Default 41-48 FT's??

I don't care that we only shot 39% from the field, anytime u hit 41-48 FT's in a game, you're gonna give yourself a great chance to win. Cut the turnovers down in this game as well (18) so that's a good sign. 6 players came off the bench to score 7 pts or more, led by Foye's 13 (7-7 FT's). Haven't gotten a chance to see the Wolves play yet this preseason but it looks like Craig Smith is gonna be a beast on the boards and be able to give us some offense as well. Hopefully Casey realizes this and will keep Madsen at the end of the bench. The one thing I don't like from looking at the box score is it seems the Wolves were trying to be TOO careful with the ball this game because we only had 8 assists, but only 12 fast-break pts as well. Anyone see the game? Must've been a lot of 1-on-1 stuff or what... But the Wolves have improved in each of their preseason games and stayed healthy and those are the main 2 things u wanna see during the preseason. Hopefully they can keep it up.

This should be a sign of things to come for the Timberwolves. High free throw percentages! The more Foye can get to the line, the better!

This team is loaded with tons of great Freethrow shooters, if they get to the line, they will sink em. Good thing to have, especially near the end of games.
