First time anyone has ever said that.

But yeah. That 65-yarder to Wright just last week.

Cal Clutter and Hards at the Target Center tonight for the Wolves.

Williams is actually playing like he looks like an actual top 5 pick tonight.

Everybody looks good when they can every 3 they take. That said he has been better the last couple weeks.

Derrick Williams never saw a shot he didn't like.

This is true. His skillset does not fit in well with Adleman's system. If he is not traded he is going to have to figure out a way to fit in.

Anyone know the reason for Adelman not being there?

Probably a family matter. Good luck to him I guess.

Porter is making a huge mistake leaving Ridnour in. He can't guard his man at all. Rubio needs to be in.

Glad they got the win. If Adelman was coaching I don't think it would have been that close.

Above .500 again. AK, Pek, and Williams with nice nights. Rubio looked better as well.

The Gophs basketball team has now moved to #8 in national rankings. Can't remember the last time they were this good. Maybe our first ever Final Four team in 1997? Half my life ago.

Good gawd I can't believe they only have one Final Four appearance. Well Tubby is doing something right. Would that not be THE coolest thing in the world if both the men's basketball and hockey teams captured NCAA titles?

It could be fun this coming couple months for a change in MN sports.

Hahaha, that's great.

Minnesota winning the NCAA hockey title. I bet.

If the Wolves manage to stay a few games above .500 while Love is out, I could see Kahn strongly considering trading him. Some have been pointing out that the team plays better without him, record and numbers-wise. Maybe there's some truth to that.

I completely expect them to get crushed tonight though.

If Williams can consistently play like he's played the last few nights (and he's going to get his chance to prove that now) they should linger around the 8th spot or so. Rubio is going to be critical the way him and Williams can get that ali-oop and Rubio dishing it out to everyone else like he used to. Rubio, Pek, AK, Williams, Barrea, Shved, Cunningham might have what it takes to keep this team alive.

Has been great this year. Very underrated signing. Should be in contention for ROY. Definitely a top 5 rookie. Team would be in a very different situation without Shved, Barea and Cunningham's hustle on D.

The only trade that would hypothetically make sense would be Love to the Lakers for Gasol+. The only problem is the Lakers don't have anything of value after that and I don't think they have their 1st rounder until 2017 or something.

He has been great and fun to watch.


Adelman now has to rally the troops and get those close late-gamers sewed up more now...

Wouldn't want anything from LA. Kahn could get a top 3 pick and a couple promising recently drafted studs for Love.
