Wolves 101, Blazers 89From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
Actions, apparently, speak louder than words.
Just ask Ricky Davis. On Nov. 4 he opened up his mouth, spouting a little trash during a game in Portland, a game in which the Timberwolves led by 16 but eventually lost.
In Tuesday night's rematch between the two teams, at Target Center, Davis opened up his arsenal instead. As a result the Wolves opened the game like they'd been shot out of a gun and never stopped, blowing away the Trail Blazers 101-89.
"That's his nickname, Get Buckets," guard Mike James said. "Tonight he was on his game. That's what we need Ricky to do."
"He came in early this morning and got 200 shots off," Casey said. "That's what you have to do. If you're a golfer, you hit golf balls. If you're a basketball player in a shooting slump, you come out and shoot. Hopefully he has that stroke back."
