Good morning friends.
Just a short open thread for your morning enjoyment.
The Wolves open a two game road trip in Florida tonight in Miami, at 6:30 pm CST. This will be the 2nd and last meeting between the two teams this season, as the Heat were at Target Center a couple of weeks ago in what was probably the team's worst with Rubio performance. The Wolves will look to get a split in the season series on the road. Tomorrow they are in Orlando to face the Magic.
Ricky Rubio practiced yesterday with the team, but is listed as questionable for tonight. I am just going to assume he is out until I see otherwise.
Meanwhile, the team flew to Florida after practice, raising the big question: Did they make it in time for the Early Bird Special?
