Still believe JJ Barea can be an effective player off the bench in this league. Just has to be in the right situation
Zimmer says he held a team meeting today to address errors on special teams. Wants to clean those up
Zimmer on Barr: loves the way he studies. But "it's only been 8 games so we'll hold off on the Canton votes for a while"
Chad Greenway on Everson Griffen: "He made some plays that guys simply can't make. ... There's plays he makes that are near impossible."
Sharrif Floyd: "we were just tired of losing."
Btw, JJ and GR3 both practiced with Wolves this afternoon at Target Center
Shorthand on Wolves' decision: Flip wanted him for specific role, but JJ not willing to accept not playing nightly so they mutually agreed..
Incredible play by Anthony Barr.
Sure, why not?
Why is the clock still runnin?
Fixed: Worst D in the league and you kick on 4th and short twice. Not showing much confidence in the offense right now
That last tweet with video link, btw, should have said "win over Bulls" not "Bulls' win," i know who won, just sloppy wording
Wolves waive Brady Heslip. Don't expect final roster spot decision until the Monday afternoon deadline
Nothing new on Rubio talks. Will repeat: 4/$48M won't get it done + can see that 48 go up when Taylor becomes more involved. No on 5-yr max.
Anybody who thinks this Wolves team is going back to a 20-win season or worse...I just don't see it
So what's your final roster move, Wolves Nation?
Another win for the Wolves tonight. Seeing some things to build on over the last four games
This is the wolves' first four-game preseason winning streak since they finished 2001 by winning five straight
JJ leads Wolves back in 4th, they win 113-112 over Bulls in St. Louis
Bulls 91, Wolves 83 after 3 quarters in St. Louis
Rose goes to bench w/ 24 pts on 11-18 shooting. Looks pretty much like the Derrick Rose I once knew
I have nothing to base this on but intuition & common sense, but I predict Wolves sign Ricky to a 4-yr deal worth $50-52M by Friday
Rubio scores on layup to end 1st half, has 12 points and 4 assists in 14 minutes and game is tied at 64 at intermission
Ronny Turiaf getting some action here in 2nd qtr of a game tied at 44
Bud, Bennett, Mo all in game now with Brewer and Dieng
Wolves score 31 points in first 9 minutes vs. Bulls, St. Louis wise guy calls for Thibodeau to "put in Pippen"
Gorgui's first sub in for Pek here with Wolves leading 31-21 late in 1st
Thad's got 9 pts already and Wolves lead Bulls 19-14 early
Interesting tidbit: When discussing roster decisions, Flip points out GR3 is on 1-yr deal & could get offer sheet & be gone next year
We've got some real NBA lineups tonight. Bulls are starting Rose, Hinrich, Noah, Gasol, Dunleavy
Flip sent a message w/ lineup guy tonight down to Thibs advising Wolves will open w/ play "93." That's an old Bill Musselman play
Wolves will start Ricky, KMartin, Brewer, Thad and Pek
Flip confirms pre game: Wiggins and Shabazz won't play vs Bulls
One last Game Day in St. Louis, just cuz it's pretty http://t.co/9YpfYhYjLi
Wolves need to submit their roster by 5 pm Monday. Flup said they'll probably take it right to wire, calls decision "very difficult"
I always love this when playing Chicago... http://t.co/jrcXvJuNKa
