Grizz are 100 percent going to make a run. We need to hold tough. This will very likely be a 5 point game at some point soon, we need to be able to fight back.

those last 2 plays were really well done imo..first Prince made a great pass to Beasley for the 3 and then Beasley returns the favor in the following possession..much better off-ball movement on offense too...this was missing during that losing streak

Wolves might come close to that franchise record of 27 threes made

If this sniffs 5 points, it’ll be a loss even if they win

Looking good at the half. Gotta keep up this intensity. Not just in this game but in every game.

Uh oh. Lead down to 24, but KAT just put it back to 26.

Not shooting or defending this well but this is the team I thought we would have when the season started. Happy to see them show up tonight. You have a top 12 defense and top 10 offense, you can make the playoffs.

Still lots of time lol. And it may not get to 5 points but I still think they will have a nice run.

Refs hate KAT but he has to stop talking to them. He just has to suck up the no calls. Stinks but its best for business. We need to get on their good side and start getting to the line. Good teams get free throws.
