Heartened to see a great turnout for former AP buro chief Dave Pyle's funeral. Further testament to what a great guy and boss he was.
Not that it means anything but interesting that when I've played ESPN lotto game Wolves have come up with Okafor at No. 4 a few times
Stewart shoulda dunked that
I'm watching Wild-Blues playofff hockey & wondering where Cliff Ronning, Bernie Federko and Dave Richter are. Doesn't show my age, does it?
One step count. Always looking up.
You all doubted the Twins. Just took two straight from AL champs
Vikings:"We look forward to Adrian re-joining the Vikings."
NFL has reinstated Adrian Peterson.Commissioner says he has to continue counseling and adhere to personal conduct policy or risk banishment
There goes the no-hitter for Vargas. Dozier with a leadoff single in the second.
Flip is headed to NBA meetings in NYC and a weekend wedding and then off to Europe for scouting
There goes the no-hitter for Milone. Moustakas with a one-out single in the first.
Another long season at Target Center is over. Thanks to all for your follows, questions and interactions all season. Really enjoyed it
Did You Know: those young Wolves finished 8th in road attendance this season, 18,000 average and 94.2 percent of capacity
I reminded my colleague that he once told me Shaq was 100 pounds overweight and that Laettner would be better pro player
A colleague of mine is convinced the Wolves are going to take Kaminsky with their lotto pick. Anyone care to guess who?
I'm glad season's over but it didn't end w/out some heartbreak: Flip tonight told me he didn't love me. Talk about having your bubble burst
First-round: Warriors-Pelicans, Rockets-Mavs, Clips-Spurs, Blazers-Grizz in West, Hawks-Nets, Cavs-Celtics, Bulls-Bucks, Raps-Wiz in East
What does the scoring title mean to you, Russ? "Sh--. Doesn’t mean nothing. Good job. Hurray. I’m at home. Watching other teams play.”
It's a final: Thunder 138, Wolves 113
Kevin Martin with 29 tonight. May be finished for the game. Quietly had a very good season for the Wolves when he was healthy.
Thunder 105, Wolves 85 after three quarters at Target Center
The Thunder hung 76 on the Wolves in the first half. Westbrook with 34, 6 reb, 4 assists. He's a baaaad man.
Thunder 76, Wolves 54 at the half. Westbrook has 34, Kevin Martin 24 already
James Harden will need 1,321 points tonight to pass Westbrook for the scoring title
Westbrook's got 322 and Thunder leads Wolves 72-49 late in 1st half, but will it matter?
Pelicans lead Spurs 63-47 at the half
The 47 points allowed in the first quarter ties a franchise record for the Wolves
Westbrook has 23 of those 47 points and Martin has 17 of the Wolves' 29 after a quarter here
Westbrook punctuates a 23-point 1st qtr with a 3. He went 7-8 FG, 7-8 FT, 2-2 3s. Thunder lead Wolves 47-29. Will it matter?
OKC scores 47 1st quarter points, lead by 18 already. Too bad he can't barter some points to the Spurs tonight
Scott Brooks joked pre-game that he's got a pager that will buzz him w/ SA-NO scoring updates. Bad news for him so far: Pelicans lead 34-19
Westbrook is a one-man wrecking crew. Steal and tomahawk dunk for 18 points in 10 minutes.
Thunder lead 37-24 late in 1st qtr at Target Center
Russ has 16 on 4-5, 7-8 FT in 9 minutes.
Well ... Ball's in your court, Pelicans.
Contrary to reports elsewhere, OKC's Scott Brooks has not come out tonight wearing a black suit and silver tie
Kevin Garnett has come out to sit on the bench for the finale
Starting lineup No. 30 for the Timberwolves tonight. That's right. I said 30.
Flip on the summer: "Our big emphasis with our team is going to be 3-point shooting, working with our players to extend their range."
Correcting a tweet from earlier today: Wiggins will play for Canada in August Olympic qualifying & not July's Pan AM games
Flip: "I would like to coach a full team." Didn't fully commit to coaching next year but sure looks like that'll be the case.
Flip on tonight: "We’d like nothing better than to have Oklahoma City go golfing with us tomorrow." Some nice courses in these parts, btw
Analytics devotees rejoice: Flip said perhaps biggest emphasis in off-season will be working on 3-point range with players.
Martin will play tonight, Bennett will try to give them another available body vs OKC
OKC coach Scott Brooks is a San Antonio fan for the night. "I have the jingle: Go Spurs, Go!"
Zach surprised me today when he said he's open to playing in Vegas this summer. Said he loves to play and that pace is his kind of style
I think I misunderstood Wiggins this am. He said he'll play for Canada in August, that'd be Olympic qualifier, not PanAm. Will clarify 2nite
LaVine on Wiggins: "I don’t want to hear anybody saying there is anyone close to him. He had the best rookie year by far."
LaVine: getting stronger is priority No. 1 this summer. Eating right, maturing. Oh, and "Just lifting. I’ve never really actually lifted."
Btw, Wiggins said at shoot this morning that he will play for Canada this summer at Pan Am Games in Toronto
Wiggins says he will be able to get enough rest this summer before national team plays to let his body recover from NBA grind
Andrew Wiggins says he is definitely playing for the Canadian national team this summer
