This Lockout is just Dirt off my Shoulder

TIMBERWOLVES 106, SPURS 76: Given the results of Sim Season to date, this surely would have been a game I sought out on League Pass. Minnesota had won three in a row and five of six with its young, exciting roster. The T-Wolves welcomed the old dogs into the Target Center, the ancient but still formidable Spurs. Derrick Williams capped a 12-2 run that left Minny up 28-14 early in the second. Cory Joseph scored on consecutive possessions for the Spurs, but the Kevin Love scored twice during an eight-point surge, and the Timberwolves found themselves up by 18 points. Folks, the rout was on. Soon thereafter, Michael Beasley scored three times in a row and the T-Wolves led 45-20. They led by as many as 32 and cruised in with the shockingly easy victory to improve to 6-2 on the season. Love led the way with 24 points and 11 rebounds, but check out this line from Ricky Rubio--nine points, 10 assists, three steals and four blocked shots. Minny outrebounded San Antonio 55-34, grabbed more than 40 percent of its own misses and outscored the Spurs 30-16 in the paint. Wow.
