November 16th Week’s Wolves Highlights: Rubio, KG, & More

The Wolves have dropped four straight games and are currently 4-6 on the season. The schedule for the upcoming week through the 22nd is:

Nov 17th: Wolves @ Heat 6:30pm CST

Nov 18th: Wolves @ Magic 6:00pm CST

Nov 20th: Pistons @ Wolves 7:00pm CST

Things To Watch:

  • Ricky Rubio has missed 4 straight games (Wolves are 0-4) with a knee injury that became a hamstring injury. Ricky has practiced today and its still up in the air if he will play in Miami on Tuesday.
  • Garnett is just the 5th player in history to log over 50,000 minutes in the NBA. KG is only 105 minutes played to pass Jason Kidd for 3rd all time. With Garnett averaging 16 minutes per game, he is about seven games away from passing Kidd on the list.
  • Towns has averaged over 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks through his first 10 games. First player to do that since Tim Duncan in 97-98. Towns blocked at least 3 shots in 6 straight games but has only had one block in the last three games.
  • Zach LaVine continues to start at point guard and is averaging 21 points per game. He has hit four threes in the last two contests. He has also been playing some shooting guard towards the end of games, which should make people happy.

Week  Record Prediction: 1-2
