Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-11-19

Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-11-19--Houston forward Trevor Ariza was escorted into the Wolves' locker room fewer than 90 minutes before Wednesday's game.

Hey, big trade in the air?


He just stoped by to chat with Wolves coach Kurt Rambis, his assistant coach in Los Angeles with the Lakers last season.

Ariza signed a five-year, $33 million free-agent contract with Houston last summer and has bloomed into an 18.5 point a game scorer on a team who has played so far this season without Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady.

"Trevor is such a unique individual, an absolute joy to work with and coach," Rambis said. "He was just scratching the surface of who he could be as a ballplayer last year."

--Wolves rookie Jonny Flynn on Wednesday finally faced somebody about his size, Rockets point guard Aaron Brooks.

Was Flynn tempted to post up the little fellow?

"I actually thought about it," Flynn said. "I was going to talk to Kurt about it. He might get mad if I sat on the block, but I might get one of them."

Brooks scored 13 points -- five below his season average -- and had eight turnovers Wednesday on a night when Flynn didn't score in double digits for the first time in his NBA career.

He scored nine, ending an 11-game streak to start his career that tied Donyell Marshall's franchise rookie record.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's still early for us to get out of what we're in. We're going to have to get tough and learn. We're going to have to finish games, unless we plan on losing 81 games." ? Wolves forward Al Jefferson after his team lost its 11th consecutive game to start the season 1-11.
