Redick details double technicals with Saunders

With about a minute left in the Los Angeles Clippers' 110-105 win Monday over the Timberwolves, J.J. Redick and Flip Saunders received double technical fouls. Here's what Redick had to say after the game: "I think there was a foul (on Kevin Garnett) on the play. I was kind of walking to get to my spot on free-throw line, and Flip was on the court -- I'm not sure why he was on the court. He was yelling and stuff, and I said (to an official), 'Get him off the court.' And Flip turned to me and said, 'Man, shut […] The post Redick details double technicals with Saunders appeared first on...

Timberwolves: Kevin Garnett's resistance to Celtics trade puzzled Rivers

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was concerned about Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett's mental state when he held up the trade from Minnesota to Boston.

Garnett on Rivers

Timberwolves power forward Kevin Garnett shared the influence Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers had on his 20-year career. Garnett and Rivers will square off Monday at Target Center. The two were on the same side with the Boston Celtics from 2007 to 2013, including winning the NBA title in 2008. "Doc had a huge impact in my career," Garnett said after Monday's shoot-around. "Teaching us the true meaning of teamwork, teammates and having pride and playing for the next guy. Great time in my life, times I will never forget. Monumental times. Some of the best times of my […] The post...

A visual guide to Kevin Garnett's defense

Kevin Garnett still gets it done on the defensive end, and here's the walkthrough to prove it When the Wolves first traded Thaddeus Young for Kevin Garnett, there were plenty of critics who didn't like the deal because they believed Minnesota had sent away a player who was useful for a player who wasn't. They were...and are....wrong. We looked at how Kevin Garnett is still a top rebounder and defender earlier. He's still averaging 12 rebounds/36 minutes, and still ranks in the top 20 (if you remove the minutes played qualification) in a number of defensive categories, including defensive...

Grizzlies squeak past Wolves, 101-97

KG was ejected early in the third quarter after picking up his second technical foul from referee Bennett Salvatore, much to the dissatisfaction of a sold out Target Center. Marc Gasol led the way for the Grizzlies, Mike Conley knocked down the go-ahead 3-pointer with 30 seconds remaining, and Kevin Martin missed an open corner three that would have tied the game. Close, but no cigar. MINNEAPOLIS – The Wolves forced a season-high 24 turnovers on Saturday night in front of a packed house, and second consecutive sellout at Target Center since Kevin Garnett's return, but Kevin Martin's...

More on Garnett's technical and ejection

Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders took issue with the interpretation of Kevin Garnett's intent when he slammed the basketball onto the floor and drew his second technical foul, and thus, an ejection in Saturday's 101-97 loss to Memphis. "Their argument was that you can't do that. My argument, by the rulebook, states that any action has to be in resentment to the call or a no call," Saunders said in the postgame presser. "What he did is he bounced the ball because he was frustrated with himself that he made a foul. In no way was it a resentment. You can […] The post More on Garnett's...
