Just remember this about NBA announcement: Two fewer timeouts means fewer TV ads to sell
In announcing 44-minute game experiement, NBA says it's doing so to examine the flow of a shorter game
NBA just announces it will experiment with a 44-minute game for Oct. 19 Nets-Celtics. There will be 4 11-minute qtrs & fewer timeouts
Wow. NBA says it will test a 44-minute game between BKN and BOS on 10/19 to examine the flow of a shorter game.
Flip is measuring workloads for guys who played World Cup last month: JJ didn't play Fri, Ricky & Gorgui didn't practice much Saturday
Andrew Wiggins is shooting an adidas commercial at TC after practice today that will air nationally after season's start
Flip said neither KMartin nor Shabazz did much other than shoot today, he's not sure if either will play Friday in Cedar Rapids vs Bucks
Slap in the face material? Got my 1st rd of Lombardi Award balloting, and the watch list has over 100 names. Not one Gopher. Could write in.
Nice to see DT Beau Allen get meaningful snaps for the Eagles. Feel like I was just at Minnetonka HS for his college signing ceremony.
Can't confirm this completely but pretty sure Flip's parting words to his team after today's field trip: "Don't be like that."
Zimmer is flummoxed by this team. Says they practice hard and study but also remarked that he had to fine some players for being late
Zimmer might need to get stitches in his tongue. Was biting it pretty hard a few times in post game presser
Mike Zimmer: I'm the boss. Their job is to please me. Not the other way around.
here come the boo birds
Can we all just go home?
Suh is devouring this Vikings front. Wow.
Alert: We have Patterson in the backfield. Patterson IS IN the backfield
Vikings game with the team
Not sure the Lions even broke a sweat on that opening drive. Too easy.
Flip cancels practice today. Surprises team by bringing them to Vikings game today. They'll be in Jerry Kill's suite
Re: Durant's fractured foot & 6-8 wk timetable...Wolves play Thunder in preseason game next Sunday, then not again until Dec. 12 at TC
Flip's surprise field trip this morning is just another touch. You can tell he's happy & relaxed by being again what he always was, a coach
Flip called for practice at 10:30 this morning...then surprised players by cancelling it and taking em to Vikings game in Jerry Kill's suite
Jerry Kill losing his cool at the absolute wrong time. Slamming the clipboard down on turf after roughing call.
Leidner with a perfect throw there to Maxx Williams. Gophers need those plays to loosen up the D for Cobb

Wiggins visited w/ former KU mate Joel Embiid before game. “We had a dream back in Kansas and we see each other now, our dream came true.”
Anthony Bennett, by the way, is cool with the BigDaddy Canada nickname
Rubio: 8 pts (3-6), 8 assts, 3 steals, 6 TOs. In 2nd half: 6 pts 3-3, 2 st, 3 assts, 1 TO. Flip says RR still getting to know teammates
Flip also says he thinks Ricky Rubio can become an elite on-the-ball defender. They're working with him to take calculated gambles.
Flip says Wolves have to continue to work on pick-and-roll defense. He thought Bennett (13 pts, 8 rebs, 1 steal) was best player on floor
Best post-game quote of night from Wolf walking behind me in locker room, almost in my ear: "(Belch). My bad." It was, of course...big Pek
Mo Williams with 14 pts, 6 assts, 5 boards, 3-5 3s.
Rubio was 3 for 3 from the field in that quarter. 8 pts (3-6), 9 assists in 27 mins. Brewer leads way w/14
Wolves lead open an 89-79 lead after 3 quarters over Sixers
Gorgui in for Pek early -- just 2 minutes into 3rd -- after big Pek picks up his 4th foul
Ricky was 1-for-9 from field in preseason before he just made a jumper there. Wolves now lead 65-60 in third
Wiggins with a beauty of a wraparound pass to Thad for the j and then a 3 at top of arc.
Rubio with six assists in the first half, but also had 5 TOs and 0-3 FG.
IT IS WROTEN
