I'm watching tonight's Timberwolves Summer League game so you don't have to! I'll update this post as the Wolves-Lakers game rolls along with random observations about the evening's events...here we go:
*Nice entry pass by Kevin Love to Chris Richard...Richard lays it in to tie the game at seven. Chris also happens to be sporting a very Troy Hudson-ish hairdo.
*Richard continues to have the hot hand -- the Wolves and Lakers head into the first timeout tied at nine, and Chris has scored seven of our squad's points thus far.
*Kevin Love is on the board with a baby hook. He proceeds to immediately pick up a foul on the defensive end.
*Love has now scored the last two baskets for the Wolves, as he drains a fade-away jumper. Then, of course, he once again picked up a foul on the defensive end. Four points and two fouls for Love, as the Wolves lead 13-11.
*Pops Mensah-Bonsu checks into the game and immediately gets a hard-earned basket, laying the ball in amongst a crowd of defenders, and tying the game at 15.
*There's your first highlight-reel play of the evening...Cory Brewer's transition game has always been pretty dang impressive to me, and he just pulled off a one-handed slam on the break.
*Vincent Grier checks in for the Wolves, as we come out of a timeout with the Lakers leading 21-19.
*The Wolves have been on fire from the field, shooting 9-13 thus far. Only problem? The Lakers have outrebounded them 9-4.
*Pops Mensah-Bonsu breaks a Minnesota scoring drought by sinking a layup in traffic and picking up the foul. He misses the free throw, but still tightens the gap to five, as the Wolves trail the Lakers 26-21 at the end of the first quarter. I'm definitely liking the energy that Pops is displaying; he's been very active tonight.
*Pops starts off the second quarter for the Wolves by nailing a turnaround jumper off the backboard. With six points in just under five minutes, he's certainly been impressive tonight.
*Pops is also getting it done on the defensive end, as he did a nice job of defending a Laker big who was going strong to the basket. Pops grabbed the board, got fouled on the other end, and hit both free throws. Lakers still lead, though, 30-27.
*I'll catch you after the jump for the rest of the game blog!no comments
