Continued: Many guards would meet Wolves' needs

“I’m not surprised by it,” former teammate J.J. Redick told ESPNLos Angeles.com. “I would be more surprised when Dwight starts taking responsibility. That would be the most negative thing I can say, but that’s the truth. You can’t take all the credit and not accept any of the blame.”

Spurs keep on keeping on

San Antonio has continued on without injured star Tony Parker and has done so by relying upon Cory Joseph and Patty Mills to go 3-0 since Parker went out for a month because of a significantly sprained ankle.

Oh, it doesn’t hurt that the Spurs — visitors to Target Center on Tuesday night — still have Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, too.

“More than anything, you depend on the professionalism and the character of your players to carry on,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told reporters. “There are two choices: You can cry and moan, or you can compete … You act like that person doesn’t exist for now.”

THE WOLVES’ WEEK AHEAD

Sunday: 6 p.m. vs. Dallas (Ch. 29)

Tuesday: 7 p.m. vs. San Antonio (FSN Plus)

Wednesday: 6 p.m. at Indiana (FSN)

Friday: 7 p.m. at Houston (Ch. 29)

Player to watch

Paul George, Pacers: Taken six picks after the Wolves took Wes Johnson fourth overall in 2010, he’s a candidate for both Most Improved and Defensive Player of the Year and a big reason why the Pacers might be the East’s best chance to knock off the Heat come playoff time.

Voices

« I get hit harder than that every night. »
