Since Herb Hill and Austin Croshere don’t get any run on their teams, Ryan Gomes is the only former Friar in the NBA who gets any serious playing time. So, I am going to try to give a little Gomes update after each Timberwolves game.

The Timberwolves were on the road again facing the Portland Trailblazers on Saturday night.  Their losing skid continued, losing 97-93 to drop their record to 1-5.

Gomes came off the bench for the second straight game and logged 20 minutes.  He only scored 4 points on 2-5 shooting.  However he was strong on the boards pulling down 6 rebounds.

Rookie Kevin Love, who replaced Gomes in the starting lineup, did really well in his first start on Friday night.  However, last night he recorded only 2 points off 2 foul shots.  He shot 0-7 from the field.   It will be interesting to see if they give Gomes another shot in the starting lineup.

The Wolves next game is Tuesday night at Golden State.
