Love Hurt, Martin Tired, Cavaliers Fire GM Chris Grant

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

A bit of this and a bit of that for your cup of Canis.

Well, we got a lot more entertainment out of last night then I expected, so there's that.

It was good to see Rubio so aggressive offensively--understanding that he had to score to give the team any chance at all. Unfortunately, without Love or Pek, the rebounding wound up really hurting the Wolves, as the Thunder pounded the offensive glass.

And Derek Fisher.  Seriously. I wanted to stick a fork in my eye on some of those threes he made.

What else is going on today in Wolves land?

Here's Adelman's explanation for the lack of Martin in the 4th, via JerryZ:

Meanwhile, the decision for Love not to play came very late--just a few minutes prior to game time. It remains to be seen whether he will play in New Orleans.

Elsewhere, news just broke that Cleveland has fired GM Chris Grant.

What else is happening?
