The Timberwolves jumped out to a 40-19 lead in the first quarter, and never looked back, winning tonight’s game 109-100. The scoring prowess of the two Kevins from the Minnesota Timberwolves proved to be too much for the Knicks to handle. All Star Kevin Love finished with 34 points 15 rebounds and 5 assist. And Kevin Martin was extremely efficient, going 9-12 from the field, including a perfect 5-5 from beyond the arc, finishing the game with 30 points. (He had the best +/- of any player, +26) Both Kevins were in double digit scoring by the end of the first quarter, combining for 24 points. The Timberwolves were looking to push the pace all night, running off of makes and misses from the Knicks. The Knicks didn’t help themselves, committing six turnovers; the Timberwolves took full advantage, converting on all of them, leading to 12 points off of the turnovers.
With 3:56 left in the first quarter, the Knicks were still in the game, the Timberwolves leading 19-15. The turn of the game came with Carmelo Anthony committing his second personal foul, while trying to deny Kevin Love post position. This was a start to a rough night for Carmelo Anthony, as he finished the game going 8-21 from the field, for 22 points. The Timberwolves shutdown the runner up scoring champion from the previous year, Kevin Durant, forcing him to go 4-11 from the field and committing four turnovers Friday night. Continue reading

I’m starting to get really nervous that there isn’t going to be a season this year. We’ve lost all November games and the sides aren’t even talking anymore. This is bad.
Last season was one of the best in recent memory and this season promised to be just as good if not better. In preparation of the worst I put together a list of the top 10 things I will miss the most:
10. The Timberwolves
Yes, the Timberwolves. Ricky Rubio has finally arrived, they drafted Derrick Williams with the #2 pick and they have the best rebounder in the leage in Kevin Love. Throw in complete wildcards like Beasley and Darko and I’m very intrigued by this team. They aren’t going to compete for a championship, but they might be very fun to watch. Continue reading
