Who's That?
Is that you, Nick? Welcome back. You're right (of course), last night's win was very large - if they can win out. I don't think they have the luxury of another loss. There are two teams on their heels, Sacramento and San Antonio. If either of them win out, and the Wolves lose one, we'll be out of first. Sacramento, a half game back, has 4 games remaining (@Pho, LAL, @Den, @GS). They're tied with Minnesota in losses, so if they both win the rest, Minnesota has the tiebreaker (3-1 head-to-head). San Antonio is a game and a half back, but if the Wolves lose one and the Spurs win the rest they finish tied and San Antonio wins the tiebreaker (2-2 head-to-head, better conference record). San Antonio has an easier schedule (Por, @LAC, @Por, Den) than Sacto.

And I don't even want to think what two losses might mean .... "It means bankruptcy and scandal and prison. That's what it means. One of us is going to jail, well it's not gonna be me."

KG, I'm sure, is doing his best Maggie Thatcher, "Look guys, this is no time to go wobbly." Tonight (@GS - did you know they're 1-2 against Golden State?) will be difficult because of last night's game, but they had 4 days off prior to last night. Hopefully the bench can contribute more tonight.
