Here is a game thread for tonight's preseason action against the Raptors. Throughout the game we'll provide updates and throw in some commentary on this thread, given the launch of the Forums.
Good luck to those of you who sign up on the site and the chance to win two tickets to a future home game at the Target Center!

Here is a link to a preview of tonight's game (in PDF form):
And we just got the official word that Kevin Martin is out of tonight's game. Doh!
Starting lineups for each team …
Wolves – Rubio, Shved, Brewer, Love, and Pekovic
Raptors – Kyle Lowry, DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Amir Johnson, and Jonas V
(I'm radio only tonight because of the NBA remains stuck in the 1990's). I'll post updates accordingly throughout the game, and if a few questions or thoughts come up, we'll put them in here.
First question: are you at all concerned about the injury bug already hitting this team? Budinger … and now Kevin Martin. Thoughts?
28-25 … Raptors are leading the Wolves. Rudy Gay leads the Raptors w/ 9 points. Wolves not shooting well at all, but are getting to the FT line. Love leads the Wolves with 11 points. Everyone struggling though from the floor.
Milt is joining Alan Horton on the radio broadcast. Thoughts on his hiring?
At the half, the Wolves and Raptors are tied at 52. Kevin Love back to being Kevin Love with 16 and 8 at the half. However, sounds like a bit of a scare to end the half with him slow to get up under the basket. (I'll work on getting a "praying" emoticon)
During the 2nd quarter Al Horton spoke to Milt and my two biggest takeaways from the interview:
1. He has been most impressed with Dieng this preseason
2. He isn't going with the team to Mexico City and will be scouting the collegiate ranks at that time. (Nice!)
For those of you that may have followed my link via Twitter without much of an idea of what we are doing here on Timberpups.com – welcome to the new Forum!
