Ding ding ding... Morant has been banged up yet still helps his team to a win as he is repeatedly bailed out by the refs. No one on the Wolves garners that respect.
Don't get me wrong... this was an extremely favorable match up for the Wolves. But I am not kidding myself to think that they could upset Memphis, the winner of GS and Denver, and likely Phoenix. It is not going to happen! This is not some plucky team that sometimes gets on a roll. Plucky teams usually win with D.
I never said Memphis would go on a run. If they win this series, they will also fold against the winner of GS and Denver. Book it. I am not giving out ribbons. I am being realistic... I am not betting on this horse nor getting my hopes up!
I don't think it's likely the Wolves make a run to the Finals either, but that doesn't change the fact that they should have won this series. At some point an unexpected favorable outcome needs to happen to a MN sports team if they are going to even play in a championship game again, rather than it always being an unexpected unfavorable outcome leading to the end of the season.
I don't want to whine about officiating. don't want the refs to decide the game - then make a bleeping shot - grab a bleeping rebound - and don't make some kamikaze drive to the basket, slam into someone, and hope the refs bail you out.
Ant looks like a superstar so far and Towns is out of control, again
