To bad the Wolves don't play in the east...they might have a shot at the 8th spot!

I still believe that this Wolves team will make the playoffs. We have the players and the coaching staff to get it done. Definitely Kevin Love is our MVP without a doubt. Let's support our team, instead of talking trash. Go Woooooolves!!!!!

Another meaningless win over a CBA team. Wait, the Wolves have been in the CBA for the last 25 years so they might have a good chance of winning a CBA title finally.

A nice on the road stomping of a .500 team. That was a good Wolves win.

It's great that they won. A good team took care of business on the road against a bad team from the East. They must follow that up with a win against the 76ers Wednesday night or it doesn't mean a thing.

Id rather we beat legitimate elite teams. That would impress me more.

Pffffttt. People have been complaining we don't beat playoff teams...now we beat an Eastern playoff team and it becomes, "I'd rather beat legitimate playoff teams." Sad.

the bench played some serious minutes and put up over 30 points and 19 boards while playing some serious D. The addition of a seasoned veteran like Luc has raised the ante in the competition for minutes...Yes it wasn't the Heat, but any blowout victory on the road is rare. Keeping fresh legs is the key and that requires quality depth and a deep rotation. While the starters get the ink, the rest are the difference makers. So a tip of the hat to a greatly improved performance by the rest of the team.

I don't care who they played, when you beat another NBA team by 27 points on their own floor, while resting your superstar the entire fourth quarter, that is a team playing at a very high level! I've said it before, this team is still trying to find itself, as result of adding some key new pieces this last offseason. They are very Jekyll and Hyde right now. If they don't show up to play, they lose by a coupe points to teams they should always beat and/or lose by a couple points or less than 12 to good teams. On nights that they are 'on' and come to play defense, they are a handful for any team in the league. They just need to work on establishing consistency during this brutal 'road heavier' first half of the schedule. If they can stay around 500 before gong into the the second half that will have a majority of home games, the Wolves could make some noise. Especially when they get Turiaf and Buddinger back. Turiaf makes a big impact in terms of speed, energy, and defensive toughness on the second squad.
