Deja vu for Kemba Walker in Bobcats' 89-87 win over Timberwolves

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kemba Walker took both himself and his Charlotte Bobcats back in time with his game-winning, last-second shot that beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 89-87 on Wednesday night at Target Center. His 19-foot jump shot with seven-tenths of a second remaining provided a fitting finish to a wild final six minutes on a night when Walker turned the calendar back 20 months ...

Bizarre Finish Between Cats And Wolves Culminates In Kemba Walker Game Winner

Short four starters and half of their normal active roster, Wednesday’s version of the Minnesota Timberwolves were about as undermanned a team as I’ve seen since Don Nelson was forced to exercise a little-known rule and put a fouled-out Warrior in the game during his most recent stint with Golden State. Lucky for Rick Adelman, his group of nine healthy bodies (one more...

Charlotte Bobcats Win 3 in a Row, Nation Prepares to Be Sent to Soviet Reeducation Camps

I find the start to this season to be not just surprising but unfathomable.  Last month if you had told me that the Bobcats would start the season 4-3 with a three-game winning streak, I would have assumed it was a sick joke.  Incidentally, this also would have been my response if you’d told me [...]

Howard, Timberwolves a convenient match

MINNEAPOLIS Oh, maaaaaaan.Josh Howard laughs. It's the only possible reaction to the statement he didn't want to hear, the lead-in to a question about how difficult it must have been to wait all these months for a team.Josh, you've been in the league since 2003"Oh, maaaaan."Josh Howard has been around for a while. He's a veteran, one who seemed just a shade...

No one expected Roy's comeback to be easy

MINNEAPOLIS Brandon Roy was staring at his feet.He was staring right past those knees, right past the problem. He doesn't like to think about the problem, really, but now, when it's being forced down his throat, he has to. It's a silent problem, an invisible one. Roy was dressed as if he were about to change out of his warm-ups and into his jersey for a game, but of...

Wolves Wednesday: Pekovic, Roy, Barea out

MINNEAPOLIS And then there were nine. The Timberwolves announced at shootaround Wednesday that, in addition to Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Chase Budinger (all out with long-term injures), Brandon Roy, J.J. Barea and Nikola Pekovic will be unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Bobcats. Barea sprained his left foot last Wednesday night and has not played since. Coach Rick...

Wolves' Williams makes strides in setback

MINNEAPOLIS Some nights, Derrick Williams is a barb. Other nights, he's promise. Still others, he's invisible. Invariably, with a loss, he's mentioned for failing to do this or that when, really, the rest of the team often fails in equal measure. Perhaps it stands out that much more because of who he is: no. 2 draft pick, tantalizingly talented, still unproven Derrick...

Wolves' Love on track to return in December

MINNEAPOLIS December is a hot word around the Timberwolves locker room.It's a pretty empty place right now, in the bowels of the Target Center, with six Minnesota players currently injured. But the mere mention of December is enough to spark some hope. For months, we've known it as a vague target for Ricky Rubio's return, but now, it's about Kevin Love, too.The All...

Timberwolves Injury News: Nikola Pekovic, Brandon Roy, and J.J. Barea Still Out

The Minnesota Timberwolves are going to have trouble winning games if they don't have players on the court.  Of course, they'll have players on the court, but they have been missing starters.  Last night, the Wolves were without three players - Nikola Pekovic, Brandon Roy, and J.J. Barea. According to Jon Krawcynzki of ESPN.com, Brandon Roy hopes to play Friday, but...

Bobcats Escape the Twin City with a Win

Byron Mullens played the most complete game of his career tonight.  Keep it up big guy!No one said that this season would be easy. Many said that we'd be lucky to see 15 wins. Well, tonight we got our 4th win of the season, and the 3rd one in a row. It wasn't pretty for the last portion of the 4th quarter, but a W is a W, so no complaints here. Kemba's killer crossover...

T-wolves Pekovic, Roy, Barea all out vs Bobcats
