Timberwolves vs Mavericks


Timberwolves vs Mavericks

Todd Swank's Diary Entry for March 27, 2022

We had a taste of Spring last week with temperatures hitting the sixties, but dropped back into reality this week.  The lake is trying to open up for us, but it's taking a bit longer than we would like.

I went to a tech event this week for the first time since Covid.  It was so great being around people again.  Virtual events are nice, but really difficult to do networking at them.

On Friday night, we drove down to Downtown Minneapolis to catch another Timberwolves game.

I went with my buddy, Orlando Mazzolini.  He's from Chicago and stays pretty true to his roots, but I can get him to cheer for the Minnesota teams on occasion.

Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks were in town.  They beat the Timberwolves earlier in the week in a close game by a score of 110-108 so we were hoping the home team would get some revenge.

We were surprised to see that Mark Cuban traveled with the team.  I've always been a fan of his, but was especially impressed to see him walk around the arena and take pictures with a variety of people.  I haven't seen a lot of billionaires do that before.

We met some new friends named Molly & Tim.  We had fun cheering for Minnesota together.

I don't know her name, but the lady who sang the national anthem was very impressive.  She had quite the pipes on her.

The game was exciting from the opening tip-off.

Anthony Edwards is our favorite player, but he had a tough night.  He went 1 for 5 in the first half on the way to a 12 point game.  He'll do better next time.

Luka lived up to his star billing by almost getting a triple double with 24 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists.  He is absolutely electric to watch.

Just when you think he's going to shoot, he's passing it to an open player on his team.

Karl Anthony-Towns led the Wolves to a big victory with his 20 points and 9 boards.  They led by as much as 25 points and won by a score of 116 to 95.  It was a good game and a good night of fun.
