Tim's Game Preview: Game 5, San Antonio Spurs


Minnesota Timberwolves (4-0) vs. San Antonio Spurs (3-1) at Target Center

A long time ago in an arena not that far away...

...it is a period of rebuilding. Timberwolves players, striking from the Target Center, have won their first victory against the evil Cuban Empire. During the battle, the Wolves managed to unveil their ultimate weapon, Ricky Rubio, a rookie point guard with enough court vision to destroy an entire league.

Pursued by San Antonio's sinister agents, Rick Adelman has the game plan that will save Twin Cities basketball and restore freedom to the galaxy...

The Minnesota Timberwolves

Love Solo


"Hokey zen religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good rebounder at your side, kid."

Rubio Skywalker


"I'm Ricky Skywalker. I'm not like anybody else. I'm here to rescue you."

Rick Won Kenobi


"San Antonio's locker room: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villany. We must be cautious."

Admiral Ackahn


"You are going to love Jonny Flynn."



"We're doomed."

Beasley Calrissian


"That thing's operational!"




Jar Jar Johnson


"Mesa called Jar-Jar Johnson. Mesa your humble servant. "

The San Antonio Empire

Darth Duncan


"Don't be too proud of this point guard terror you've constructed. The ability to make a bounce pass is insignificant next to the potential of the Spurs."

Greedo Parker


He definitely shoots first.

Grand Manu Tarkin


"Wolves fans are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that's left of their kind."

Boba Jeff


"This time, we will get them all."

Count DeJuan


"Kevin Love, you have fought gallantly. Worthy of recognition in the archives of the Hall of Fame. Now...it is finished."

Emperor Popovich


"And now, young Rubio...you will die."

My Prediction: Timberwolves 103 - San Antonio Spurs 92

Timberwolves' Record: 5-0
