Minnesota 102, Dallas 98. I think our three point shooters show up, and Brewer slows Howard enough
Now, this may totally backfire on me, and Dallas wins by 10, but whatver.

As much as I want to think that we'll win tonight, I dont see it happening. I think Dirk could have a monster game against us, and it might be hard to contain him, along with everyone else on their roster.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

haha i told you guys GOmes sucks.. he is not physical enough to be in the NBA

did you guys see the lineup of
Foye
McCAnts
Miller
Love
Jefferson
it was awesome! that was by far the best lineup I've seen on a Wolves team ever!

Yes, ever! And Love is proving why he should START OVER GOMES! We should all petition McHale and Wittman to start Love over Gomes and have the lineup of
Foye, McCants, Miller, Love, and Jefferson more often!

jwin2005
11-01-2008, 09:34 PM
I am officially calling out Gomes and blaming him for this loss... he doesnt bring anything to the table, he doesnt offensive rebounds and cant make open shots when needed... he is also a reliability on defense since he is not physical which is needed to wear down a player like Nowitzi

Love is covering his butt when he comes in for Gomes.. F U C K Y O U Gomes I hate him... I wish he tears his ACL

jwin2005
11-01-2008, 09:39 PM
Why are they not taking GOmes out!

why are you telling us what the hell each play is... anyways look at how good the WOlves do when Gomes is off the floor man o man

jwin2005
11-01-2008, 10:04 PM
WITTMAN dumb A S S moves in the game
1) doesnt put in Foye in the 4th until 6 minutes left
2) Jefferson on bench for a lot of the game
3) not putting in Foye, McCants, Miller, Love, Jefferson more
4) WITTMAN F U C K I N takes out Foye becuase he shoots too much and doesnt drive then on a crucial play miller passes to Foye and he doesnt take the shot and drives it in cuz he knows WITTMAN's dumb A S S takes him out cuz he shoots

IowaAJ
11-01-2008, 10:12 PM

IowaAJ

Love hasn't played that well the only way he can score is if he gets an offensive rebound and the lead grew to 11 when Love was on the floor.

That was ugly by McCants.

game over Wolves lose

IowaAJ
11-01-2008, 10:23 PM
tough loss just couldn't execute down the stretch. We have to get it to Jefferson when we are in these situations and Foye took a terrible shot which we could of cut it to 3 or 2 if we could of scored that possesion.

IowaAJ
11-01-2008, 10:24 PM
We lose 95 to 85

Whatever man.. taking out Love for Gomes is such a DUMB A S S move its not funny at all.. Love stopped Dirk just as much as Gomes and then brings hustle and offensive rebounds on the other end which Gomes cant

I dont care.. I hope Wittman gets his *** fired soon!

I agree with that the one where he got his pocket picked by Kidd was a bad turnover.

IowaAJ
11-01-2008, 10:36 PM
so spreading out the floor with a guy who can shoot 3's when you are down by 7 and you need 3's is a dumb move. I understand you think Love is better but does Love hit the open shot when we need it I don't know yet. I know one thing Gomes has hit some big shots for us. I think bringing in Gomes was the correct move and by the way Love had 9 points and 3 rebounds. Gomes had 6 points and 5 rebounds he didn't have a good shooting night tonight but he usually is a very consistent shooter.

jwin2005
11-01-2008, 10:39 PM
I dont care my point is that the Wolves suck and they need change.. Love is a whole different player who can bring that kind of intensity on the floor

Gomes is a player who looks for his own shot and we dont need that with Foye McCants and Miller on the floor... Love attacks the boards which Gomes doesnt

Jefferson had an off night but that doesnt mean we still cant pull off a win

I blame the loss on Wittman for not knowing when to use the right players at the right time

IowaAJ
11-01-2008, 10:42 PM
were 1 and 1 you don't know if we suck. You think we stink but I think this team has a lot of talent they just have to put it all together. This was a tough Dallas played great in the 4th quarter and we lost. I think we bounce back and beat the thunder tommorow.

