I was at the game and it was a really fun atmosphere. It was nice to see the wolves play 48 minutes, as opposed to the 44 or 42 minute games that we often watch.
I think Alexander Walker was the MVP. He completely shut down SGA who would have been held to well under twenty points if the refs hadn't bailed him out with a bunch of dubious calls. SGA normally torments the wolves. Tonight, he and Giddey were non factors.
Rudy has to be the clumsiest player in the league. And yet...if the wolves figure out how to use him correctly, he can be a dominant asset. He needs to swallow his pride and stop acting like he can dribble a basketball. He can't. All he can do on offense is set screens, roll to the basket, catch lobs within a foot of the rim (no further) and dunk the ball. If the wolves run 8-10 roll/lob plays from different angles a night for Rudy, he will convert 80% of them.
Rudy's defense remains solid.
Jeez, he's clumsy.
Great win tonight. On to Denver.
