Good win over a crappy tea. We are not the worst of theNBA. Hornets and bobcats are terrible. Good to see the walking wounded come back to life and help the woeful cause. Glad to hear Pek is back wreaking havoc in the middle. And, mr. Williams scoring up a storm...what's with that? Love getting hurt might just be an oppty to see what he really can do. I hope he can play PF in this league. We can't afford to hit one good draft pick every ten years. Can they make a big run and get back to .500? Respectable in this NBA?

Another gutsy win from this committed and scrappy team. The Wolves shot 56% from the field -- fantastic! Love the way Rubio leads by example. So great to have Pek and AK back, rust and all. These guys don't quit. And they play as a team. It's very refreshing. I want to see more.

Hot digity dang! A win is a win. Good for the Wolves...been fighting back all season against many challenges. Congrats to DWill on his improved play. Great to see.

So Krilenko and Pek come back and all we can manage is a last minute win over the worst team in the western conference at home? That's not saying much. Happy for the win but one might think we should have beat them handily.

Jeepers, KINGSXMAN, are you never happy. Both Kirienko and Pek hadn't played for a month, they were rusty. We still have two of our starters out of the lineup - on top of that we have not had a consistent squad playing together. Ya, the Hornets are not a good team but winning when you get out rebounded like that is great. Winning with key plays right at the end is what we have been looking for.

You know, I sat in my truck and listened to the last couple of minutes of this game. I just could not turn this game off, somehow I felt that the Wolves would win. Glad they are starting to get everyone back who has been hurt. Again, I will always wonder how good this team would have been with everyone healthy for the whole season.
