Paul out.

I see TNT has found a way to avoid speaking about us at all. Good call.

I feel this one is winnable. I always feel that way vs Clippers.

And...the Wolves, as expected, will sign European swingman Mickael Gelabale on Friday after Lazar Hayward's 10-day contract expires following tonight's game.

Gelabale probably already is town and very well could be at practice tomorrow. A member of the French Olympic team last summer, he will help address their needs for a defender and three-point shooter.

Rubio and Williams starting? Nice. I wonder if Williams will keep that starting spot when Rick comes back.

Acting coach Terry Porter played coy again during his pregame media availabilty about who would start, but it's clear Rick Adelman, who's calling the shots from outside Target Center, felt the Wolves needed to change things up.

I like Shved in that sixth man role too. Good move Adelporter.

Somehow I missed the Rubio starting bit. I wonder if it's for Alexey or Luke. Probably the former.

Why else would I put the ode to Hanne in my title? You're off your game. And Luke is at SG.

Damn, for once the game apparently started exactly 7 pm. Missed the first 6 minutes :(
