Wolves 76, Hornets 110

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press: How can a team that scored a season-high 131 points one night struggle to score a season-low 76 just 24 hours later?     From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune: But fact is, Wittman feared this might happen, if not to this extent. His team was shorthanded for the second consecutive game with […]

Wolves Updates 12/22

From Jery Zgoda/Star Tribune: I’ve never played an NBA game, but I got my first assist tonight.

Musings of a Wolves Fan… (12/19/07)

T-Wolves -vs- Golden State Warriors (12.19.07)   BOXSCORE:   POSTGAME PODCAST: WARRIORS POST GAME COVERAGE:     Well well well.  Shockingly we blow an early 14 point lead and lose again.  Ok, not shocking at all.  I didn’t actually go to tonight’s game because I’m kinda rundown and not feeling too well.  […]

From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune: Twenty-four minutes of precision and a 62-54 halftime lead fell away once again Wednesday, when the Wolves — in the third quarter’s first seven minutes — committed three times as many turnovers (six) as they had in the entire first half (two).
