While refusing to go in was was stupid and not atypical for Ricky Davis, I think he's got a beef. Foye is a rookie and I think it's a little early to see him as him the man when Garnetts out. He made some good plays- the late 3 and the assist to Smith- but probaby an equal number of mistakes that could have lost the game in the first ot if not for James miracle 3. Why wasn't James playing point with Foye at the 2 in crunch time? Much of the time I wonder about the stategy in Caseys coaching and see no consistency in his substitutions. I ended up feeling like the loss to Detroit was on the coaches. And every time I see Chauncy come through like he did again last night I think about what might have been as the wolves have shuffled through point guards in recent years.

KG got tossed from the game and your blaming it on the coaching staff?? Pfft.. no offense but I think you need to be thinking a little harder. I was at the game, every second was so intense, it was a grind-it-out defensive night alltogether, and personally, I think, was probably the wolves best performance of the season. That was a playoff calibur game, mad dog even said it himself. Not to mention this particular wolves team has never had to play so long and hard against a team that has had more overtime experience than about 5 wolves teams put together. We fought hard, but in the end, a lack of KG, and a lack of experience playing that late against a team of such a high calibur contributed to the loss more so than anything.

As a Piston fan, I agree with you. Minn. is always sooo close. When will they ever get over the hump? Not sure what they are missing, since I don't follow them. Good team though, and KG is in a league of his own.

Well it's not so much that they cant get over the hump, because really they can, they proved it in the other 4 overtime wins in january. This circumstance just made it that much more difficult for these boys, and therefore we lost.

But now that Ricky Davis won't be around for the phoenix game, Randy Foye will most likely get his first start of the year. Should be an interesting rotation, lotta pressure's gonna be on Bracey Wright to perform well in order to make up for any ground lost by what Ricky has done for us recently as well as Foye, maybe we'll even seen Reed get some minutes while Trenton plays the 2 spot. Could be an interesting game, better be ON THE BALL like no one else, the suns are on a 12 game winning streak, it would be glorious to see the wolves crush it for me.

I think they grew up when they proved to themselves how good they can play after KG was ejected. By the way, that was a pretty good flop, reminded me of a former Piston . Laimbeer.

Yeaah I'm almost just as much of a pistons fan as I am a wolves fan so I loved the old bad boys just as much as these bad boys. They really did grow up last night, and the next step is taking on phoenix without Ricky Davis. I think we can pull it off, Phoenix does not play hardly any defense, but we cannot let them get out in transition, they will kill us on fastbreaks if we don't stay on the ball defensively; no slacking for a second.

I think the last play of the first OT really baffled me. Trenton Hassell didn't have any ball pressure and Chauncey's three was pretty much uncontested, atleast get a hand up!!! the wolves had that game in hand, and they shot themselves in the foot by giving a mvp calibur player like billups that shot.

Even though we lost I was pleased that we still played hard and almost won that game. They could've easily just chucked up shots,but they played very smart,in the end Billups really shouldn't have been open,but I think we were robbed of that win anyway,if KG didnt get ejected we def would've won that game,but all in all we just didn't have any answer for the 2nd ot. It was a hreatbreaking loss,but I still like the way we played in the end.

James had a hand up on Chauncey, Chauncey just made a great shot.

How long was KG suspended for?

just one game and so was ricky,but about that shot,billups should've never been able to get that open that easily they should've been able to foul him before he made it to the 3pt line but oh well the game is over
