Wolves played four quarters of good basketball tonight..Martin is a monster.. Haven't had a great shooter like him from the guard position, probably...hmmmm..ever..Love is fantastic as is the newly marvelous Brewer..Ricky, while not hitting his shot..is a great defender, assist man, steal man, and other then weird passes once in a while..is a good player.. Finally the bench came through.. Beating a good Maverick team..

Mr.Taylor...Get Loves Agent on the phone, get your check book out and sign Love to whatever it Takes to keep him here long term. You had KG and you saw what happened when You waited too long to sign him. Players like that come along once or twice in a Owners Reign, and for some Owners, never!! K Love is amazing. The way he took it over at the end was Big Time.

No worries as Kevin will be in the Laker uniform in 2 years.

This was a FUN game to watch. Great bounce back from Wednesday night. I can't think of any previous player who outlet passes like Love. Bob Pettit comes to mind, Bill Walton in his prime; Bill Russell...Love is just incredible in that regard!

i like what flip has done with this team, just wish he was the man in charge when we drafted johnny and ricky...if kevin leaves for LA i trust flip more than anyone else to pick up the pieces.

Wolves fast start is no mirage. Love, at 25 years old is a legitimate MVP candidate. Finally have a pure scorer in Martin who relishes the 4th quarter, can create his own shot and is shooting 57% on 3s. Brewer's energy permeates the whole team. Fun year after the Vikes/Twins debacles. The bench will improve when Buddinger is healthy and Rubio may not be worth a max contact with his shooting woes but he's an important cog.

I just want this bench to start producing more. And I want Pek and Rubio to find their game again--they aren't quite right yet. Otherwise very happy and can't say enough good stuff about Kevin Love--really he is fantastic. I hope in a few weeks Love and the Twolves will start being the main story in the sport section.
