Sky is the Limit for T-Wolves
"Man, it feels good," said point guard Sebastian Telfair, smiling in his locker room chair after the game. "It feels so good to win I don't even need no Tylenol right now."
And in the spirit of positivity, let me give you a few reasons why the Timberwolves season has nowhere to go but up:
1. As the Star Tribune article points out, nine times the Wolves have led or been tied going into the fourth quarter and have lost. This time they toughed it out and avoided the Warriors' late surge. This is a sign of growth from this young team.
2. Ryan Gomes is putting in solid minutes at the 3-spot, averaging 16.6 points and 6.7 rebounds in January, completely camoflauging the fact that Kevin McHale drafted a glorified Ndudi Ebi (Corey Brewer) with the 7th pick in the draft.
3. Gerald Green will boost team morale by winning the all-star dunk contest. One of the little known David Stern conspiracies is that for the past few years, he has ensured that the dunk contest winner comes from the worst team in the league at the time: Josh Smith (Hawks), Nate Robinson (Knicks), Gerald Green (Celtics), and now...Gerald Green.
Ain't no stopping them now.
