In what has been an otherwise disappointing season, the Minnesota Timberwolves rose to the occasion on Tuesday to beat the Los Angeles Lakers. It was a thrilling double overtime win in which the whole team contributed to the winning effort. It was not the sloppy uninspired play that has plagued the Wolves the last month. Instead it was a game that had an NBA Playoff atmosphere. Maybe the Minnesota Timberwolves have started to understand that their backs are against the wall and that they need to go on a roll in order to make the playoffs this year.
The cherry on the top was that Kobe Bryant(Biggest jerk in the NBA) was suspended for one game for his bush league foul against Mark Jaric. He has a history of pulling that kind of crap and the league finally called him out on it. I hope this game was a sign of great things to come for Kevin Garnett, Ricky Davis and the rest of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
