Wolves Lose To Nuggets In OT, Updates
If you look up "heartbreaker" in the dictionary this is what you will find. The Wolves are now 6 games behind division rival Denver who had only 9 players suited up for the game.
"We've been snakebitten a lot this year," said Garnett, who made 8-of-21 shots. "It was a difficult game. It's the league, anything can happen. (Carmelo) hit a tough, tough Powerball shot. It's like winning the Lotto and like those people who worked for the meat factory, they hit the Lotto."
This game was the first sellout of the season but these were the only happy Twolves fans in the Target Center as the dude on the left caught the ball that Ricky Davis kicked into the stands after the buzzer.
Glen Taylor in a letter to season ticket holders on why no trade was made before the deadline:
"... Ultimately we could not find enough value in the players that were being offered and were not willing to part with the players that teams requested," the owner wrote. "We could have made a trade simply to change our roster, but that would have been a knee-jerk reaction that would not have improved our situation. Instead, because there was no dominant-player deal that fit our philosophy, we all agreed that our best course of action was to give our team time to gel and make the dash for the finish line together.
"Have no doubt, we are still committed to building a team that you can be proud of, a team that will make it back to the playoffs and a team that will eventually pursue an NBA championship."
Three of the five "white Americans" who've played in the last 10 NBA All-Star games are former Timberwolves: Tom Gugliotta, Christian Laettner, and Wally Szczerbiak.
