The wolves should be able to beat the cavaliers as long as Ricky Davis gets his 20 and we keep our rebounding up. We will see more of Foye in this game and if he finally explodes...we could really have fun with this game.

Key To Win:
1. Rebounding
2. Ricky getting his 20+ points
3. Remaining to have limited turnovers like last game
4. Contain Lebron with double-teams
5. Foye exploding would help

Our team chemistry really is starting to develop...last game guys were really hyped up and giving each other pumped up. This will all help court chemistry.

Draft a big man, duh. Every year we go into the draft needing a big man, that will get us rebounds and block some shots. What do we do? Draft Guards and Centers in a forward body; draft a center!!! A legit center.

No, every year we go into the draft without a first rd draft pick... Had we not lost those 5 1st rd picks for trying to sign Joe Smith, I bet we'd have a decent center and would be a top 5 team in the West with at least 2 of those 5 picks panning out.

How can u remain so optimistic about our team? I'll admit, I was optimistic coming into the season but I haven't seen 1 thing to be excited about from this team yet. Foye only got what, 9 minutes last night vs the Cavs? And I saw a quote from Casey saying that scoring 31 pts in the second half is unacceptable or whatever... well if we were having a hard time scoring, why not put in our most explosive scorer??

Because we have all the weapons and Griffin is the answer to our Center problems. Craig Smith doesn't play a bad PF with KG at C either. This team is good. These first couple games we had some bad luck. Things will pan out. You will see. Craig Smith and Griffin together would be a great bench though if we could get another big man. It pisses me off. Stupid Blount pulling down like 3 rebounds a game.

Griffin is more of a problem than the answer... He's a good guy to have in the paint to swat a few shots away, otherwise he's wildly inconsistent.

We can rebound...**** it...Craig Smith can rebound and Blount can sometimes. Lets just wait till McCants comes back and Foye lights it up. Then we will be having a party...not that we cant in the next games.
