I remember it like it was yesterday ... biggest hose-job I've ever saw in the NBA. Someone should have been arrested.

Oh great, Chris Webber calling the game next Thursday at Target Center (with Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller). Get ready for some "manna" jokes!

I saw that too and was like "Oh crap." Webber vs Kahn part two. Also, he now has a lot of fire with Love's recent comments. Combine that with a blowout game and wolves looking bad... The perfect storm :lol:

we matchup well; OKC has the size and defense to handle our frontcourt, and we have AK and Rubio for Durant and Westbrook...in theory this will be a BARN BURNER

Hopefully a couple of games give Rubio his legs back. I know he won't be 100%, but we can at least hope he can trust his knee enough to play defense like he wants.

Emotional exchange between KG and McHale. McHale devastated with recent events and I'm sure today's tragedy in CT, didn't help either.

Like one of our posters said on the GB, KG might come across as a douche on the court, but he's a great guy off it.

Well the last part he said was right, that us and SA have the best-executed half-court offenses.

“@JimPeteHoops: The best teams in the NBA shoot well from 3 pt range and at the rim. #Twolves are 30th in 3-point FG% at 29.6% and 27th at the rim 58.8%.”

That's pretty pathetic, particularly the at-the-rim numbers.

Well when you have Ridnour who can't make a lay-up and Barea who throws up prayers at the rim...
And we do have more put-back attempts with Love and Pek than the average team I would imagine.

The bigger concern for me is the 3-pt shooting. Although Shved has picked it up lately we need more consistency from all of our guys.

I think once Love rounds into form the number will go up a bit...and we really need to see Budinger back. Guys like Roy/Lee shot so bad early on for us...and Budinger wasn't shooting great from back there like he usually does. Rubio should even improve that number, sadly.
