January 3, 2013

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Canis Hoopus.

Really wish I was listening to Matt Harping for this one.

Not 100% sure on this, but I think the “%” is used to denote sarcasm.

LP mobile has the Utah feed
I think we can safely assume that Milsap will dominate Love by scoring 20 and getting 15 rebs to Love’s 22 and 16.
Additionally, all Twolves blocks are goaltending whether they are above the rim or not.

Randy Foye
Randy effing Foye

Alexey Shed? come on
by jacob9 on Jan 2, 2013 8:13 PM CST

“Shev”
The D is silent, apparently
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 8:13 PM CST

AK’s Defense has been nice everyday.
by Doctor_Teh on Jan 2, 2013 8:31 PM CST


Utah is probably the first team I can think of in a decade
That is playing a better player behind each of their starters
by Ailuridae on Jan 2, 2013 8:32 PM CST

Kanter > Big Al?
by jacob9 on Jan 2, 2013 8:33 PM CST

Favors > Milsap?
by googoleeoottooooleeoottooooleeeatta on Jan 2, 2013 8:33 PM CST

I was a skeptic pre-draft
but Favors is pretty amazing
by Ailuridae on Jan 2, 2013 8:39 PM CST

I’d say Favors + Kantner > Al and Milsap
and I love Milsap
by Ailuridae on Jan 2, 2013 8:43 PM CST

I have now seen Enes Kanter one more time than I’ve seen Bigfoot.
Correlation? You be the judge.
by googoleeoottooooleeoottooooleeeatta on Jan 2, 2013 8:32 PM CST

OOOhhhh shit Favors. Didn’t think you could do that yet.
by googoleeoottooooleeoottooooleeeatta on Jan 2, 2013 8:37 PM CST


Barera and Shevved make another appearance
Seriously, guys, check those pronunciation guides…
by Spanish_Inquisition on Jan 2, 2013 8:38 PM CST

it’s so weird
these guys are professional broadcasters, right? Isn’t it pretty much the job they get paid for to know things about players? And, call me a bluff old traditionalist, but I think a name is a pretty important thing to know.
by Malastare on Jan 2, 2013 8:41 PM CST

You can really only pick up these things by watching basketball.
Why would these guys do that?
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 8:42 PM CST

It just drives me a little nuts
During the Houston game Jim Peterson said the league sends out a pronunciation guide with every player’s name each season. These guys just aren’t bothering to look at it.
by Spanish_Inquisition on Jan 2, 2013 8:43 PM CST

Sasquatch killing Steamer
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 8:43 PM CST

what the hell is this crap
by Malastare on Jan 2, 2013 8:43 PM CST

It’s embarrassing to be down 10 to a team that gives significant minutes to Demarre Carroll
by Malastare on Jan 2, 2013 8:45 PM CST

and starts Foye
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 8:47 PM CST

and Jamaal Tinsley.
by googoleeoottooooleeoottooooleeeatta on Jan 2, 2013 8:47 PM CST


1 (foul) 2 (foul) 3 (foul)
you might make a case for the first one, but come on Harpring.
by Malastare on Jan 2, 2013 8:52 PM CST

He’s not an idiot. So it might be a schtick
by Ailuridae on Jan 2, 2013 8:53 PM CST

you’d have to think so
by Malastare on Jan 2, 2013 8:54 PM CST

Do you have any evidence that he’s not an idiot?
Everything I’ve seen would point to the contrary.
by Boss10 on Jan 2, 2013 8:55 PM CST

who the fuck cares about career rebound 4000?
anyone?
by bheidge on Jan 2, 2013 8:55 PM CST

Thurl Bailey?
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 8:56 PM CST

4000
doesnt crack the top 250
Thurl Bailey ended up with 4718, good for 243
by DedicatedFollowerOfFashion on Jan 2, 2013 8:58 PM CST

Pek jumped lol
by ballllin on Jan 2, 2013 9:01 PM CST

Pek, pek, pek
Can’t bite on Al’s pump fake. Ever.
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 9:01 PM CST


Hi guys .
You got to help me today. Cant see the game. I am working.
by cherokee 6901 on Jan 2, 2013 9:10 PM CST

consider yourself lucky
by Grape Drank on Jan 2, 2013 9:10 PM CST

Jamal Tinsley shot 5-6 and has 5 rebounds.
Enes Kanter dunked twice on breaks.
Extrapolate the suck.
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 9:11 PM CST

Sid Lowe is on the other bench
we have that going for us
by Ailuridae on Jan 2, 2013 9:16 PM CST

PS
those announcers have some straight ugly suits
by the.hubs on Jan 2, 2013 9:15 PM CST

The suits in question (click to enlarge if you dare):

harpring boler suits

I really hope…
Utah lets Millsap leave in the offseason and he joins a team in the East. Please…
by vjl110 on Jan 2, 2013 9:28 PM CST

or Siberia.
by OccamsTaser on Jan 2, 2013 9:28 PM CST


and now Shved is hurt
screw you Tinsley
by Malastare on Jan 2, 2013 9:31 PM CST

You mean that guy, Shev, right?
by Spanish_Inquisition on Jan 2, 2013 9:31 PM CST

Shed?
by 25 pounds of Love on Jan 2, 2013 9:32 PM CST

chevre
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 9:32 PM CST

Remember when Love could hit a jumper?
Good times.
by googoleeoottooooleeoottooooleeeatta on Jan 2, 2013 9:32 PM CST

Love get your f**king hands up
by jacob9 on Jan 2, 2013 9:33 PM CST

No hustle.
Bad attitude. No defense.
Sit him.
by CoffeeJanitor on Jan 2, 2013 9:44 PM CST

getting a little antsy
watching the Wolves keep getting out played by their primary playoff competition teams.
by SlowBreak on Jan 2, 2013 9:34 PM CST

If Love keeps this crap up any longer we’re not a playoff team
by CoffeeJanitor on Jan 2, 2013 9:44 PM CST


The Jazz commentator just said “Backside Love”
by 25 pounds of Love on Jan 2, 2013 9:38 PM CST

Can we please get Hayward
by jacob9 on Jan 2, 2013 9:53 PM CST

no more white guys
by keylimekai on Jan 2, 2013 11:59 PM CST

Hey, Matt
Derrick Favors is -2 in a +23 point game. He did not really ‘dominate’
by CaliWolf on Jan 2, 2013 10:08 PM CST

Getting in Kevin’s head accounts for +25, though
by OR-7 on Jan 2, 2013 10:09 PM CST

Highlight of the game=Backside Love comment from the announcer
Seriously the Recap will have the opening Tip Off as the only Wolves highlight
by fishhoop on Jan 2, 2013 10:09 PM CST

did we win that?
by the.hubs on Jan 2, 2013 10:10 PM CST

AK stole it
by fishhoop on Jan 2, 2013 10:11 PM CST

urg…arg…
by Atrainholla! on Jan 2, 2013 10:31 PM CST

Well said.
