The Minnesota Timberwolves tip off against the Philadelphia 76ers, and best power forward in the game, Kevin Love, is sporting a new “I’m a polite white boy, so hopefully I get more foul calls”‘ haircut. At least that is the way it looked to me and my buddy Dan the other night.
This one tips at 7:05 PM EST, and if you were looking for TV info then look no further.

The T-Wolves are favored (-5), and would pick them to cover the spread just based on how weak the Eastern Conference is. It must be a nice break for the West teams when they get the chance to go East, especially against the non-playoff teams. Until Michael Carter-Williams can take another leap, then the 76ers are not quite ready for that level of basketball. Truth be told, they were never even really trying to make the playoffs from a management perspective. The coaching staff and players just got in the way of what seemed to be a pretty solid tanking plan from the front office.
Thanks as always for reading. We will have to see how the polite white boy haircut works for Love, but something tells me that by the end of the year he will have stopped caring and grown a mo-hawk.
