Did not expect the Wolves to win. What a comeback! Great game.

Really big win! Wolvies looked like they were playing the 2nd night of a back-to-back in the first half. Hummel Telescope came through in the clutch. Showed some heart by coming back by 19. Pek controlled the paint. Big test vs. Spurs. Let's see what they're made of.

Good win Wolves. Back to .500.

There are bench guys who run faster, jump higher and make highlight reel plays, but Hummel knows how to play quality basketball. He passes and defends well and takes high quality shots all within a team concept. That's why Adelman puts him in the game so often.

Nice win...but pathetic when you have to rely on Hummel. Adelman was not happy, which is a good sign.

Rubio has as much heart as anybody in the NBA. He does countless little things to help his teammates, is a relentless competitor and a first class thief! The good news is Rubio is only in the second month of his second full season in the NBA!

I admit, I turned the channel after the first period.... someone forgot to play defense in that first period. Turned back to watch a few minutes of the second period too.. not much different. I suspect there were a few tired legs out there. Philly got hot, and you are not going to win games with long three point jumps shots. As the game progressed, and their legs got tired, it was a totally different team.

Don't mean to be negative after such a good comeback win BUT, the Williams trade is looking more and more pathetic. There HAD to be a better deal out there.

when Martin is having an off night it sure is nice to have a guy like Hummel to fill in, and maybe it might be the other way around soon.

I hope Budinger can get well soon... They need all the firepower they can get (to survive the long haul of the NBA season). Glad to see Love once again doing well.
