We have a couple potentially decent games tonight for national TV, thought a big game thread would be appropriate.  (I can't go anywhere as I'm getting pounded with snow in WI :blink: )

First up - should be an entertaining game between the Thunder, who are currently riding a 12 game winning streak, but are on the back end of a back-to-back, having to travel from Atlanta to Minnesota (I wonder if they had any issues with the massive snow storm?) and the Wolves, who are a very entertaining team to watch with Rubio at the helm, could they snap the Thunders winning streak tonight?

Wolves have some crisp ball movement so far, Pekovic is looking great in the post and Love is knocking down 3's...and Rubio hasn't even entered the game yet :o

I think I can hear a sigh of relief from all those Love owners out there that have endured his rough shooting so far this season.  His jumper looks great tonight...

minnesota' s O looks pretty good.  pretty bad defense though, especially in transition.  they have some good depth but i truly believe they need to sacrifice some of that and pick up a guy who can really shoot.  korver or redick.
