Post-scuffle reactions

If you haven't already seen it, Need4Sheed has video of the incident between Garnett and McDyess during last night's game.

Flip Saunders on whether he though the players would be suspended for their actions in last night's game:
"No. Not at all. I can't see that happening."

Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune with his take on possible penalties:
A fine is almost certain, a suspension probable, although coach Dwane Casey did some postgame damage control.

"I don't think it was a fight. It was more of a commotion afterwards than a skirmish," Casey said. "It's tough to lose your leader like that, but you win together, you lose together."

The game recap at the Timberwolves site says the incident was "at its simplest a man sticking up for his teammate."
(In the same article, Randy Foye refers to Garnett as "Big Fella.")
