Wolves might be a little bit too late for this game.
There’s just something about this team. Everytime they really need a play to happen, it works out.
As per their style, the Wolves got the lead down to 10 points.
I get that Josh Howard wants to establish himself, but he doesn’t understand the offense to do what he is doing.
Wolves have to get some stops and easy shots. The momentum at home will go a long way.
Derrick Williams ought to take lessons from Carl Landry about finishing around the rim.
Luke is getting absolutely schooled by the Warriors point guards. He’s a fantastic back up but he really cannot stay in front of players.
These are certainly unique calls from the refs. Crowd is getting pretty nasty.
Two quick 3′s and Minny is right back in it.
No one is boxing out for Minnesota. Golden State is absolutely crushing Minnesota in the paint 30-6. No way you can win if that happens.
As good as DWill has been this game, his inside shot is still off.
Looks like the Wolves free throw practice paid off. 13/14 from the line.
Minnesota: 50 Golden State: 53
Wolves hopefully correct the dribble penetration flaw in their defense.
Minny getting abused in the paint. Fortunately, Warriors are a horrible defensive team.
Wolves going ultra small. Cunningham at the 5, Williams at the 4 and AK at the 3.
Referees going on a traveling binge. Didn’t they get the memo about not calling travels in the NBA?
David Lee going on a rebounding binge. Looks like Derrick Williams is our stopper now.
Malcolm Lee just got the worst of officiating on both ends of the court. Now has 3 fouls.
It’s amazing that no one has tried to move Dante Cunningham off elbows. He is absolutely deadly there.
Howard makes his presence felt on the defensive end with a quick steal then a deep 2 point jumper. Excellent start to his Minnesota career so far.
Shved is one of the streakiest shooters on this team. Either perfect stroke or an ugly brick.
Wonder what Josh Howard’s role will be. Could be a possible defensive stopper on the second unit? Or maybe a slasher with some midrange game.
Wolves lead the Warriors 27-22 after the first quarter. Hopefully, they can keep this up.
Kirilenko might be the best help defender in the league. His rotations usually in something good happening for the defense.
Steph Curry could really have helped this team if the Wolves had drafted him. His ankle problems aside, he’s a top 10 PG when healthy.
Of course, hitting two shots like that are going to help his confidence. Should have also had a four point play on the last one.
Derrick Williams has absolutely zero confidence. His ability to do anything on offense isn’t helping.
Festus Ezeli might be the steal of draft. He’s already making more of an impact than Harrison Barnes so far.
According the Jerry Zgoda, JJ Barea will be out till next month.
