Wolves 91, Bulls 81

The Wolves went for a 4th consecutive victory in Chicago tonight, snapping the Bull's 7 game winning streak.

From the Star Tribune:
They again played well defensively, holding the Bulls to 39.5 percent shooting and a combined 36 points in the first and last quarters. They showed sparks offensively at just the right moments, too, and got a maestro-like game from Kevin Garnett with 18 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.

Box Score

"There are not many guys who can post, step out and do all the things he can do, all-defensive, good off the ball," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said of Garnett. "He's one of the greatest players ever."

Garnett commented on the win and Iverson rumors:
"We're making strides," he said. "As a team, collectively, we're forming some chemistry. There's no definites that we're going to continue to play like this. But right now, we're in a nice rhythm. We're knowing how to play with each other.

"A move such as the one you're talking about, with A.I., you get massive talent. A person who has been in the league, a special scorer who can fit right into that. So either way, we're going to build. We go on, and the flip side is you get an unbelievable talent who comes in and fits right into what we're doing."
