I know we got down on the Wolves the last time they played the Nuggets. There are good reasons. However, I just watched that same Denver team beat the crap out of the playoff-bound Mavs. They did it the same way they beat the Wolves. They made tough shots. Specifically, Aaron Afflalo shot his ass off.
What does that mean to us? Maybe not much. But I like the idea that a team we were competitive with managed to beat one of the "lock" playoff teams the same way they beat us.
