#Twolves coach Flip Saunders on roster, poised for 8th lineup in 12th game: "As long as you are breathing, you are going to get a chance."

Jon Krawczynski

Mike Malone said tonight is scariest game of Kings 4-game trip. Young team sees wolves missing 4 starters. He's concerned

Darren Wolfson

Surprised Mollie went w/ Allen. But have heard good things. Just was told by a few that previous MLB coaching experience was huge deal.

In a matchup with DeMarcus Cousins, #Twolves coach Flip Saunders' message to center Gorgui Dieng: "Survival."

Jerry Zgoda

My colleague @BloodStrib is covering tonight's Kings game, so follow him for updates

Jon Krawczynski

One of first guys on the floor for SAC pregame warmups: DeMarcus Cousins

Darren Wolfson

Better job for stathead @KeithLeventhal. Michigan was ranked in at least one poll in '05 when #Gophers won in Ann Arbor. I have a headache.

Darren Wolfson

Coach and AP polls get funky. Best way to put today into context: 1st win on the road vs. a B1G AP top-25 team since 2000 (OSU). #gophers

Darren Wolfson

#Gophers end a 16-game road losing streak vs. ranked B1G opponents. 1st such win in 11 yrs. Today's win surely vaults them in bowl picture.

Darren Wolfson

Halftime deficit stat meaningless now. Kill has his signature win. Division play is neat. Sets up biggest #Gophers game of my lifetime.

Jon Krawczynski

Impressive comeback from the Gophers. Wasn't sure they could comeback from 14 down. Win and they're in.

Darren Wolfson

Obligatory: #Gophers 1-24 under Kill when down at the half. Glass half-full: 1-2 in last 3 such scenarios.

Being a part of the @StJude Give Thanks Walk at @mallofamerica this morning was so wonderful! Thank u for having us. http://t.co/KeYyNjBah9

Darren Wolfson

Been 11 years since the #Gophers have beaten a ranked B1G team on the road. Huskers ineptitude + injuries = streak truly should end today.

Darren Wolfson

#FollowSaturday: @joe_schmit + @jwmonical. Both helping w/ Ch. 5 duties today as this dolt attempts to get a voice back. Laryngitis sucks!

Jon Krawczynski

I don't think Pop took any joy in hammering a weakened Wolves team. Coaching fraternity means a lot to him. Could tell he was conflicted

Anthony Bennett

Before the night ends , happy Birthday to my lil homie @anthonybennett .. You already know it's all… instagram.com/p/vsFhogqVSf/

Jon Krawczynski

Spurs still looking for that beautiful game they played in the playoffs last season. No need for it tonight. Pop: "It wasn't a fair fight."

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders on seven starting lineups in 11 games: "We've been in a transition phase for the last two or three weeks."

Jon Krawczynski

Popovich: "it wasn't a fair fight."

Andy Greder

Final: #Spurs 121, #Twolves 92. The most important moment likely came just off the court. Read about it soon at @PioneerPress.

Jon Krawczynski

That's a career-high 20 points for Anthony Bennett

Andy Greder

Canadian journo @DavidEbner informs me that Anthony Bennett has tied and now set a new career high with 20 points.

Jon Krawczynski

Jeff Ferguson! Do it, coach! RT @KFAN1003: END of 3Q: Totino-Grace 21, Eden Prairie 14. KFAN.com/listen.

Jon Krawczynski

#Spurs 91, #TWolves 62 after 3. Spurs just trucked Minny that quarter. Parker with 28, Green 15. Wiggins has 14.

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine is just frantic out there. Kid needs to take a deep breath. Happens to lots of rooks

Jerry Zgoda

Wiggins has 9 of his 14 points here in 3rd qtr, but Wolves trail Spurs 81-59

Jon Krawczynski

Nine straight for Wiggins. Asserting himself now.

Jon Krawczynski

Here comes your daily Wiggins 3rd quarter flurry

Jon Krawczynski

Muhammad (1-7, 1 reb) finding the going against Diaw, Leonard slightly tougher than Travis Wear.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs G Cory Joseph diagnosed with ankle sprain at halftime, will not return

Andy Greder

#Spurs will be without Cory Joseph (sprained ankle) for the rest of the game.

Andy Greder

#Spurs have 8-2 start to open up a 67-50 lead over #Twolves in third quarter.

Jon Krawczynski

Cory Joseph will not return with a sore left ankle. Spurs short-handed at PG.

Andy Greder

#Spurs Tony Parker was sooooo open on that last three-pointer he had time to think about if he's ever been more open. He's 3 of 3 from deep.

Andy Greder

Half: #Spurs 59, #Twolves 48. San Antonio goes on a 13-0 run to open things up in second quarter. Tony Parker leads all scorers, 23 points.

Jon Krawczynski

#Spurs 59, #TWolves 48 at half. Parker with 23 on 10-15. Spurs shooting 56%. Mo Williams has 15 for Wolves.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs 59, Wolves 48 at the half. Parker has 23 already. Mo has 15 for Wolves

Jon Krawczynski

less than 3 minutes to go in the first half and Tim Duncan just had his first shot of the game.

Jon Krawczynski

13-0 run for the Spurs, who are running away with this one. 54-37

Andy Greder

#Twolves Ricky Rubio is getting all sorts of fired up at these calls. ...

