Cleveland Cavaliers Vs. Minnesota Timberwolves: The Twitter Experience

New, comments

The Cavs finally got back on track with a win over the Timberwolves at the Q tonight. I cooked a fat stack of Ramen Noodles and checked out twitter for someone that could loan me an extra packet of "chicken flavor".

Ah yes back to win column. We told this afternoon to chalk this one up, and the honorable Cleveland Cavaliers came through for you.

Honestly, though, it may kill me. The Cavs, a work in progress, beat a pretty good team. They held them to 36% shooting. They of course made it interesting, but who cares? A win is a win is a win. The season is about winning 40-plus games, and pulling out an ugly one in game 4 doesnt' bother me one bit. In game 80 if you even remember this game, I'd be impressed {Editor's note: I will remember. I remember everything.}

While the rest of Cavs twitter was freaking out, the Swag King Dan Gilbert let you know (after the game) that it was never in doubt. Dan is awesome, and should call me. Dan. DAN CALL ME PLEASE.

This game was fun though, really fun. Flip Saunders was impressed.

Then there were some tweets about Anthony Bennett and it was a bummer.

REALLY THOUGH, COULD YOU PLEASE NOT?

So yeah.... The Cavs won, and I love Anthony Bennett. As always I will irrationally argue either of the points to the bitter end, and you can't stop me. We play the Bucks next, and I think the Bucks are wack. Brandon Knight has a hamstring injury, so they are starting Nate Wolters.
