Nearing Unwatchable

The best thing about last night's game was that FSN spent a large chunk of the half time program talking about the Twins' awesome new alternate home uniforms.  Watching the first few minutes of the 3rd quarter, all I could think about is that there is more to talk about with the new baseball unis than there is with what is happening out on the floor at Target Center.  Is the cursive too retro or is it simply classic? Was it a good thing to get rid of the pinstripes on the road alternates?  Will the all-gray away unis look too much like pajamas? How often did the words "grass stains" get mentioned about the new whites at the press conference?  How many other teams have alternate jerseys that look better than the official ones? Will Joe Mauer look better in Minnesota or New York pin stripes? 

As for the Wolves...

It was mentioned in the game thread that I could probably use the Dallas game wrap as a fill in for pretty much every game that has happened since.  Not enough talent, too many bench players playing too many minutes, an injured key player, and a rookie point guard who doesn't appear to be close to grasping what he needs to be doing out there.  Wash, rinse, repeat. 

For those of you who want the details about how a lethargic team of 2nd round picks beat up on the Wolves, here are the Four Factors:

 

Pace Eff eFG FT/FG OREB% TOr
Houston 93.0 104.3 50.0% 7.8 42.9 22.6
Minnesota 90.3 48.1% 10.1 30.0 23.7

 

Here is the Game Flow

Here's all you need to know about any take-aways from this game: The Wolves' big 3rd quarter run to briefly take the lead consisted of a rotation of Ramon Sessions, Sasha Pavlovic, Damien Wilkins, Oleksiy Pecherov, and Nathan Jawai.  Outside of Sessions (who seems to be outplaying Jonny Flynn by a large margin quite a bit these days) who do you hang your hat on in that group?  Watching these games is like going to Target Field to root for Denard Span surrounded by the St. Paul Saints.