Tough loss.

Al Jeff had a rough night. We did a good job of containing Dirk, but we struggled against Dallas' bench.

As for the Gomes vs. Love thing, I dont understand all the commotion. We interchanged them depending on the lineup Dallas had out there, and we also changed it up to try to throw Dirk off his game a bit, and it seemed to work effectively. Having Gomes in there or Love in there didnt effect the outcome of this game, it was the sloppy play of the Wolves, and the careless possessions as well.

Wow get off Love's balls (...i'm assuming he has more than one basketball...). Gomes and Love are 2 very different players - Gomes is a team player who isn't afraid to take open shots but whose gonna do whatever it takes to help the team, but he's really undersized, while Love crashes the boards and makes really good outlet passes that people won't shut up about (really not that important). Let's see... it's 2 games into the season, oh look! if the season ended today the wolves would be in the playoffs, wow! They're so great! ...yeah. Need change? How 'bout a healthy Foye and McCants? Or a once-promising (back-up) PG who finally is starting to get it? One player doesn't win or lose games... at least not since Jordan.

thesparky33
11-02-2008, 02:22 AM
Good points, topdog.

I think the reason Wittman uses Gomes in critical times in these first 2 games, is that he's proven... he knows what he's going to get with Gomes. With Love, he is only a rookie, and we dont know him well enough to know what kind of decisions he'll make or what he'll do in certain situations.

I think as the season progresses, and even after these first two games, we are starting to see that Love already is a pretty smart player and is efficient as well, but I still understand why Wittman is putting Gomes in there over him as for now.

I definitely see Love becoming a starter before the season ends, no doubt about it.

t-wolves4ever here.

Sloppy game tonight. Turnovers killed us and transition did as well. Nobody really had a good night except for McCants which he will suck tomorrow night because he cant put 2 good games together though I still like him. Gomes vs. Love argument here is kind of stupid IMO. Love is a rookie and Gomes knows what he's doing on the floor in crunch time. Even though he might not look good at times in there, that doesnt mean we should think a rookie would do any better. Lets just move onto the next game and try to improve from our mistakes from tonight.

BTW- How did we shoot 22-24 FT's tonight after going like 11-22 the other night? Talk about weird.

yea theres dat one, the one were he gets picked by terry and the one with one second left on the shot clock...Al jerrerson did not play like him self tonight, he is a post scorer and he was trying to shoot the ball from out of his range at some points in the game...Hopefully against the thunder he plays like himself again and we get the W

That is not change. Also Derrick Rose and Michael Beasley are starting respectively on their teams (who are by far better than our team!) so explain that *** hole... I am not on his balls and I do not love him.. I just think he plays better basketball than your Gomes.. Also on ESPN they rank Love currently at #1 for rookies.. I think he deserves to be the starter.. he was pac-10 player of the year and drafted 5th... what was Gomes?

PurpleJesus
11-02-2008, 01:06 PM
yeah, Love is better than Gomes i believe, even after game one where gomes was 6-8 Love looked better. Still because of the size issue, i dont know if he should start, we would just have no size of the bench if he did. Love should be taking minutes from Gomes though, and he should be playing between 25 and 30 minutes a night rather than 15 to 20.
Wolves didnt look to bad last night, that was the Mavericks, the officials absolutely sucked though. I think they took away any chance the Wolves had to win. Foye is not a PG, I cant wait till Bassy comes back. I really want Foye to slide to the two.

Hawkeye15
11-02-2008, 01:34 PM
I do think Love should be getting more minutes. More than Gomes. I also think Foye needs to man up and start being more aggressive. And why is Miller passing up open 3's? I understand you want to involve everyone, but dude, we got you to hit those.

PurpleJesus
11-02-2008, 03:27 PM
i have no complaints about miller, his shot is going down like hes used to, but that will obviously come around. I didnt know he drove to the basket so well
