Thad on Pek vs. Drummond: "It's like two grizzly bears fighting each other."
Welcome to DET, SVG: "What happened in 3rd qrtr was inexcusable. It really is. If you're a professional athlete, it was inexcusable."
When Kevin Martin heard Flip Saunders complimented his defense, K-Mart joked: "I got praised for defense? ... I think I'm gonna retire now."
Flip complimented KMartin D late in game. KM: "I got praised for defense? I think I'm gonna retire now."
surprised Martin is in and on Butler when Wolves need a stop over Wiggins, Brewer
Bad sequence for Rubio. First TO of the game then leaves Augustin wide open for 3. 80-77
Caron Butler dialing it up for the Pistons. Scored 12 straight points to cut MIN lead to 80-74 in fourth.
Pistons close 3rd with a 12-3 burst to stay around. Wolves 75, DET 65 going into 4th. Pek 15/10, Augustin 15, 4 assts
Welcome to the NBA, Andrew Wiggins. A soaring finish in traffic. Wolves lead 66-51
And you get a foul, and YOU get a foul and YOU get a foul
Pek starting to come around. Has drawn 3 fouls on Drummond in 5 minutes of 3rd period. Big 0 goes to bench w/4 PFs
Calling this game stagnant would be an understatement. Wolves with just 1 FB point. Need to speed the game up.
Wiggins a little jittery in his home debut. 0-3 in 9 minutes
Actually LaVine getting Martin, not Mo. Flip wants Williams with the rook on most occasions
Zach LaVine getting ready to make his NBA debut with Mo picking up 2 fouls
Flip was a big fan of KCP in the draft. He's off to a nice start. 8 pts on 4-6.
Joel Anthony lives!!!!
Rubio and Brewer: 4-7. Rest of Wolves: 2-11
Pekovic has traveled more times in two games than the entire league was whistled for last year, I think.
Kevin Love: 8 pts, 7 rebs, 3 assts, 2-2 3s in 9 minutes. Whew.
Wiggins with a couple nice interior passes. Both teams struggling shooting. 8-24 combined
Drummond and Pekovic in the paint. A train colliding with a bulldozer over and over again
Wow. Brewer still starts despite Kevin Martin being healthy. Interesting.
Stan Van: "Sometimes your coach doesn't do a good job like ours didn't last night and he makes you look bad on the personnel side."
Stan Van in typical SVG form tonight. Said the Pistons exec was very Unhappy with the Pistons coach last night in Denver
If any Wolves players wanted to get some early shooting on the game court, they couldn't. Vanilla Ice is rehearsing.
For those wondering: JJ's buyout was the $4.5M owed minus the $1m-plus veteran's minimum the Mavs will pay him
Everybody seems to be doing it so let me say it too: Hello, Cleveland! http://t.co/Sx1fVONhNv
Here's something to wrap your heads around, Wolves Nation: Just think how beloved JJ is in Dallas & how happy fans will be to have him back
Wow, Stubhub has tickets ranging from $760 at cheapest to nearly $2200 for Kevin Love's Cavs debut tonight! Who knew?
Everyone go to the website and vote for my son Sebastian there's only one day left and we have a chance to win. http://t.co/Z3nZveBgqW
With Rubio talks: remember, it's a negotiation. Deadlines spur action. Getting close to Friday night, but long way until we get there
Interesting Flip pointed out how Grizz put Z-Bo some on Shabazz to slow him, then mentioned how little he played last year
Wolves' bench outscored Grizz's bench 46-10. How often did that happen last year? Actually, looks like their biggest margin since 96-97
OHHHHH RUSS!!! My oh my
Sorry, I got crunched tonight and didn't get to tweet down at the end. ICYMI, Grizzlies 105, Wolves 101 final
What a stellar opener for Marc Gasol. Has all the tools in his tool box. One of my favorites to watch
Not sure why Dieng isn't in right now. He's been the difference all game for Wolves.
Didn't expect Wolves to be outrebounding Grizz 46-31. Grizz shooting 52%, but still impressive without Love
Reserves -- particularly Mo, Shabazz and A Bennett -- have brought Wolves back from 10 pts down and they now lead 87-85 with 6:44 left
Gorgui Dieng. Awfully impressive.
Gorgui has right thumb contusion, xrays negative, expected to return
Z-Bo and Gasol each has 16 for Grizz, Young has 13 and Mo 10 for Wolves
At the half: Memphis 53, Wolves 47
Dieng back on bench
Wiggins has 3 first-half fouls, Shabazz has subbed in for him,
What happens to the plan to limit Pek's minutes now?
