Defense won us the game. Pelicans had no answer for our zone. Extremely worried about us still chucking 3's like there's no tomorrow, especially when we're ice cold. But I guess that's all this team has on offense.

Hopefully the Wolves got the terrible 3pt shooting out of their system. Luckily tonight was a game where being ice cold didn't sink the team.

If we can beat the Heat who are pretty good, body Butler,, win 5 straight, and get back to .500 on the same night? That would be the game of the year.

LETS GOOOOO!!!!!

If I told you before the game we would win by double digits while hitting less than 23% of our 3s, would you believe me?

If the other team didn’t have 3 total wins, no.

I never want to see Okogie start again no matter the match up. Ever!

Defense seems like it's on back track after a lull few weeks back..it was those 3 games against Clippers which were extremely demoralising...rotatons on defense were impressive today. DLo has to find his shot...if not, offense will continue being consistent

Unless your wife is a die hard Wolves fan, you definitely shouldn't watch TWolves games live on your anniversary... if you want more of them that is.

Technically, it's already the 23rd where I'm from. But it's still the 22nd there, it counts for me! 8-)

Just imagine how good we'd be if DLo could hit at anything better than 18.8%... Just imagine.

True, but also add in Beasley and Ant too. All 3 are so darn streaky that when they're all cold, it can drive us insane. Ant at least has the ability to get to the rack when he tries, but the other two unfortunately will have to keep shooting away until they start dropping.
