The Timberwolves had a chance to pull off the upset. Turnovers in the fourth quarter is what really killed their chances. Hopefully they can make some adjustments and even the series heading to Minnesota. Winning Game 2 is easier said than done with how well James Harden has been playing all year. He had 44 points tonight.

Question is...if a player refuses to play for a coach that is basically basketball royalty (5 titles) and soon to be the Olympic coach - can you really trust that player long term?

I hink they have a good shot. Westbrook is Westbrook, that guy has no off switch. It's amazing that at 29 he shows no slowing down at all.

Minnesota has to feel good about their chances. They had a very good shot. I was watching Rose and he was very good, the way he moved was almost like the Rose of old.

The only way i see the pacers having a chance to win this series is if they win both games in Indy. If the series is 2-2 headed back to Cleveland then they have no shot.

No doubt. Butler seems to have a strange affection for him though, so the Wolves organization may have to lose them both if they get rid of Thibs.

I'd be OK with that. Should have ditched Thibs after last year and kept Lavine.


I miss Flip....