Andy Greder

Five buckets in paint thus far. RT @ Jon Krawczynski Parker is devouring the Wolves on dribble penetration.

Jerry Zgoda

Tony Parker w/ 17 so far. Spurs lead 41-37 with 7 minutes left in 1st half

Jerry Zgoda

Zach for Mo here a minute into 2nd qtr. Spurs lead 31-30

Jon Krawczynski

#Spurs 29, #TWolves 26 after 1. Parker with 13, Diaw with 9. Mo Williams with 9 and Bennett with 6 for Wolves

Andy Greder

End 1Q: #Spurs 29, #Twolves 26. San Antonio has 16-8 advantage in points in the paint. Tony Parker with 13 points on 6 of 9 shooting.

Andy Greder

This is the #Twolves' seventh different starting lineup. It's the 11th game.

Jon Krawczynski

During timeout, Ricky Rubio is sitting on the bench in the huddle and talking to players and listening to Flip. That's something right there

Jerry Zgoda

From 6-2 down, Spurs now lead 10-6 early here at TC

Jon Krawczynski

Will be interesting to see how Wiggins responds tonight with Kawhi checking him. Won't be a fun night at the office for him

Jon Krawczynski

Flip has switched Brewer on to Parker and Mo on to Danny Green

Andy Greder

#Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph checking out the #Twolves at Target Center.

Jerry Zgoda

What's the final margin tonight?

Andy Greder

Reminder: #Twolves have 10 active players against the defending champs. Starters are Wiggins, Muhammad, Dieng, Brewer and Williams.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs are starting Kawhi, Duncan, Diaw, Parker, Green vs. Wolves' Mo, Brewer, Wiggins, Dieng and Shabazz

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said his Golden Valley CC team might have been older than the one the Wolves will field tonight

Jerry Zgoda

Flip's parting words to media before game: "One of these days I’m going to come bring good news."

Jon Krawczynski

Knicks bailed out Wolves by matching up to MIN instead of dictating matchups. I might expect Pop to try a different approach

Jon Krawczynski

Flip says he's emulating Pop tonight by sitting 4 of his starters. Doubt Wolves get fined though

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said Wolves would have to pick 3 guys who can't play for next 10 days to apply for roster exception. Isn't willing to do so w/ Pek yet

Jon Krawczynski

PG Mo Williams, SG Corey Brewer, SF A. Wiggins, PF Shabazz, C Gorgui RT @mfwakefield: what's the whole starting lineup?

Jerry Zgoda

Flip tonight vs. Spurs: "We have great respect for Pop. I'm emulating Pop. I'm sitting my four guys."

Jerry Zgoda

Splitter, Mills and Bonner all out for Spurs tonight, btw

Darren Wolfson

3 of the Big 4 from the 2014 class in action tonight on @truTV. Stanford (Travis) - UNLV (Vaughn) followed by Duke (Jones) - Temple.

Andy Greder

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders said he will turn to Mo Williams, Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger to lead the "kiddy corps."

Jon Krawczynski

Brewer starting at 2 tonight in Martin's place. Will lean more on Chase Budinger as well

Jon Krawczynski

Rule is you need 3 guys out at least 10 days to get injury exception, Flip said

Andy Greder

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders said it will be a couple of days to determine if Kevin Martin's broken wrist is displaced and needs surgery.

Jon Krawczynski

Flip says they're waiting to see on Pek. If it's determined he will miss another 10 days, wolves can add a player to help out

Jerry Zgoda

Flip says Corey will start for Martin, Bud will come off bench at both 2 and 3 spots

Andy Greder

Look for Corey Brewer to start in Kevin Martin's shooting guard spot. #Twolves

Jerry Zgoda

Game night in Minneapolis: The Big Fundamental http://t.co/smrYCN9Pow

Jon Krawczynski

Pekovic will be evaluated again early next week. If outlook for him is more long-term recovery, wolves could get a roster exception

Jerry Zgoda

Hey, @1500ESPN_Reusse, what do you think of Venice, Italy's forthcoming ban on wheeled suitcases? Hope you're not headed there anytime soon

Jerry Zgoda

I've got an idea for t-shirts to be sold at the @KFAN1003 State Fair booth next August, @DanBarreiroKFAN : Respect the Curse!

Jerry Zgoda

Let's try this again: Spurs F Matt Bonner is out tonight, btw, with a virus that seems to be going around the NBA these days

Jerry Zgoda

Either that or I reverted back to about 1990 and Sacramento with my reference to "Anthony Bonner." Shows my age, I guess

Jerry Zgoda

Sorry, that was supposed to be Matt Bonner for the Spurs. I think I put my two stretch 4s together from tonight's game

Andy Greder

Not first time #Twolves Kevin Martin has played with broken wrist. Broke left one in 47-point outing in '09. He played next game, scored 29.

Jon Krawczynski

Adrian Peterson's hearing will be Dec. 2. Interesting that Goodell is not hearing the appeal himself.

Jerry Zgoda

When asked the other night about an injury exemption to sign a player, Flip said, "They don't hand those things out like candy."

Jerry Zgoda

If Pek diagnosis is longer term, there's a chance Wolves could get emergency permission to add a player w/out making a roster move

Jerry Zgoda

So what do Wolves do now? Start Brewer at the 2? Any other options?
