It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Remember the power outage during the Super Bowl? Yep, the one that forced you to sit there and actually talk to the people you were watching the game with. Or was it the one that enabled you to head back to the table with all of the food to stuff your face some more. It was also the one that forced us to listen to CBS’ failure to investigate anything and let Jim Nantz mumble irrelevant cliches. Yeah, you know the one.
The Minnesota Timberwolves thought it’d be all hunky dory to turn off the lights at the Target Center Monday night and fake like they had a power outage of their own. And I’m sure they received a whole bunch of “not again”‘s amongst the 13,000 in attendance. The television announcer was totally into it as you’ll see in the clip. With an 18-27 record thus far, it’s amazing that half of the 13,000 didn’t get up and leave.

You know you got some skills with the basketball when you can fake out trained, professional NBA cameramen sitting on the sidelines. That is exactly what happened during Minnesota's recent game versus the Hornets courtesy of, who else, Ricky Rubio. During the third quarter, New Orleans coughed up the ball and Rubio was on the spot to gather the loose ball. Ricky proceeded to...
MINNEAPOLIS Andrei Kirilenko left the Timberwolves game with a right quad strain at the end of the second quarter.
At the time of his exit, Kirilenko had two points on four shot attempts. Mickael Gelabale started the third quarter in his place. Kirilenko's return is questionable.
If Kirilenko does not return, that will reduce the Wolves' bench to six players. Monday marked...
MINNEAPOLIS A few weeks ago, ignorance might have been bliss. A few weeks ago, there was just Lazar Hayward on a 10-day contract, not two downright serviceable players in Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson. There was no Nikola Pekovic, no Alexey Shved, and Ricky Rubio was even further from form.
Under those circumstances, breaking down losses is best left to coaches, best not poked...
Lou Amundson may be moving on to his 7th team in six years if the Timberwolves decide to keep Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale for the remainder of the season.
According to the Star-Tribune:
Wolves forward Lou Amundson said he has been talking with his agent about the very real possibility that he will be traded or waived Friday if the Wolves intend to make room for both Chris...
The 35-minute blackout during Super Bowl XLVII was the talk of the town (and by “town”, we mean America) Sunday, so if you’re in a pro sports team’s marketing department, why not go with the latest trend in arena/stadium lighting? Some genius in the Minnesota Timberwolves organization did exactly that, scheduling a blackout between the first and second quarter of their game...
MINNEAPOLIS After straining his right quad at the end of the second quarter of Monday's loss to Portland, Timberwolves small forward Andrei Kirilenko is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. If he were to miss the game, it would be just his fifth missed game this season; he sat for four in late November and early December with back spasms.
In other Kirilenko...
