Dennis Velasco: Hey Eric... thanks for agreeing to do this! I think that everyone that loves basketball would agree that the Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the more exciting teams to follow in the L. Ricky Rubio, of course, is probably the main reason with his slick ways - 8.8 dimes per game, 2.9 steals and making triples 42.9 percent of the time - all of which are currently career-highs. Of course, he's also hitting career-worsts - 7.9 points and 33.7 percent shooting from the deck. I like think of Rubio as beautiful chaos, which is a very Marvel Comics villain perspective, but I think you know what I mean. How do you see Rubio doing this season, his third in the NBA?
Dennis Velasco e-mails with Eric Goldman from Canis Hoopus about tonight's Minnesota Timberwolves and Brooklyn Nets match-up. They both agree that the T-Wolves will get a jump early. Will the Nets be able to come back? This game could be emblematic of their season thus far.
