The Sixers limp their way into Minnesota to face a 15-16 Timberwolves team and it'll take a herculean effort to right the ship against a team with a ton of size and skill on the inside. Time for the Ricky show.
It's amazing how quickly Rubio's flame has been surpassed by Jeremy Lin's. I suppose the past couple of weeks are the reason so many stars eschew the smaller markets for the big stage.
Anyway, the T-Wolves are a much worse matchup for the Sixers than your average 15-16 team. Their perimeter players are going to have snap out of their funk in a big way if this is going to be a win. I'm a little bit less than optimistic.
The tip is at 7pm. This is your game thread. I'll be here throughout. Join me if Linsanity hasn't completely taken over your brain and you still have a little room for Ricky love (or even if you just like watching the Sixers play).
Prediction: PHI 95, MIN 89
