I only saw the last half of the game, but it seemed like a different team than the one that lost three lackluster games last week. What a finish! To hold on when the Warriors made a big run and manage to pull out a win was great! Wes Johnson saved it for them with the block and rebound. I think his performance in the Rookie All-Star game gave him a little confidence boost!

Go Wolves!

A nice win. It goes to show what can happen when the Wolve's apply themselves for more than just short periods of time. Johnson seems to be playing with more confidence since the rookie-soph. all star game. Beasley and Love both played with more intensity on the defensive end.

On the downside, has anyone seen Darko? It is telling that when the game is on the line, the Wolve's go "small".

Steph Curry showed once again that the Wolve's made a grievous mistake when they took Rubio and Flynn at 5 and 6. Don't tell me that "he didn't want to come here". Last I checked, the options were to go where you are drafted, go overseas (yeah, right!), or don't play pro basketball. Had he been drafted here, he would have played until the end of his rookie contract, and perhaps beyond. Who knows, he may have enjoyed it enough here to re-up when the time came.

Somebody will no doubt tell me that hindsight is 20/20, which is wrong as it is infinitely better than that. My point is that many of us felt that Curry should have been the pick. We were right, Kahn was wrong. Before you tell me to deal with it, rest assured that I am.

I agree with everything you said. One of the things that is interesting about the NBA is that Wes and/or Tolliver would have been called for a foul on Ellis had it not been in the last minute of the game. MLB and the NFL pretty much call things the same the whole game, unlike the NBA. But yes, it was a very nice win, with much more effort than we normally witness. Hopefully they can keep the effort level up.

Great win! Stephen Curry, what a shooter! Wow.

Great job, Love! Somehow I get the feeling you won't be staying in MN after your contract's over.
