Target Center

Minneapolis, Minnesota

My cousin’s two boys were awarded free tickets to the Target Center to watch a Timberwolves basketball game for getting on the “A” Honor Roll. They needed two “adults” to go with them, and somehow I was picked to attend, as well as my Uncle.

The New Orleans Pelicans were in town on the day that they picked to go. It was also Crunch’s birthday, the mascot of the Timberwolves. Which added to the festivities.

Karl-Anthony Towns had a great game, and put on a show in the first half, but he found himself in foul trouble fairly early in the second half. Towns ended up with 36 points, and 8 rebounds.
Ricky Rubio also played well, scoring 15 and dishing out 12 assists.
The Wolves led at halftime, but their bench left a lot to be desired. When the starters rested or were on the bench due to foul trouble, the Pelicans came back, and led much of the second half. New Orleans would go onto a 122-106 win.
