Hollinger's Insider Gems: Nov. 10, 2008

Five more thoughts on the NBA:

1. Got my first good look at the T'wolves this weekend during their nail-biter 97-93 loss to the Blazers on Saturday (Side note: Did I pick the right week to come to Portland or what?), and came away even more impressed with Al Jefferson's monstrous scoring ability on the low block. Minnesota went to him on every play down the stretch, and the Blazers just couldn't stop him.
