Wolves Updates 3/23

Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune on Randy Foye:
Foye has had a knack for saving his best for last. So far, 49 percent of his points have come in fourth quarters and overtimes. At those times, he has made 48 percent of his shots, 40 percent of his three-pointers and 91.4 percent of his free throws.

From Britt Robson/On The Ball:
The less said about the playoffs, the better. One, it isn't going to happen. Two, if it does, the Wolves will lose a draft pick and suffer enormous embarrassment on a national stage in the first round, goading KG in the direction of bolting.

David DuPree/USA Today writes that "Garnett is having an MVP-like season, yet it is largely unnoticed." DuPress also has the following from Kevin McHale regarding trading the player:
"You can never get equal value for a player of Kevin's ability," McHale said. "How would we be better without him?"

Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press on Garnett getting his 12th technical foul of the season on Wednesday night:
For reaching that number, Garnett will receive a warning letter from the league stating he will be assessed an automatic one-game suspension if he reaches 16 technicals during the regular season.

Stephen Litel/City Pages Sports blog believes that "it looks as if James found something on this road trip to finally build upon."

David Berri/Wages Of Wins blog talks a bit more about his post on the team being "consistently unproductive."

Ricky Davis on the Wolves coaching change:
"We still get paid a lot of money to go out and do what we do," Davis said. "But we were 50 percent (under Casey). ... We had a good vibe with Casey, and we have a good vibe with (Wittman) too. I think everybody accepted Casey being the coach, and everybody accepted him being fired, too."
