter and the players were visibly nervous. They need more poise and confidence down the stretch. On a side note, I hate the way JR Smith was trying to bully Rubio. What a loser.

As a Wolves fan I have to admit that Melo really took over in the last quarter, he deserves credit for his play. That being said, I think the referees were awful, I'm just sick with fouls number 3 and 4 called on AK, it's almost like they took him out of the game on purpose. Not to mention fouls on JJ and Pek down the stretch... But that's the way the NBA goes I guess...
