Tonight is the first game at the Target Center this year, so Love and Miller are getting ready to introduce themselves to the home crowd. Wittman's still got a lot of thinking to do about his rotation, let alone the cuts that must be made next week (more on that shortly).
We've already played Chicago this preseason, beating them 96-86 last Tuesday in Chicago. While a balanced offense and significant advantages in rebounds and turnovers won the game for Minnesota, Drew Gooden went off on our post defense for 20 points in 26 minutes.
Did you know Derrick Rose scored 30 points last night against Dallas? Learning curve be damned.

Minnesota: Randy Foye / Mike Miller / Ryan Gomes / Mark Madsen / Al Jefferson
Chicago: Kirk Hinrich / Larry Hughes / Luol Deng / Tyrus Thomas / Drew Gooden
