Lakers 105, Timberwolves 102: Welp…

I waited to post this recap of the game last night because I didn’t know the outcome of the game until a short time ago. While I know there is plenty to talk about with Derrick being a scratch starter for Love right before tip-off or Pekovic being a monster against two twin towers from […]

Nuggets 103, Wolves 101: Work smarter not harder

That was not a fun way to lose a basketball game. Denver’s side of it will talk about how they gutted out the win with depth and heart and all of that crappy romance novel stuff that people love to spit after a win like this. And on some level, it’s completely valid. Ty Lawson […]

Wolves 102, Bobcats 90: K.I.S.S.

Keep it simple, stupid. It’s funny how basic professional basketball can be sometimes. You’re bigger and stronger than the opponent so you pound it inside and get easy points. You have a problem with turnovers so you just stay more patient and stop giving the ball to the other team. You’re facing the worst team […]

The last thing you'll ever need

This is the in-game, jumbotron video from the game “Where in the world is Nikola Pekovic? in all of its glory. Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

Wolves 86, Kings 84: Absence makes the heart grow… well that wasn't so bad

While some might complain about Kevin Love’s suspension being unjust, I’m trying to look at it as a positive thing. I’ve grown tired of Kevin Love’s complaining to officials this season. I’m fine if he wants to belabor a point or fight for his team verbally during stoppages in play, but when he’s taking an […]

It's time to Pek a fight

Watching the Indiana Pacers punish the Wolves with physicality the other night made me a little jealous. The Pacers want to punish you. They want you to feel their presence every second of the ball game. Stop-n-Pop at Canis Hoopus put it beautifully when he said: The Pacers entered last night’s tilt with a single […]

Pacers 109, Wolves 99: Fight or flight

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” – Michael Gerard Tyson Forget the Danny Granger incident in the third quarter. We can pretend this was a turning point in the game and that it fired Granger up to lead his team over our beloved Wolves. We can pretend he wasn’t already […]

Wolves 105, Mavericks 90: Sift through the injuries and you'll find a basketball game

Dirk Nowitzki didn’t play against the Wolves Wednesday night. Does it cheapen the road victory? It’s easy to look at this game flippantly and just assume the Wolves got a road victory in Dallas because the Mavericks were missing their best player. And on many levels, that certainly helps the gameplan and execution of the […]

Wolves 93, Pistons 85: It's time to galvanize

Potential is stupid. I have discussions with basketball fans every night on the Daily Dime Live chat on ESPN.com and every night I read comments about how good several young prospects in the league are going to be. There’s nothing wrong with being excited about what could happen in the future. As a Wolves fan, […]

Wolves 99, Kings 86: RPGs are fun for the whole family

Stars in the NBA can be incredible, stat-accumulating displays of effort, skill and whatever that extra special something is that makes them the elite 1% of NBA players. We marvel at their touch, power, speed, agility, and hand-eye coordination throughout a basketball game. We want to buy their jerseys and show everybody which star we […]
