Wolves Updates 1/11

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:

KG on his increased playing time due to the OT games:
"I'm getting heavy minutes," Garnett said before the game. "But Case [coach Dwane Casey] has done a better job this year of scaling back a little bit.

I started to think Case was in the Army for a minute, the way we was playing and the way we was practicing."

Garnett says he's "always looked up to" Chris Webber.

Randy Foye says that when he first met Sam Cassell in November, the veteran talked to him "about a few things" and told him to "keep on working."

He also said that the team's management doesn't really understand that it's time to rebuild yet and that they need "to look in the mirror and be honest about where they are."

Sam Smith/Chicago Tribune fields a couple question regarding the Bulls and Garnett. In one of his answers, he writes that he's "convinced the Timberwolves will keep Garnett..."
