When Kevins collide: KG gets the better of Love

MINNEAPOLIS It's the most confusing of coincidences, a franchise defined by two players who share little more than a first name. That name, Kevin, has forced two men together when little else besides Minnesota links them. It joins the hope of the present with the standard set by the fading past, and with each passing season, fewer Kevin Garnett jerseys dot the stands of the...

Wolves dealt with multiple nagging ailments

MINNEAPOLIS Dressed in street clothes on the Timberwolves' bench, Nikola Pekovic must be in pain.

Pekovic never fell. He was never powerless to get up off the court, and the drama of his...

Wolves losing offensive punch amid injuries

MINNEAPOLIS Anthony Tolliver has seen this before, the scrambling and renegotiating, the rehab and health updates.

Ice is back with a not-so-new invention

MINNEAPOLIS It looked a lot like the 1990s on Friday night at the Target Center. With Kevin Garnett on the court and Vanilla Ice performing at halftime, it hardly seemed like 2012, and the anachronism was nothing if not entertaining. It was enough for Minnesota Timberwolves guard Martell Webster to yell, Ice, ice baby, in the locker room before the game, dancing and moving with...

Timberwolves-Trail Blazers Preview

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Minnesota. The debate before Friday night's game at Target Center was whether Kevin Garnett in his prime or Kevin Love as a 23-year-old stats monster was the best player in Timberwolves history. ...
