The Wolves’ Week Ahead
Monday: 7 p.m. vs. Houston (FSN, NBA TV)
Wednesday: 7 p.m. vs. Denver (FSN)
Player to watch:
Dwight Howard, Rockets
He’s not the franchise player the Rockets thought they might have been signing, but he’s an All-Star Game center nonetheless and defensive anchor to a team contending with the Clippers for the fourth and final home-court playoff spot.
« That’s why we pay him the big bucks and why he’s an All-Star starter, to do things like that. »
