It has been my great privilege to initiate a thread with this title. Fleeting as it may be.

I'm calling the upset.

 

Hopefully Playoff Harden and Playoff Paul show up this series.

I can only invest the time to see the first 6 minutes of tonight's game, and I hope I prove to be wrong, but my impression is that we are seeing the miracle of birth: an egg is being laid.

Playoff Chris Paul showed up tonight.

 

Unfortunately, the one time the Wolves got scoring from their bench, the starters didn't do enough.

 

This should have been a Wolves win with how bad Houston shot it. Missed opportunity.

Listening to the TNT guys talk about the Wolves is a good way to drive yourself insane, and yet I can't stop listening.

If they get swept like this that’s fine.

But 7 shots for KAT? That’s absurd.

They did a lot better than I thought. Kudos to them. Hope it keeps up. Maybe I'll try another reverse-jinx or two.

On the one hand, it’s tough to be upset about the Wolves keeping Houston in check for one of the closest games in the opening weekend of action. On the other hand, Houston’s 3-point troubles should have gifted the wolves their best chance at an upset in this series. They will not keep throwing up bricks from downtown. I smell a blow out in game 2.

Who is KAT? Does he play for the Timberwolves?

See, the Rockets can be beat...if you shoot better than 50% from three.

I don't think they win the series but that was very much necessary if this team plans to take the next step next year.

Ricky Rubio is killing it for the Jazz. He just had a triple-double tonight, and I'm really rooting for them, unless they play the Wolves next round :)

The Wolves just gave up 50 points in one quarter of basketball. At home.

I'm glad they made the playoffs. You can only get that experience by being there.
But boy oh boy do they have a long ways to go to get from here to legit contender.

That was nuts.

I felt real good after the half. Then, like, I don’t even know what happened. Stupid desperate shot after stupid desperate shot. They had this one and tossed it in the garbage.

Fifty? Wow.

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.
