As a Wolves fan living in Texas, I had the chance to watch the game live. I haven't had much of a chance to read much on the game, so here are a few unprocessed thoughts on the game:
1. Ricky Rubio is a machine. He was the only man on the team who could handle the ball. Dallas rotated defenders on him, pressed him toward the end of the game, double-teamed and trapped. Yet he remained poised and played a great game. He got his hands on a lot more balls than the 4 steals reflects.
2. Wayne Ellington is our best option at SG. He played capable defense, was competent shooting, and did a nice job taking the ball to the hoop. Until Webster beats him out, he should remain our starting SG.
3. Love's pick on <insert name of small, pesky Dallas defender> that put him on the floor was huge. The guy had been pestering Rubio, and Love wanted Rubio to know that he had his back. Love had been trying to set up a hard screen for several possessions - and he got it!
We played a great game!
