The Wolves are in a battle for worst record in the NBA tonight in Philadelphia, where they put their 8-37 record on the line against the Sixers' 9-37 mark.

As David Naylor pointed out in the preview thread:

These two teams combined have less wins than all but four NBA teams: Knicks, Magic, Lakers and Jazz. (tied with the Pistons and Pacers)

So that should make for some quality basketball. No word yet on Mo Williams' availability tonight; he was supposed to meet the team in Philadelphia after attending a funeral, but he was also suffering from some overuse, so whether he plays tonight remains unclear.

We covered the glory of this matchup in the Cup of Canis and Preview today, so I'm not going to belabor the wonder of Wolves-Sixers: Battle for Okafor any longer.

No no and no.

Enjoy. Chat. Go.

Sidebar: I'm pretty happy because today is Friday and I have left over pork roast. Which means after the game I am going to make myself a very large Cuban Sandwich.

Can't wait.
