The Wolves Host The Grizzlies

In their last game of the season, the Wolves face the Grizzlies at home on Tuesday night.

"We're taking the court to win," coach Dwane Casey said after Tuesday's practice. "I've said that the last couple weeks. These young guys ... they deserve to win. They're out there fighting, scrapping.
"I'm sure everyone in the world is aware of the standings, but again we'd be going against what we stand for to say, 'Hey, we're going out there and giving up the game.'"

The Grizzlies' win over the Clippers tonight gives them the 5th seed in the Western Conference playoffs and will take them to Dallas to face the Mavs. Pau Gasol sat out the game with a "sore left foot" and is listed as day to day which might mean no superstars on the court in the Target Center tomorrow night.

The Star Tribune gives a recap of the season including positives, negatives, and "must-fixes" as well as some predictions for the post-season.

Here's a link in which you can submit suggestions to the team on the songs you want played during the games. I wish I'd found this earlier in the season as perhaps something could have been done about the fact that those godawful tv theme songs seem to make up the bulk of the music played.
