Houston (17-20)

Yes indeed....we all saw that coming....

Oui, oui and thrice oui!!
If nothing else, a display (like last night's), shows the respect that the players have for their fans and for themselves. Yes we can all say that we played the Rockets at, arguably, their lowest point of the season and on the second night of a back-to-back but let's get real...they have got a ways to go before they are entitled to start complaining....try losing over half of your active roster......go ahead, try that......then we'll listen to you.

The Timberwolves fans who gathered at the Target Center for the game were given a performance high on guts and determination...anchored by Andrei Kirilenko (who played 42 mins) and boosted by massive efforts from newcomers Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson.

Looking ahead, if the Wolves can pick a path towards the beginning of February and somehow be at 0.500 then they have a long run of home games. It's strange to be talking in such a positive tone when you consider what is occurring as regards the roster but basketball is a funny game and who would have imagined Portland and Houston falling into such deep tailspins at this juncture?

Strange too what winning can do for a team......obviously we are not going to get ahead of ourselves and there's a tough match up with Atlanta ahead tomorrow but when you see how Gelabale manned up on Harden you feel he might unsettle Korver who is shooting well this season. I'll talk more about Atlanta in a preview later, for now lets just enjoy that Timberwolves victory and how significant it may be in weeks to come.

Peeking above the parapet now....well done Wolves players and staff for sealing the "W" in extremely difficult circumstances.....shouldn't have doubted you.....heh!
