No more spell check madness for this Timberwolves fan!

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been doing some mid-season rebuilding. We just made a big trade with the Boston Celtics that included Wally Szczerbiak. I am glad I won’t have to stress over the spelling of his name in this blog anymore, but I hate to see us lose a leading scorer.

Griffin On The Job

It really started to look like the Minnesota Timberwolves were going to pull off a win in the fourth quarter of their game against the Indiana Pacers. They had struggled throughout the past three quarters but surged with energy in the final minutes. The Pacers fought hard as time ran out but it wasn’t enough. This wasn’t the Wolves best game defensively, but I liked seeing Eddie Griffin working hard under the net for an impressive fourteen rebounds.

Wolves Win over Nuggets and Bulls

The Timberwolves have had a mediocre season but looked great in their games against the Denver Nuggets and Chicago Bulls. It is hard to believe that we have gone on such large losing streaks this season but the wins still give me hope. Kevin Garnett got a double-double and Wally Sczcerbiak scored 28 points in our win against the Nuggets. It was a game that showed we have the ability and talent to win, yet having the skill and using it are two different things. We have about half the season left and I would like to see this team turn it around.

Marco Lights Fire Under Wolves

The Dallas Mavericks played their worst game of the season against our Minnesota Timberwolves this week. They scored only 78 points and played terrible defense. Marco Jarik was playing aggressively and scored 22 points. He didn’t play very well in the two losses this weekend but he finally broke out of the funk he was in and produced well in the second half of the game against the Mavericks. His energy fed to the other players and they followed their point guard’s lead playing with power and pressure. Sczcerbiak and Garnett both felt Marco was focused and a big part of their win over the Mavs.
