    The Game for all the Marbles today 4/11/18 against the Nuggets...

    What kind of game do you need to see from Wiggins to stay patient with him for longer?

    Wiggins can't reverse 4 years of crap in 1 game. Sorry.

    Some of this is managements fault. They paid him, which set me off entirely. At this point, barring Wiggins smashing all prediction models, he simply won't be liked in MN at any point. Hell even if he becomes a league average player eventually, his utter underachieving here will just burn.

    Huge mistake, is what it is, and we have a staff that features him still. I took a dump with potential this morning, perhaps that will get me paid..

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Ya wiggins can't do much in one game lol. I actually think maybe we will see the good version of Andrew tonight? Fully engaged like when we play the cavs. Maybe moreso hope than expect lol.

    Wonder if nuggets will attack towns early to try and get him in foul trouble. Butler is hopefully ready to go all out too.

    So un-Minnesota of them to win that game...


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    I didn't watch (without cable until 4/22), but great to see them close out such a big game.

    Sure we will get smoked by Houston, but the experience will be good for the team.

    Jokic was eating KAT alive with 35 pts in the first 3 and a half quarters, but when Taj was put on Jokic the difference was evident. In the last 4 minutes of regulation and all of OT, Taj held Jokic Scoreless.

    because Gibson knows that you can't just let Jokic catch and look. KAT gets lazy, you can't guard everyone the same. Jokic is amazingly skilled, but also turns it over if you are able to fluster him with pressure. Jokic will adjust over time (like Dirk did for example), but if you put a guy big enough to bother, and get him inside the space of Jokic so he can't turn and look to shoot/pass, you can clamp him down easily.

    Biggest problem I always have with Thib's, is he NEVER makes in game adjustments. Kind of shocked he made one with the switch.

    I'm almost certain we lose that game without Taj - how good was he to close out!?

    I actually didn't think Towns' D was that awful. Like it wasn't great, but I thought he defended him okay - Jokic just seemed to be hitting everything.

    In any respect, glad we're in! It was a good team effort to close out.
