Wolves 91, Cavaliers 97From Star Tribune:
Garnett on James' effect on the game: "I hope the city of Cleveland totally understands what they get to see night in and night out. It's like the Beatles right now, y'know?"
James on Garnett: "He comes back better and better, year in and year out. He brings his "A" game every night."
What I learned at the game tonight:
1) The Wolves have no problem blowing a significant lead.
2) If your name is Lebron James and there's 25 seconds left in the game you're allowed to tuck the ball under your arm, run to the basket, and make a layup without getting called.
While Lebron said he and former teammate Ricky Davis harbored no hard feelings towards each other, it's becoming increasingly clear that Davis and KG are getting along awesomely. The camaraderie on the court (especially after the Phoenix game) is something that didn't exist before the trade.
For the second game in a row, ex-starter Marko Jaric graced just the bench with his presence. "Definitely, I don't see it as a compliment," Jaric said, demonstrating his firm grasp of the obvious. He did get to take part in an ESPN Magazine fashion-type photo shoot today.
Tonight was the first of a five consecutive homes game for the team who are currently third place in the northwest division at 4 games under .500. For more info on yet another heartbreaker, check out the Star Tribune.
