Found December 05, 2012 on Razzball Basketball:
Alexey Shved scored 17 pts last night in Philadelphia making it three straight 15+ point games (17, 16, 17) in a row now.  He chipped in 4 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 block, and hit four three pointers. Not too bad for a guy who’s just 15% owned in yahoo leagues. That’s what she Shved! Anyway, there’s some concern with his minutes, however, but Shvedy lead all players last night with 29 minutes. J.J. Barea also had a good game with 11 points and 10 assists in 27 minutes, and starting point guard Luke “Star Wars reference” Ridnour had 10 points and 4 assists in 21 minutes. Rick Adelman thinks Shved could be “The Answer” at shooting guard for the Wolves. And that’s me quoting someone paraphrasing someone tweeting someone else. Either way, Shved is likely to see plenty of time on the court and could be worth a look for your fantasy team. Here’s what else happened Tuesday night in fantasy basketball: Lebron James – 26 pts, 13 reb, 11 ast, 3 stl, 2 blk. The triple double. Yup, Bron did just a...

Soon, Rubio will be making new memories

MINNEAPOLIS I don't remember the first time I spoke with Ricky Rubio, but it was likely on New Year's Day after the Timberwolves' improbable win over the Mavericks, and I was probably too busy reveling in the fact that all these nice new people who I was about to work alongside seemed to be crediting me for the win. (It was my first day of work.) So no, I don't...

Wolves Monday: Shved clutch off bench

MINNEAPOLIS A month into the season and just 15 games into Alexey Shved's NBA career, the Timberwolves wouldn't think twice about drawing up a play to get the ball to the guard late in the fourth quarter. It's the ultimate statement of confidence, but it's also deserved; Shved has scored more than half of his career points in the game's final 12 minutes and seems...

Wolves Tuesday: 3-pointers not falling

MINNEAPOLIS It's impossible not to have faith in Kevin Love, but in his first weeks back this season, I've found myself holding my breath during every 3-point shot he attempts. It hasn't been pretty; he's shooting just 19.4 percent from long range. Of course Love is still getting his shooting back after five weeks out, and with the strides he made from long-range...

Wolves Wednesday: A Saints connection?

MINNEAPOLIS So you've read my story about SportVU cameras in the NBA that posted today, right? RIGHT? Well, assuming you have, which you should, here's some more information about the platform the Timberwolves use along with the camera data. When Matt Bollero, the basketball operations assistant who pitched the idea of SportVU to the Timberwolves, initially began talking...

Will these cameras make box scores obsolete?

MINNEAPOLIS Pass, pass, shot. Pass, turnover. Rebound, shot, rebound, turnover. Dribble, dribble, dribble. For nearly every game at the beginning of last season, R.J.

Win or lose, the Minnesota Timberwolves...

No Love: Celtics top Timberwolves 104-94

Maybe my title is a little bit of an exaggeration; Kevin Love scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. But Timberwolves puns are hard, so sue me.This game was both closer and not as close as the final score indicated. The Wolves led by four at halftime and trailed by just seven at the end of the third quarter. But the Celtics’ defense locked down in the 4th, stopping Minnesota...
