MINNEAPOLIS There's a certain logic to the little things, to shots falling and players fouling, to passing and dribbling.
It's about angles and speed, about picking the right moment and acting. But when it comes to who's able to find that perfect blend of timing and vision, logic doesn't always prevail. Luck can overpower logic, and momentum trumps it all. That's why planning based on what should happen can often be a dangerous trap in the NBA.
Here's what should happen Wednesday night: The Timberwolves should get a small early lead over the Bobcats, who average a league-worst 86.4 points per game. Although the Timberwolves average 96 points, they're notoriously slow to start offensively, so a big lead at halftime may not happen. That lead should come in the third quarter, though, when the Timberwolves average 25.2 points fourth-best in the NBA.
The Timberwolves should win. They should snap their season-long four-game losing streak. They should. But should doesn't mean anythin...
