Need to keep Shved down to about 32 minutes per game. Need to find a SG.

ARRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Need to keep wins like this coming along. We need players like Dante tonight to step up when the game truly matters and make big plays. Right now, we don't have many of those players.

Cant believe Wolves let them that close into it, it's like the team completely lost it in the last 2 minutes. Thank god we finished it out.

Honestly, I like him best off the bench at least this season. He was huge for that second unit.

The Hawks were another team that held over us for a long time and they were on my hit list although way down. Feels good to scratch off another team.

The best part about Dante's shot was how calm and relaxed he was taking and making it. His release was super slow and his reaction was like "Yeah, I knew it went in".

Fun game. A little too exciting at the end, but a lot of great performances. Rubio is looking stronger, so the future looks brighter.

-How did Derrick look?
-Do we know why Rick is out
-How did Ricky play?

Exactly. Felt like we were throwing the game.

Yep. Shved was obviously tired at the end.

Nice win though they made it a bit too interesting at the end.

Clearly Rubio has defensive prowness ... I like Rube/Shved ... would like to see Ricky get a floater.

not sure what to do with Love possibly being out a while ... I gotta think a SG would be as important as anything, but if its another patch job then no point
Flip response to Love wanting out, "He has no reason to be upset, you're either a part of the problem or a part of the solution"

He wasn't playing way worse than D-Will, he just wasn't scoring as much as D-Will.

Dante >>>> The Lion.

You're just hating on D.Will. I suppose you missed Cunningham's double-dribble. DC played a nice 4th besides the mental mistake but he's not ">>>>".

D-Will is a worse player than Dante.

That's why he plays less than Dante.

Not because Adelman hates him or any other weak BS.

Because CunningHAM can do anything D-Will can (hit open shots) and then he's going to rebound like a madman, block shots, steal the ball and be a giant pain in the butt for the opposition, without trying to do what he can't do and disrupting the flow of the offense.
