The Minnesota Timberwolves suffered a 104-100 loss in their season-opener to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but it was a fun game to watch and ultimately not all that important as the team has 65 games left during the regular season and the Thunder are one of the better teams in the NBA. The Wolves will have a chance to avenge Monday night's loss on Tuesday, however, in a game against Brandon Jennings and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Neither team picked up a victory in their first game of the season, but both proved themselves as a team worth watching. Tuesday evening's game should be no exception, either, as Jennings and Ricky Rubio could be a fun match-up to watch on the offensive end.
In general though, everything's worth watching at this point of the season -- a fact Canis Hoopus pointed out in their game preview.
As a season ticket holder for the past several seasons, I have developed a routine over the years. Around the end of the first quarter/start of the second quarter, I usually go to the concession stand and buy an order of cheese curds. The whole thing takes about 10-15 minutes in real time.
Last night, I didn't want to get up. I thought I might miss something. That's the first time I've thought that in a long time at a Wolves game. Ricky Rubio, Derrick Williams, Kevin Love and Rick Adelman have ushered in a new era for Timberwolves' basketball:
