Game 2: New York Knicks

T-Wolves Knicks
0-1 0-1
Game Time: 5:00
Radio: BOB 106.1

The Wolves lost their season opener, but throughout the game, played much more as a team than last season, and also outplayed the Nuggets much of the way before falling apart in the fourth quarter.

Tonight, the Wolves will look to rebounds against another 0-1 team, the New York Knicks. The game will mark the return to New York for Wolves point guard Sebastian Telfair, and he’ll also be playing against his cousin Stephon Marbury.

The main task for the Wolves tonight will be to limit the fouls, and limit long scoring droughts. Against Denver, some key players including McCants played just 29 minutes because of foul trouble. Plus, Denver capitalized at the line.

Watch For…

…Big Al. In his first game, he scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. That was against one of the best defenders in the league. How will he fare against Zach Randolph?

…Telfair vs. Marbury. Not only will Telfair be returning to New York, but he’ll also be playing against his cousin. Will he break out? Who will win the family battle?

…fouls. The reason for the loss to the Nuggets was fouls. The Nuggets reached the line twice and many times and the Wolves, and oddly enough, knocked down twice as many free throws (28). Can the Wolves stay out of foul trouble?

…Gerald Green. In the opener, Green did not play. Will he get his first shot as a Wolf?
