Welcome Back, Flip!Almost a year after he was fired from his position as head coach of the Timberwolves, Flip Saunders returns to the Target Center on Tuesday night as the Wolves take on the Pistons. Detroit currently has the best record in the league with 33 wins and 5 losses and have won their last 7 games. The Wolves are sitting in third place in the northwest conference at .500.
Saunders talks about his new job and coming back to town:
"Because of the success we've had here, the Minnesota thing is not going to be that huge," he said. "Going back, seeing my family for a day, seeing a lot of good friends -- I had 10 good years there and the fans were great to me -- there's that sentiment. ... But a lot of times, guys go back and it's a situation where you say, 'I am going to show you.' That's already been done."
