Then a win against the Blazers! Blazers did play 4 games in 5 nights, but still. Back to .500 again.

Love Adelman as a coach, but can we stop with the full line switches. Our bench sucks in the first place, having 5 of them out there at once is hard to watch.

Just saw a bit of the Clippers game and we were down by 8 - 10 when I checked in. I just can't get into them.

This team just does whatever they can to [PoorWordUsage] close games down their leg. 0-9 in games decided by 4 points of less. That's pathetic.

I think it has a lot to do with leaving the bench in there to long, then putting the starters back in with 2 minutes left, and they are out of sync.

I would like to see all the starters on the floor for the last 10 minutes of the game.

What a joke! 0-10

Jeepers just take care of the ball! Stupid turnovers at the end doomed the wolves.. dumb mistakes. No way they should have lost that game...

Have fun in L.A. Love. Rubio isn't panning out like Kahn made us to believe. Wolves needs another all star to compliment. Most good teams have two all stars and we have one. Rubio should average 10pts and 10assts. Well my .02

We drafted a very good PG this past draft, then traded him away. We really could use him right now.

Trade for Nate Wolters! smile

He's riding the pine on a terrible Bucks team but puts up good numbers when he plays. When the guards over there were hurt he actually did really well.

Naters gonna Nate!

I was extremely dissapointed when they got rid of Burke, he's gonna be a really good player in this league.

Rubio is a liability down the stretch. He can't shoot or make a layup so the opponents barely has to guard him. Wish they would've posted up pek in those last few times down on offense.

Rubio is hurting this squad at the end of games. I just read an ESPN article yesterday about PHX and MSP and their point differentials versus records. Phoenix has outperformed their point differential by like 4 games and Wolves have underperformed by 5. The writer was predicting Wolves win. Well, when you lose that many close games, it's a trend. 0-10 in 4 point games is a problem.

The thing about us drafting Burke this summer is that we drafted him for Utah...If we drafted for ourselves we probably wouldn't have taken Burke and screwed up the draft that way!!! haha

Rubio needs to learn that other teams watch tape and his run to the baseline and pass back is a easy play to defend!!!

Make that 0-11 for games decided by 4 points or less.

Its hard to believe actually. That little bit is what separates us from being average to very good.

We're off the schneid! It's too bad that fsn thought that annoying treasure island commercial was more important than the final possession, but I guess if we got the win that's fine.

ugly game but we did what we had to do to get the W!!! Love did his thing now we have a tough back to back against Memphis and then off to Atlanta...if we somehow get a W over Memphis that will be a good boost going to ATL

Tough loss. Randolph dominated Love down low at the end of the game and the Wolves just settled for jacking up wild 3's. Don't really understand why Rubio sat on the bench the whole 4th, he was one of the main reasons they had the huge 3rd to get back in the game.

Somebody's gotta say it: Garnett got worse rosters into the playoffs. I know the West is deep, but at some point, Love has to guide this squad to the playoffs. 2 assists a game, his career average by the way, is not going to get it done. As gaudy as the scoring and rebounding is, he's been doing a lot of it with volume and a disregard for post defense in favor of rebound positioning.

Yes the bench is weak, but so is the Blazers and Warriors bench.

I'm getting sick of the excuses. Every week on talk radio, the hosts are expecting this Wolves win streak because so and so is back, or the schedule gets easier for a spell. And yet it's win one, lose one.

I know this season is pretty much a loss, as all the ones before it, but the Wolves are discussing trades for Miller, Prince, Allen, for JJ, Budinger, ad some other filler to get it done. I am not sure if this really helps the Wolves out at all in getting into the playoffs, but it does get rid of JJ, and a bad contract in Budinger, that has been injury prone recently.

    • Thanks for the info, I will give them a call.
    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season. 
    • I agree with you 100%. If it were me who had the permission to hunt I would approach things differently but when my son is involved I would back down and use it as a learning lesson. I would however tell the lady that your son is not going to be hunting her land and the exact reason why. If it were my land, I would want to know.
    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
    • Dang, I just moved Duff higher on the LIKE count!  😕
    • Beisswengers Hardware in New Brighton.  Top sales of Honda Gens and excellent service. Beisswengers
    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged.
