Love was a beast, as usual. Nice win. Good to see the rookies getting some playing time, FINALLY. We're finally seeing the potential Mohammad brings. Dude can flat out score. And Dieng was also a revelation. Why these two young players have been sitting all year is a mystery. Adelman must have a policy not to play rookies. 3rd win in a row, a convincing win at that, against a bad team gives us hope. Now, let's do it tomorrow against Portland. And please give Shabazz more minutes. The second unit can use him.

All you had to do was watch KLove for the first 3 quarters tonight. He was on. Nice solid performance from Ricky and Chase. Good to see Deing playing hard and contesting shots. Heck, even Robbie dropped a three. Good night to be a Wolves fan.

Flip, for all that is holy, please build a team around Kevin Love. We are in the presence of greatness.

give Deing another year or two and watch out, the kid is going to be a good one.

Remember it's tough to give rookies minutes when you have Pek and Ronny ahead of them. Now it's their turn to shine. It will be a nice opportunity for them to show what they have. Nice win last night.

Guys, if the Wolves trade Love it won't be because they don't want to keep him. I thought that was obvious, they want to keep him it's just unclear yet if he's willing to stay here long-term. So they'd trade him if they're convinced he'll end up walking and get nothing in return. I hope that doesn't happen, but not too optimistic.

if you love Love, set him free. He'll never make a playoff with this franchise.

Eventually we will have to set Love free, unless we can come up with some players who will provide what our current ones can't to make the Twolves a winner.

Next year is crucial. Love needs to know Twolves are serious in surrounding him with the talent they need to succeed. That will keep him here. I think he knows the fans here love him and are steadfast, unlike fans in many bigger franchises.
