Game 42 Preview: Trail Blazers vs. Timberwolves (plus discussion thread)

Game Time:  7:00 p.m.  TV:  CSNNW

There's a hella big windstorm going on around these parts, meaning I'm losing power every 8-10 minutes, so this is going to be quick.  Sometimes you make your cross-town commute without ever hitting a red light.  Sometimes Starbucks turns your grande into a venti by mistake and doesn't charge you extra.  And sometimes you get to play the Minnesota Timberwolves.  The Blazers have been here twice in the last month, both times walking away with wins.  There's no reason tonight should be different.  Control the boards, particularly Kevin Love.  Realize the 'Wolves have exactly two scorers--Love and Michael Beasley--and that Beasley is either out or coming off an ankle injury.  That makes defending this team criminally easy.  Understand that they play outside in and adjust your defense accordingly.  Most of all, just treat this like a real game, bring some passion and energy, and you should win easily.

So now, the discussion question of the day:  Is there anyone on this Timberwolves roster you'd seriously trade for right now and if so, what would you give up to get them?

That's just one question, though.  Feel free to use this thread to discuss any and all Blazer-related topics not addressed elsewhere.
