    I dont know if Minn is that bad but the energy level sure seems tons better

    Some of both. Minnie is terrible. The best things about watching the T'Wolves is Jefferson and Love.

    We better get TJ or Murphy in this game. We might just win it.

    Meh, I'm not. Had he had a choice, we wouldn't see this lineup, injuries just didn't give him many options.

    Now, if he continues to go with the winning lineup once everyone returns, then I'll give him some props.

    I still think Brandon Rush could become a great player. He just needs a coach who can get through to him, I don't think he respects O'Brien very much. I mean, I have nothing to back that up, but he misused Rush greatly in his rookie year, it would have been frustrating.

    If I'm the coach in the position we are in now with injuries, I tell Rush to score at least 20 points, I don't care how many shots he takes to do it, just that he does it. If he doesn't do it. I tell him that if he doesn't, he won't play for the next 3 games.

    I think that would force him to be agressive and over the course of a few games might even help his confidence grow. Obviously not a great strategy for winning games, but in the long run, a confident Brandon Rush is much more valuable than 2-3 wins we probably wouldn't have gotten anyway.

    As much as I'm enjoying this game, I can't help but think this will be bad for the longterm. But then again, A.J. Price is happening.

    AJ Price is the best PG on this team. This is only a bad thing if the coach insists on starting and playing the more expensive vets big minutes. If Murphy comes back and is put right back in the starting line-up...and we proceed to go on another losing streak....I might not check back until the draft.

    The Pacers are terrible, but the T'Wolves are terrible x 3. The Pacers are playing well, but they T'Wolves are helping a team who has lost 8 straight look good.

    Yeh, with Troy and TJ we'd probably have at least 90 points at the half...

    I agree it would be great if JOB told Rush to go out and score 20 points a game. But there is only going to be so many shot for him to take. He just has to knock down those open threes. He does need to be more aggresive, and when is three isn't falling take it to the rim. If it takes coach to motivate him to take shots then go to it. But he it has to come from him at some point to be aggresive and motivate himself. Maybe in time we will see it.

    What were the comments O'Brien supposedly made after the last game re: TJ and the point guard situation? Denari made a passing reference earlier. Did anyone hear any elaboration on that, or other comments on the seeming demotion?

    I was thinking the samething.

    Price has 7 points, 3 rebs, 5 asts, and a steal.

    I fell asleep before the game and just woke up and heard them say the Pacers are ahead by 28. I'm scared. Am I in a coma?
