A Stern Warning has a brand new site!! Click the logo or go to http://www.asternwarning.com

The Warning of the Night is normally reserved for a great individual performance, but the Timberwolves' victory over Indiana was a team effort deserving of recognition. The T-Wolves came into the game having only won 3 games (and lost 21), playing an over .500 team in Indiana.
Bassy Telfair appears to have finally got his groove back. He played all 48 minutes in this match for 29 points and 11 assists. Foundation stone Al Jefferson finished with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 3 blocks, whilst back-from-the-dead Antoine Walker shimmied his way to 23 points off 6 three-pointers.
The T-Wolves were behind by as many as 21 points, before rallying for a 13 point victory. Jermaine O'Neal continued his uninspiring performance this season with 8 points on 3/11 shooting, leaving Lil Dunleavy as the only significant scorer for the Pacers shooting a decent percentage (10/18) on his way to 30 points.
Both teams decided to turn the game into a track-meet, with Minnesota scoring 131 (average 92.8) and Indiana putting up 118 (average 104.4), with 11 players getting into double figures. This would have been a game worth watching it seems.
