Wolves Fall To The NuggetsThe Wolves get their 11th consecutive loss on the road in Denver, losing 106-94.
"Denver played physical and aggressive on the boards," Minnesota coach Dwane Casey said. "They got a lot of offensive boards and second possessions and Carmelo [Anthony] was very aggressive. They played like a team needs to play that is getting ready for the playoffs."
"I trusted our team would figure out what we needed to do to win since we started out kind of slow back and forth," Denver coach George Karl said. "We wore them down physically in the fourth quarter, and that made a big difference. Our activity on the offensive glass was great and getting to the free throw line was also good."
Asked if Minnesota would be better off rebuilding with or without Garnett, Denver coach George Karl said: "If was an owner or a coach [there] I probably would die with KG because I love him that much as a player. I don't know if there's been a professional intensity for that long by a player that, I think, [is] a top-five player."
