It was really fun -- electrifying, really -- to be at this game. After it was done, Rubio said that despite the "tough times" the team is going through they will continue to work as hard as they can. That's all we can ask for. And if it can look like it did tonight, good defense and sharp shooting, all the better! Go, Timberwolves!

Most unbelievable story!...Alan Iverson was right!...Practice is overrated!..And so is experience, familiarity with teammates, familiarity with the offensive system....Who needs it?....Amazing!

Nice to see the new guys contribute. If we can stay in the hunt until we get some players back, and maybe find a valuable addition in the interim, the playoffs aren't out of reach.

@goldengoph. I'm afraid it's too late. Also, the Wolves were less successful when all the players were available.

We're a few games back with what, 40+ to play? Not even close to too late, Kuren. Having said that, the odds we make it are quite low. We've never even come close to having all our players back or at full strength so I'm not sure what you mean by we were worse.

AK continues to be the M V P of this team. Hovering at .500 record all yr he gets my vote for best player addition. The russian PG is next. These two keep the Wolves interesting. Get the other players back and lets get on a roll. Wolves.
