That was fun. Looking like Martin really is a perfect fit in Adelman's system.

Way to go Wolves. Now let's beat the other LA team by 30 tomorrow night.

I can't stand the Lakers, for several reasons, so blowing them out on their home floor is awesome. Let's beat them four times this year.

Sweet! I'm watching the tape of the game right now. I've been stuck in So Cal for 25 years so it's nice to see the Wolves put an old fashion thrashing on the Lakers. Great defense and attacking the basket. Kev2 did great. What an amazing 1st quarter. On a side note, Pek looks like he is really struggling. His footwork is off. Last two years he was Mr. Automatic. In tonights game he didn't look right. Hope he is O.K. Loooking forward to see how they do against the other So Cal team...will be a bigger challenge than tonight.

I'm not expecting the Wolves to be able to win games against elite teams like the Clips and Heat and Spurs and Warriors until later in the season. Right now they are doing what they should be doing: beating the middle of the pack teams. I fear a blowout tomorrow night, with us being on the wrong side of it. But if it happens, it should be a great learning experience and keep our fellows humble and hungry and eager to learn. Maybe by mid-season, we will be more of challenge to the big boys.

Wolves had an incredible 42-16 lead using a simple formula of finding Kevin Martin, Love executing ridiculous outlet passes the NBA hasn't seen since Wes Unseld and Rubio at his very best driving and dishing.

Nice to see the Wolves turn it around so far. Hope they keep it up, and hope they stay healthy. Love is pretty much clutch, something you don't typically see with our pro teams. The Wild are showing improvement in that area, the Vikes do have Peterson but the Twins are full of gutless turds.

outstanding win. but against the clippers Pek better get his stuff together or Griffin is going to run all over him.

KLove is just an amazing bb player. I am really impressed with the other Kevin. He is Mr. cool when he gets an open shot. what a combo those two are becoming!
