Since they won, I'm going to bite my tongue over the Wolves' [subpar] performance. On to the next one.

Good enough to win. Let me state the obvious by saying they are going to have to improve on defense to get 40 wins this year. But, they did find a way to win and that is a good start to the season.

Nice! Timberwolves basketball is a relief in contrast to the lousy Twins and Vikings. The Wolves are a breath of fresh air rather than being like a stinking rotten sock.

You can't win 'em all if you don't win the first one. Nice win.

jtrain good question.. I think 4 of the starters went around 40 minutes, and thats a ton this early. One thing I noticed last year about Adelman. He doesnt utiliaze a !0 man rotaion very often.. Williams had a good camp and is needed to take some minutes off those guys or the legs start to go and the injuries start to show.
