Wolves Destroy Dallas

I think Casey might have read my previous post, because the Wolves stayed with their gameplan for the entire 48 minutes on Wednesday against Dallas.

The game started out pretty sloppy, and the Wolves missed a bunch of shots. Again, we had a chance to pounce on the opposition early but missed it. At that point, I pretty much assumed it was a matter of time before the Wolves began to collapse and Dallas started running up the score. But like a team that needs to win, the Wolves kept at it.

I'm not sure the Wolves would have won that game in such easy fashion had the Mavs not been on the second night of a back-to-back, but I'll take it. The Mavs D struggled in the second half and the Wolves were able to get good shots. They did a good job pushing the ball to really wear out the Mavs.

Now the Wolves have probably the toughest back-to-back imaginable. If they can get one of two, they'll be in good shape with a somewhat easier upcoming schedule.
