My buddy Boris fixed me up with tix to the Jazz – Timberwolves game at Energy Solutions Arena last night.
GREAT seats. Haven’t been to an NBA game since Ronnie Seikaly was playing center for the nascent Miami Heat (1989-ish?).
Unfortunately, of the guys I really wanted to see, Ricky Rubio sustained a season-ending knee injury last week, and Kevin Love had an unremarkable night, almost tearing his left thumb off in the process. 2-Guard Gordon Hayward of the Jazz was very impressive, even though I still can’t quite resolve the fact that he looks like a 16-year-old kid scouring the expensive seats for a prom date.
