    I'm pretty sure McHale all but ruled him out for the weekend. Same with Bev(although Saturday is a remote possibility). No idea about Canaan. It would be nice to at least have him for these games.

    They better be back for Golden State next Wednesday though. I at least want a shot at us winning that game.

    Minnesota's really bad right now and banged up. I know we almost lost to Philly, but in a way I think Minnesota is actually worse. Rubio, Pekovic, and Martin are out. Their one dynamic player, Young, is playing like total crap since the death of his mother. They have absolutely no offense. At least Philly has guys like MCW and Wroten who can fill up the stat sheet or get hot. If we play at half the level we did against Memphis this should be a blowout.

    Minnesota just lost to Philly and they got blown out at home by Milwaukee who we pulverized last weekend. This is a bad team. The Rockets even in their current state should win this game if they play hard and smart for 48 minutes.

    I'm a little worried about the game. They do have a lot of size and are going to be pissed off about losing to Philly. They are going to come at us harder than usual. Luckily I feel very confident in any game if it's close and Harden is in the close it out.

    Is it me or does Minnesotta seem to get injury struck in the worst way every year? I know we have it bad ourselves man man crazy how a team with so much potential be so mediocre for so long.

    I'm starting to regret buying my tickets a day ago. I'm guessing there will be a lot of people looking to unload tickets outside Target Center. I'm wondering if the arena will be even half full.

    Regardless of how bad they've been playing, we still need to take this game seriously. The timberwolves have been beat up and embarrassed and they're going to come out swinging tonight. The rockets can't go in expecting a cake walk because they might catch us off guard.

    Not sure who exactly. I was just scrolling through the NBA tumblr tag and found that. Here's the exact website with some other interesting drawings. Also one of him and AD.

    Bill Worrel has aged nicely. What are the odds that Mo Taylor is high right this minute on that show?
