Sorry for the lack of front page updates over the holidays. Thank you to regulars to our forums for keeping things interesting over the past week or so.
Tonight brings the return of Wes Johnson, Michael Beasley and Seb Telfair. The goal ought to be to simply prevent Dudley, Gortat or Scola from having a notable game and the win should not be difficult to come by. Dragic remains questionable for Phoenix. Amazingly, the T-Wolves are favored by 8.5 points tonight, if you are someone that is interested in sports betting. The Suns are dysfunctional and atrocious, play no defense whatsoever (besides Gortat and Dragic somewhat), and are probably going to be without Dragic tonight due to a minor injury. AND Phoenix played a game last night as well. I just don’t see how they can hang with the Wolves at home, although I am also not sure if I’d lay 9 points either. Tough call. If this isn’t your cup of tea, then maybe just go do some Super Bowl betting over the internet intead.
For the Wolves, Phoenix brings another game where we just hope these guys break out of the funk. Love couldn’t hit the broad side of an Oliver Miller, and just needs a monster night to get his confidence back. As expected, Rubio’s return to date hasn’t quite brought back the magic to this team yet. I would suspect we will continue to see growing pains for this next quarter with the back half being something of a revival for the top few guys.
Other team notes:
-Brandon Roy was set to return tonight, but signs are looking like he will shoot for at least one additional full practice before returning.
-Rubio’s minute limit has been increased from 18 to 24.
-Chase Budinger is on track to play the last 1/4 of the season.
-All quiet on the free agency front after the Wolvs brought in Lazar Hayward, Joey Graham and James Anderson earlier in the week.
