Half-assed preview: Hornets @ T-Wolves

Published: November 18, 2006

Kind of strange not having a Hornets game for two days, but the players definitely earned the rest. The Detroit game on Wednesday wrapped up a stretch of nine games in fifteen days. That's tough enough without six of those being actual road games, one being played in New Orleans, and the other two in Oklahoma City. Yeah, they've been travelling more than LeBron James.

Anyways, today our fresh-legged Hornets are in Minneapolis to take on the T-Wolves. Game time is 7pm at what I'm presuming is still called the Target Center.

It's a picture of Mark Blount bleeding

Depending how you look at it, this may or may not be the best time to play the T-Wolves. The good news is that they just played in Cleveland yesterday, hence we get them on the tail end of a back-to-back. The bad news is that the Cavs blew them out, 92-76, so if Minnesota are anyway proud, they'll be looking to redeem themselves today.

Or, maybe the Timberwolves just suck, so there is no bad news? I don't know.

The facts tell us that they are 3-5 on the season and 2-1 at home. Their opponents to date have a combined 31-21 record.

Kevin Garnett has been busy doing his thing to the tune of 22 and 11 per game. Mike James' ego has been chipping in about 15 and 5 dimes a night, while Ricky Davis is shooting like a donkey en route to 13ppg. Actually, if you just look at the individual stats, nobody on that team looks impressive besides KG.

The Hornets will be without David West, though hopefully he'll be back healthy when Miami visit the Ford Center on Tuesday. Tyson Chandler is expected back in the starting lineup today, sans a tooth. Marc Jackson might be back, too, but nobody's real sure about that. None of it really matters anyway because Hilton Armstrong and Brandon Bass are playing like their daddies didn't love them.

FYI: The T-Wolves will be in Oklahoma City next Friday for a re-match, so there's that. There's a few links you might find interesting at the bottom of this post, so there's that, too.

All that's left to say is everyone should go flood Darnell Mayberry's blog with comments demanding more posts. It's been a whole damn week!
