    The TWolves are starting to get good. They've beaten a few good teams recently.

    The outcome of this game could be disappointing if the Raps come out meek and weak.

    Well, they did beat Utah on Saturday night at home so anything is possible. Especially against us.

    No ... just the little voices in my head seem to keep repeating itself, repeating itself.

    See what I mean?

    According to Holly MacKenzie from the SCORE, it would appear as though Andrea is day-to-day with an ankle injury. Might not play tonight vs. Wolves.

    Hedo's shot is damn flat tonight.

    One thing I forgot to mention regarding DeMar this morning in my other thread, one big area of improvement he needs to work on is his movement without the ball. He stands around too much on offense when he isn't touching the ball. Set some picks. Make your man move instead of giving him the advantage on D.
