As long as the NBA continues to apply its rules in this subjective manner, the NBA team that plays at the place known as the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN should change their name from the 'Timberwolves' to the 'Generals'.

If you have to talk about being scrappy, then you aren't scrappy. The scrappiest team in the league is the Phoenix Suns, IMO. I don't understand the Wolves coming out and laying an egg in the first half. What's the excuse this time? Tired legs? Too cold? The Pelicans are going to give them all they can handle, and because the Wolves have yet to show professionalism and true grit, I wouldn't wager one dollar on us beating Davis and company. Hoping we do, of course.

What, if any thing happens to the refs that blew the call.

It is time to let our two rookies start seeing the court a little more. The second unit stinks, let's see what these two can bring. Buddinger and Tariaff's return should help too. Officiating in the NBA is a joke!

Possibly if your not giving good effort you get pulled from the game. That's on the coach to show he means business.

Remember the official who was fixing think he was the only one. The NBA is a joke!

How did the ref, standing 5 feet away, not see what everyone in the building saw? Tim Donaghy has nothing on that clown. We wuz robbed!

Forget what the NBA says. Everybody already knew the ref blew the call. I want to hear an explanation from the ref about why he refused to call a foul on such a blatant hack. I also want to see these incompetant refs who are obviously on the take get some kind of punishment for the blatant mistake. Players get punished for their on court transgressions. Referees should get punished too. Fine them and suspend them. That should make them think twice about cheating and fixing games.

Interesting that Tim Donaghy is mentioned here. What do Donaghy and Malloy ,(the ref that didn't call the foul), have in common? They both attended the same high school in Pennsylvania. Oh, and guess who else attended that high school? Joey Crawford! How many very poor calls hasn't he made? How many pro Laker calls? It is pretty obvious that the other two are also on another payroll.
