Wolves @ Pelicans Gamethread...4 in a row tonight?? 

Post#1 » by theGreatRC » Mon Nov 22, 2021 8:00 pm

I'm really excited about this one, but this team really needs to play with the defensive intensity they've been showing ever since the Clippers game.

This is a game the Wolves need to get. Can’t be losing to worse teams and expect to have a shot at the post season.

A win here and 4 in a row would go a long way towards repairing this team. The goal is to reach .500 and then play above that for the season. Go wolves!

While that is a good goal, my goal is to stay relevant until we trade for size. Without a move this team is as doomed as a lobster at a 5 star seafood restaurant.

I'm quietly confident... an unfamiliar feeling...

I worry about Valanciunas, he kind of owns Kat.

If the 'big 3' put up 20ish points each again then I'm confident we'll get a W.

I'm with you brother. We need KAT to go God mode early and retake the upper hand.

At 3-15 I doubt the Pelicans are trying to salvage this season. Still no word on when Zion gets back either. Don’t be surprised if they tank. Though I agree with all of you that we better not let our guard down and we better win the easy ones.

I'm afraid of Val drawing double teams, putting KAT into foul trouble, a couple of Pels scrubs getting unreasonably hot. We've seen all these things with the Wolves already. That said, let's beat our this year's highest victory margin!

Love for Towns to start getting some calls and have Val get into foul trouble early. That would all be guarantee a Wolves win.

One 43 point win wasn’t enough for you, now you need a 44+. I like how you think ;)

Team is going to have to live with the fact that Val may get a ton of calls, don't complain, have to play on.

We owe these guys a beat down tonight. Going for 4 in a row. Sure seems odd writing that. A loss tonight might be even worse than some of the others. So....we just better not lose. :)

And get away with a lot of fouls that don’t get called.

Some nasty defense by us.

Look at the effort and defense. Who are these guys in blue?
