Wolves (7-6) host Nets (3-8) tonight. With Brooklyn missing its two best players (Deron Williams & Brook Lopez) it’s absolutely a game that Minnesota should win.
But in terms of reasons to watch, this one’s easy. Kevin Garnett is back in town and in the lineup, possible for the last time ever at Target Center.
I spilled a lot of virtual ink yesterday about the Wolves season to date. They went on to pummel the Lakers, defeating LAL by the most points in franchise history and for the first time in years. Three pointers by the Kevins, Outlet bombs to Brewer, pesky backcourt defense, and a Ricky Rubio triple double all factored into the win. Oh, and Nick Young’s shot selection.
Another big one tonight at the same arena, against a much better Clippers team.
Update (11:05 A.M. CST): It’s a cliche , but we’d be remiss not to honor Ricky’s triple-double (highlights here) by giving it the proper Ice Cube treatment (see 1:18) – Patrick J
It Was A Good Day (NSFW, depending where you W)
This was the takeaway from last night’s game. Everything else was about as expected. Lopsided loss (21st consecutive to LaLa), another injury to a key player (Pek) and an all around look of hopelessness. I’ll have more tomorrow.
