The first priority for the Wolves should be a true center then a shooting guard. Wess Johnson looks lost so far at the number 2 spot and he needs to transition from his natural position small forward if he wants to succeed in the NBA. Darko is garbage.
Overall a good game tonight. Rubio was driving the lane very well to dish out those assists. Williams played almost 31 minutes.
i had the wolves/cavs game on the whole game, didnt really overly watch it but i caught some parts of it. noticed once again how ridiculous rubio's passing is, though he came down the ...court i guess, had an easy lay up and then somehow passed it up, and fired a 5 foot pass at love which almost broke the guy's nose.
he REALLY likes to pass.
Was at work so missed the game and will so again tomorrow too. Sounded like the shots weren't going in the end. Looks like they have put Wellington in the number 2 while they moved Johnson to the small forward position and results are the same. Thought his game will improve a little going back to his natural position. Guy is probably pressing too much.
On the side note what a boring BCS national championship game. * yawns *
Great comeback against the Bulls runs out of gas....the first quarter was UGLY
Well at least the 2nd and 3rd quarters were fun to watch and show the potential of this team. Liked the fact that Adelman sat Darko most of the game; Randolph and Tolliver had some quality minutes last night and the Wolves seem more athletic on both ends of the court when Darko is not in the game. Ridnour and Rubio had great games. Barea looked good in limited minutes as well. Williams looked lost and timid last night.
My guess is Rubio will be in the starting lineup for Friday, and Ridinour will be shuffled over to the 2 guard. He will be undersized there, but he is a decent enough shooter and is a solid defender so he should be able to succeed there. Darko is going to start for the time being, and I am fine with it. After all, he only plays about 15-20 minutes a game, and its not about who starts, its who finishes.
So the lineup will look like this, at least until Beasly comes back:
PG: RubioSG: RidinourSF: WesPF: That Love GuyC: Darko
Michael Wilbon of ESPN praising Ricky Rubio, and there is another pretty good basketball player that knew Rubio was going to be good from the start.
