Good morning. Make sure your clocks are correct because today is the start of Daylight Savings Time, and we all lost an hour in our sleep. Moving us that much closer to death. Or something.
The Wolves have signed Greg Smith to a second 10-day contract. Smith, who missed one game with a toe infection, has appeared in six games and averaged over 10 minutes per contest for the Wolves, and has more or less been as expected. He's soaked up some much needed minutes in the absence of several Wolves' big men, and has played at more or less a replacement level. Not the worst guy to have around.
Because why not:
Meanwhile, since it's spring, our thoughts turn to college basketball and potential draft picks. Today the last couple of conference tournaments finish up, and both games have prospects:
Kentucky vs. Texas A&M
12:00 pm CDT, ESPN
Featuring Jamal Murray, Tyler Ulis, and some other Kentucky guys who will show up in the NBA at some point.
Michigan St. vs. Purdue
2:00 pm CDT
With Denzel Valentine and Deyonta Davis.
After which the NCAA tournament brackets get released, and then the tournament starts on Thursday (well, I guess officially Tuesday now, but I choose to ignore that).
The NBA has the Cavs in L.A. against the Clippers on ABC at 2:30 CDT today, and the Pacers at Hawks at 5:00 on NBATV.
The Wolves are back in action tomorrow night in Phoenix, and all of a sudden this road trip is looking winnable. The Suns are bad, (though the put up a good fight against the Warriors last night), the Grizzlies roster has completely fallen apart, and the Rockets are like a yo-yo.
Have a great Sunday.
