On the Bus... any questions for a few mins

For those more mathetmatically inclined than me...what kind of PER is this for Giannis A's stat line: 0 for 7, 1 pt, 8 TOs, 4 steals
Both Flip and AB said his 8 mins played wasn't due to that knee. Both said maybe it was back to backs that left him w/out much energy
Wolves 80, Bucks 67 after three quarters here in Milwaukee
That kooky Bucks fan section is serenading JJ with "It's a Small World After All" while he's at the foul line
Bucks get within 53-47 at the half. Budinger has 15 for Wolves, Jabari 12 for Bucks

Wolves off to early 8-1 lead here in Milwaukee
In case you wondered...I asked Flip tonight if he knows 3-point shots are worth more than 2-pointers: "I'm aware of that," he said
I can finally answer this after receiving question after question game after game so far this preseason. YES, game is on TV -- FSN -- tonite
Tentative Wolves starters: Rubio, Shabazz, Chase, Pek and Thad
Veterans Brewer, Martin, Ronny & Mo won't play tonight on 2nd half of back to back.no Wiggins (bruised butt) either
"Sometimes (former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee) would saunter by your desk and say encouraging things like, 'Don't f*ck it up.' "
I have a new proposal to curb the scourge that is tanking: No team with a liberty bell can win the lottery.
Clearly part of "unintended consequences" reason is some teams being hurt who weren't tanking and were just plain bad (see: Bucks last year)
Owners clearly not ready to make a significant change to lottery system. Will still examine the issue going forward.
NBA board of governors elects Glen Taylor chairman of the board
Gonna tweet this & duck: When asked after it took 8 3s to Pacers' 24, Flip said last year's team was last in NBA & took way too many
Flip postgame said Wiggins didn't play because his butt swelled up after Sunday's fall and likely won't play tomorrow vs Bucks
It's a final: Wolves 107, Pacers 89. Bennett scores 17, Rubio 16, Mo 13, Bud 11 and KMartin 10
