Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Porter coaches Wolves tonight in Milwaukee

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves pre-game, Wolves news Updated: December 27, 2011 - 7:50 PM

The Wolves play on – and coach on – tonight without Rick Adelman.

Terry Porter will act as head coach while Adelman is away from the team to attend his mother-in-law’s funeral.

Porter will start the same lineup as last night’s lineup – Luke and Wes Johnson, Love, Darko and Beasley up front – but wouldn’t say if the unit that ended last night’s game will do so again tonight.

That unit was Ricky Rubio, J.J. Barea, Love, Beasley and Derrick Williams.

Matchups tonight – namely Bucks center Andrew Bogut – would change things.

>We’ll see how much Darko plays tonight to counter Bogut after he played almost 20 physical minutes against Kendrick Perkins last night.
