Puppies WIN!!

I've been neglecting our rebuilding Puppy Dogs. After five attempts this season, they were still searching for their first 'W'. The 6th was a charm, and victory was theirs against the lowly Sacramento Kings.

There is no KG, or other stars, but someone will break through eventually, and last night it was McCants:
On Wednesday night, Rashad McCants burst through it, allowing the Wolves to end their season-opening, five-game losing streak by scoring a career-high 33 points in a 108-103 victory over the Sacramento Kings at Target Center.
I pick on the Vikings and hype on the Wild but tend to leave the puppies alone. So for all your Lumber Puppy needs, visit Canis Hoopus, a local Timberwolves blog with great insight and current information. Stop-n-Pop isn't so sure about McCants:
Rashad McCants has the potential to be problematic. Al Jefferson is the man, is the man, is the man; McCants needs to realize he’s the 2nd option (for now) and that 1 on 5 drives into the lane do not make for optimal possessions. He and Jefferson could be a decent inside/outside threat if Shad would learn to kick it back in every now and then, and, if he decides to dribble, he should drive at Jefferson’s defender rather than running to the middle of the lane, jumping in the air, and going for the highlight reel. Shad could have a long career if he learns the proper balance between slashing and jacking up the 3 AFTER he runs the ball through Jefferson.
