    November 3rd through December 1st

    Through 10 games (played all 10 really but the first one was simmed...thanks wife and kids ;) ) Minnesota is 5-5. Its been a roller coaster first 10 games as the Timberwolves were blown out vs New York and at Denver. Then they hit their stride it seemed. Wins over Indiana, Houston, Miami and Detroit had them off to a 4-2 start. But reality hit in as they lost 3 in row before pulling out an OT win at Golden State.

    Kevin Love has been the man. He is averaging 23.3 points and 10.3 rebounds. Brandon Roy has been a creator on offense, averaging 20.3 points shooting 43% from 3 point range. Everyone else has chipped in but nobody else is averaging over 10 points a game. PG Ricky Rubio is leading the team in assists, averaging 7.5 a game.

    This team needs to find an inside presence. While Love is great, he can't do it all and feels more comfortable on the perimeter on offense. Look for the Wolves to hit the trade talks in search of a down low force on offense to balance out the 3 point shooters they already have.

    Kevin Love goes for 50 points and 14 rebounds as the Wolves beat the Warriors in OT. Love hit the game tying 3 as time expired. Finally, we finished a game. The last loses the Wolves had the lead late in the 4th but were unable to close it out. Brandon Roy chipped in with 24 points in win.
