Default Tomorrow @ Denver

They'll be taking a long flight back to denver tonight from LA to get ready for a rested Wolves team. KG's gonna have to come up big though if we're gonna have a chance and he's gonna need some help against the Nuggets frontcourt because they got a ton of talented big men they can throw at him. This is the kind of team that Mike James could come up big against, as I dont see Andre Miller being able to shut him down at all. Hassell has always played Melo tough as well so Ricky Davis will have to stay up in JR Smith's face to prevent him from going off. Nuggets lost a close one in LA tonight and the Wolves had a full days rest so i'll change my original prediction of a Nuggets win to a Wolves win, 91-88.

I like your call, only be cause of the tough loss by the Nuggets. I don't know whether that makes a difference though. It's always a tough bout between these two teams. They are in the same division. I think the Wolves have this one though, I told you guys we will win 7/10 of the first games and I stand by my word. KG will take us there. I've never seen the guy so active ont he floor like a mad man when he's on the floor. The difference between last season and this season is KG can take a rest and our players keep us in the game instead our players blowing a 15 point lead while KG is on the bench. We ready 4 war!

about 2 minutes to go & we're up, 109-106... here's where we find out if anything has changed from last year. C'mon!!

Edit: 2-0! 112-109... KG cashed in with 27/15 and got help from a bunch of people tonight, including Smith, Davis, & James. Great win!

no way we do that...this team is not young. we have veteran players all around the board. they've been around long enough to know not to get too cocky. with all the veteran leadership it goes well for our team. I mean a great like Garnett to keep their heads in the game at all times. you have Trenton Hassell who you know will tell you straight up that you have to keep your head straight and not do stupid **** outside of what we really needs to be done. we have the pieces, they've all been down that road. Garnett, Trenton, Davis, James and Blount. Name one player out of that starting roster that hasn't gone down on that long haul through a season. DEFENSIVELY SOUND, OFFENSIVELY EXPLOSIVE AND GOOD FREE THROW SHOOTING. WE HAVE TO STAY WITH THOSE STRENGTHS AND WE'RE NOT THAT BAD OF A REBOUNDING TEAM AS PEOPLE THINK AND COULD MAKE POSSIBLE TRADES BUT IT BETTER BE A SMART ONE IF WE DO ONE. I FEEL LIKE PEOPE DON'T SEE THIS AS A TEAM THAT COULD CONTEND. AND ANOTHER THING, WHEN DID TIM DUNCAN BECOME THE BETTER PLAYER THAN GARNETT?? ****ING RIDICULOUS THERES PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT DUMB ****.

AND ONTOP OF THAT FOYE PLAYED ONLY 8 MINUTES LAST NIGHT, GOD...

Thats the only thing wrong with this season, Foye's minutes. But were 2-0 so Im fine with it. Craig Smith produced well and thats where we really need help, up front.

Craig Smith has that hook shot and nobody's going to stop that. He could be a legit 15 point scorer this season if what he's shown so far is what it's all about. I love this guy. Maybe not this season though.
