The Wolves looked utterly dominant last night. New Orleans couldn't do anything on offense - they went over 10 minutes in the first half without scoring a single point. At one point in the second quarter the Wolves were shooting 58% and the Hornets were missing 80%. It was a tough go for the Hornets last night and a much needed rebound win after losing four straight for the Wolves. Wally looked good, again. He did his thing, going 8 of 15 from the floor for 21 points, but he was also busy elsewhere. He grabbed 4 rebounds, dished out 2 assists, 2 steals, and a block. Sure, they aren't gaudy numbers, but when Wally fills up a box score, you know he's doing his job. KG has a short night but still scored 17 points, 9 assists, but only 7 rebounds. Mike "I'm a total failure" Kandiluzki kept the boards clean for the Wolves, grabbing 10. Oh, and maybe more importantly, he only took 3 shots!
The guy that really got it done was Rashad McCants. 14 points on 6 of 10 shooting and six rebounds. He had a couple sicko dunks and some great moves on offense. He didn't look very good on defense, but he's clearly working to improve that part of his game.
They've got a chance to get back on the winning horse with a game Friday night at home against the Lozers - I mean Blazers, and they'll wanna go ahead a take that win because Phoenix comes to town after christmas. They've got Seattle at home and at Orlando to finish the year. So hopefully they can finish the year by winning 3 of 4 and run into 2006 with a 16-11 record.
