Heat @ Timberwolves..can we do 5 in a row & back to .500?! 

Post#1 » by theGreatRC » Wed Nov 24, 2021 7:48 pm

Early in the season, but this is a HUGE game.

I think the players know this too, can we beat a quality team in the NBA? Let's find out tonight
2021 Wolves will make the playoffs

Big time game. The crowd should be popping hard. The Heat are a good tam. Jimmy Butler and KAT will probably bring huge energy. Butler would love nothing more than to embarrass KAT and the squad and get the win so expect the Heat to come out hard. This could be disaster if we flop but if we step up this could be game of the season.

Beat the Heat, get to .500, have the first 5 game win streak since we had Thibs and Butler. This could still be the team we all hoped it would be when the season started, let's see if we will like that after today.

Go Wolves!

Sounds like it's near a sellout right now. The electricity in the arena should be huge!

After I got a taste of the good life in pre-seaosn with a game right in the action, I have been looking for cheap (around 100 bucks) near floor level seats. You can find them for resale sometimes. I was really considering going to this game but when were losing I lost interest.

Now that we got juice again I can't imagine how awesome it would be to be at the game, up close tonight. The energy should be nuts, at least tostart. If this is a competitive game the building will be near playoff level I think. The fans have also been rowdy ever since that Pro Wrestling PPV it seems to me, I feel like wolves fans are just ready to pop hard, Let's hope the team gives them something to howl about tonight.

This could either be epic, or embarrassing

I wonder how the Heat will match up assuming man to man. Bam is the only starter who can hope to guard KAT. Jimmy will want Ant. Lowry will probably guard Bev. The problem for them is Tucker is too small to stop V8 at the rim. Should be interesting.

Some potential disaster areas. Bam is likely going to feast, he is a beast on the offensive glass, our rebounding issues will be heavily exposed tonight. Butler is playing at an MVP level in some eyes, he will probably be at the line all night.

I also expect them to put Butler on KAT a lot, the Clippers have eviscerated us with putting a small on Towns and letting their big double and interfere, pretty great playbook for beating us. Will be very interesting to see if we can counter tonight.

I think they'd put Tucker on Towns, not Butler.

After Monday’s win against the Pelicans, we have exceeded the amount of wins we had in the first half of last season (7)

Like D1SGRUNTL3D said, it'll either be a nice win, or an embarrassing loss.

I'm sitting on the win side of the fence though... Hesitantly anyway ;)

We need two things. First we need the good Dlo, and second we need for someone to get an iv line and pump KAT full of that sweet NOLA coffee. We will take 23 point first half KAT every game. But to be safe give him more at halftime so he ends with 46.

That's crazy! But accurate....

We were 7-29 at the all-star break.

I have a bad feeling. We’ve sucked ass at home against teams on the second night of a back to back.

Something stupid like Duncan Robinson hitting 7 3s.

For KAT tonight is personal. General Soreness put the soft label on KAT, KAT probably loves ruining the General’s night. Also the Wolves know that they need to beat playoff worthy teams to prove the hype true. I have a good feeling about tonight.

This is like a playoff game to me. I'm psyched!

This game determines if I'm optimistic for our future or despondent once again. :)

We'll see what we're made of for sure.

Coach Finch's changes have been huge. We'll see.
