Prediction

- 89
- 94

Minny might have a shitty record, but they've been playing some decent teams as of late and either winning close ones or losing by only a couple points. I'll be pessimistic again and say we lose a close one Sunday night in Minneapolis.

Predict and discuss!

I'll give them the benefit and count the last Clips game as just shaking off the rust from a week of waiting.

I say we win it, although Minny may make a game of it.

For how much they get made fun of for their record, MIN has competed night in and night out and has been in pretty much every game this season(especially lately). This isnt gonna be an easy game by any stretch of the imagination.

As long as we box out Smith and Jefferson we should still win, and double Jefferson every possession if Bosh is on him

Bosh and Bargs both looking confidant...

...AP making Marco Jaric look like Magic Johnson.....better D than Mo my ass.

a few tj ford classics - wild penetration and a pass to nowhere, luckily touched last by a wolves player. Final possession of the quarter, he has andreea wide open and ready for a 3pt shot, but he decides to pass to parker who wasn't free and missed a contested shot ...

tj is so quick though - if only he'd improve on his decision making, he would be an amazing point guard.

Good things on this game:

- Caldes defense on the 3rd.
- Kapono best shooter ever.
- I forgot, Bargs constantly smiling in the game. Havent seen that in a long time. 16 points 6 rebounds, 2 offensive
- kaponos head:




Tj trying to get a double double in the end with that three point shot.

This team is really annoying, can we play contantly like this please? This is a fucking rollercoster.

He's looked great so far since coming back, but surprisingly(never thought a toronto fan would say this eh?) not looking for his shot enough. But I guess thats a good thing when thats what the D is giving him. TJ's a top 5 PG when playing like he did today, better than Jose because TJ gets in the lane for his assists and gets others LAYUPS as well as wide open shots.
