Opponent Game Thread: T-Pups

Hello Pounders!

TrooperJoe hasn't made a fanpost in a couple of days and I think that the Timberwolves gamethread had some funny stuff that we couldn't miss.

So here you have, hope you enjoy it:

Wolves lose by 4 or less. Possibly in overtime... if not triple-overtime.

Always wear the Muskies jerseys!

by GhostofPooh on Jan 12, 2014 | 3:35 PM reply Cynical Jason

Yeah, I'm walking into this expecting a loss.

The Spurs are the Wolves’ (and just about everyone else’s) kryptonite.

I’d love a win, though!

"Some men have a way with words. Other men not have way." --Steve Martin

The script says it's gonna be a close loss

If you have followed the wolves this season, then you know as well as I do that this one’s gonna be a close loss. Fact.

Health tip for tonight.

Don’t watch the 4th quarter.

I'll always have a soft spot for him.

Mostly because he is the only player I can ever remember owning in fantasy basketball who could be played at 4 different positions during the same season. Plus he did well in nearly every stat. Such a versatile player when he was with the Suns.

Another example of the Wolves' roster mismanagement

Career WS/48

Price: .061
Barea: .065

Yet we’re paying Barea 4.6 million when we have a substantially similar player sitting on the end of the bench whose contract only recently became guaranteed. (Also, Price was actually better than Barea according to both WS/40 and RAPM last year.)

The Wolves – always paying more and getting less.

by WolvesFan03 on Jan 12, 2014 | 6:12 PM up reply

On the other hand, I briefed the Spurs roster salaries

Holy sh%$

by FreeDieng on Jan 12, 2014 | 6:14 PM up reply

Players on the Spurs making less than Barea:

Bonner
Green
Belinelli
Leonard
Ayres
Mills
Joseph

I didn’t even list the end of their bench. But yeah, all the good teams in the west have similarly long lists. Some of it is the much bemoaned drafting disparity b/w the Wolves and these teams. But that’s not all of it—a good deal of it is misallocation of resources, and that’s borne out by the fact that the Spurs didn’t draft a lot of the guys on that above list.

by WolvesFan03 on Jan 12, 2014 | 6:18 PM up reply

That contract was baffling.

We literally offered twice the money and twice the years anyone else did because of one playoff run.

by BG Murphy on Jan 12, 2014 | 7:34 PM up reply

I have to admit

I turned it off with seven minutes to go. Could not take anymore of the SA announcers and my feed was so bitmapped I needed the audio cues to follow the game.

Always sucks to play SA but playing them when they’ve had three days rest sucks the most. I hope New Orleans crushes their ancient asses tomorrow night.

Again the bench played relatively well

While the starters not named Pek didn’t really show up.

After over a decade of watching the Spurs stomp on my favorite team it just gets really hard to take. They shut you down (some tactics fair and some not) on defense and then on offense they seem to score in ways that make your team look like they have never played organized basketball before.
