Primoz is the screen-man, he never ceases of putting screens.

As soon as I hear that bass line coming in, I cringe. Talk about overkill. I'm thankful I don't have to catch that Oh Henry's commercial anymore though.

Watching this game gives me a new appreciation for the Wolves. I really really like the team they put together. They need a good PG and a few knowledgeable veterans and then they'll become even more dangerous.

We're up at the half, but we should be up by a lot more cause of all the turnovers Minny had.

-Moon shooting too much- had one airball already.

-Bosh just so-so so far- Im sure he'll come alive in the 2nd half

-Bargs had 2 "dunks" so far, looked great

-I was thinking it must be really hard having a name like "McCant"

Rasho's been playing awesome tonight. Blocking shots, altering shots and nice grit and toughness too.

Happy to see some looks for Kapono too finally. Hopefully we'll see more of that in the upcoming games.

We needed a good blowout.

Awesome win fellas ...... but on a side note, I love Al Jefferson. That kid is going to be a star soon if not already. A nice cornerstone of the Wolves to build around.

Yeah, I also love Big Al. I think that was hesitant as I was at the beginning about the KG trade, it's looking like a really really good deal for the Wolves. Big Al, their likely top 5 pick this year in a great draft, Ratliff's expiring contract, and Telfair/Gomes are pretty solid pieces with potential too. That's at least 95% on the dollar, and IMO, close to the best you could get for a decling superstar who wants out. I wish we got that for Vince.

Great win guys.

Kudos to Moon. He did a much better job tonight of quickly closing out on shooters.

Parker finally showed us some of his craftiness around the basket that's been missing for awhile.

Wonderful ball movement. It's great to see 7 footers passing the ball like that.

uuggh. man.... don't even mention it. I've yet to see a "superstar" trade since the Vince one that has looked even remotely as bad for trading team.

Anyways, a solid win. wasn't expecting anything less. These last bunch of home games are getting a little anti-climactic...
