The Wolves ended a six-game losing streak, thanks to point guard Ricky Rubio’s near triple-double and his tag-team play with teammate J.J. Barea that saved the game in the final 28 seconds.

No, no, no. Do not win any more games. It is time to play for the draft.

The Timberwolves were 21-of-31 from the free throw line and 4-of-14 on 3-pointers as they continue to shooting woes...with their skeleton crew. Do the Timberwolves and Gophers (who were struggling at the line again tonight in Nebraska) practice free throws and shooting together?! :-)

good for them...but what's with Adelman, he's sitting on the chair, head down staring at the floor, doesn't seem engaged in the game at all, has nine guys plays seven. I think the guy needs a break to just go home and take care of his family then come back, no one would blame him.

Ox what are you talking about ? All available 9 players played last night.

This was a win agins one of the worst teams in the NBA. Love hurt, Peck hurt, Stemmer, can't play more the 2 games in a row. This team was doom from the start. Williams, Rubio, and Ham, are the only bright spots on this doomed squad!

Love? Who's that?

Muddy Oasis, when it was evident players like Williams were wore out, when it was evident help was needed on the re bounding end, when we had no one to stop their big guy, given all that and more whats the point letting re bounders shot blockers, not bad scorers sit on the bench, for most of the second half? particularly when you only have nine guys to begin with, this is a tough few games coming up, why wear out seven guys.

Ox, every player played at least 15 minutes, all 9. Williams came in the game early in the 4th quarter and played great defense on Nene. He also had 8 rebounds in the game.. I think half came in the 4th quarter. Most importantly, you do know the Wolves won? Do you watch the games? As for Adelman staring into the ground, he is frustrated and instead of yelling at his players he puts his hands in his face or looks to the ground. I don't blame him at times.

I guess I just don't have any gripes when we have only 9 players, all 9 played at least 15 minutes and we won.
