play with some energy against bad teams for once... I just know we're gonna come out flat and it's gonna be a tougher game then usually, because they see Minnesota on the sched. Play hard, play D, work the paint.

Do you guys think Andrew Bynum would ever average more than 30 minutes a game this season or playoffs?

LA continues to roll here. The Wolves won't be able to score on the Laker defense; Lakers have held opponents to 90.75 ppg since ASG weekend.

How many rebounds does Kevin Love pull down? The Timberwolves (45.3 rpg) and Lakers (43.7 rpg) are the top two rebounding teams in the league. The only way the Wolves stick around is if the Lakers get dominated on the glass, which they shouldn't.

I think we lose this one due to Kevin Love dropping 100 points and 55 rebounds on us.

I think if we put Ron on Klove we could stop his streak, haha otherwise it depends on the mood of Pau and LO. If they feel like rebounding then maybe he won't get a double double.

Work the paint, play D.

I'd love to have him off the bench as a scoring punch, but defensively he's a liability. Good rebounder when he wants to be. We need help at the pg position, and backup sg.. Shannon has been beyond bad since the first month.

They held Minnesota to 45pts and the Lakers held THEMSELVES to 40... They're just missing a lot of wide open shots. 2nd half they should shoot better and they should get the ball to Drew more in the paint... Because Pau is being tentative again offensively and he's just watching on defense... Pau needs to come out more aggressively in the 2nd half.

I gotta say this, our defense in the 2nd half of the last few games has been beyond impressive. I've come to learn that we can win by playing hideous offense, because our defense has been so good lately. I actually think that's what type of team we've become... kinda like the Pistons or Spurs earlier in the decade.. we have more firepower on offense but I mean it just isn't showing at times.

Exactly what I was thinking,if the standings stay the same,I'm all for it,HCA won't do a matter against dallas,like us,they're almost better on the road.

SA could be the big fail of the playoffs if they meet memphis and OKC,I can see memphis be very dangerous in a 7 games series,and OKC (if Perk is healthy) be better than SA on a 7 games series,Perk will brutalize Duncan.

I can smell a L.A VS OKC in WCF.

Their style of play this year is different, they have just 4 vets,and very limited inside,I don't underestimate,it's just my point about the team.

Only scared thing about them is their coach,he's one hell of a coach,but we have one too.
