Kevin Garnett was nice enough to buy 1,000 tickets to this game (would a segment of Twins fandom boo if Joe Mauer did something like this at Target Field?)
The Wolves are playing better since Pek, Martin, and Rubio have come back from injury. But tonight they will be without Pek (foot) and Martin (the flu) and missing Pek might be more of a thing because DeAndre Jordan has been in beast mode lately.
Lets hope for the best.
Its a West Coast weekday game, I dont expect too many to be around for this one. But it should be entertaining. The Wolves are coming off a game where they blitzed the Lakers for 47 in the first quarter and between Love, Brew, and Rubio had an entire season worth of highlight reel material.
The Clippers have only played 2 home games this season. They have scored 126 and 137 in those two games. The third home game may have a final score of 160-150.
fire up the Colortinis cause its a late night West Coast NBA game
the Wolves are on a two game stop at Staples Center, playing the Clippers tonight and the Lakers (Kobe-less?) tomorrow. The Wolves have a tough stretch coming out of the All Star break with a West Coast swing (LAC Tues, LAL Wed, Phoenix Thurs and Portland Sat). 2-2 this week would be pretty good in my book.
364 days ago I left for work in the morning with an extra hop in my step. The Minnesota Timberwolves were scheduled to play the Los Angles Clippers that night. Two of the best power forwards in the league would be facing off, in Kevin Love and Blake Griffin. Blake was really hitting his stride about this time last season, quickly becoming must watch tv for anyone with League Pass. I even thought about taking a brief nap after work just to make sure that I would be able to stay up all night at watch the game.
I didn't get to watch the game that night. Instead I was in a hospital room, watching a PBS documentary on Jeff Bridges and checking for score updates on my telephone as Mrs Buffalo yelled at me and told me to put that thing away-- I did. A couple of hours later I was feeding her ice chips, shortly after that a new member of our herd joined us.
I've gotta say, I really don't remember who won that game but I am pretty sure it wasn't the Wolves. Maybe it worked out for the best that way. Maybe this way the Calf and I will be able to watch the Wolves take their revenge. Then again, it will probably be past his bedtime.
