(Sorry--I'm a geek.)
On the flip-side of that (as opposed to the Flip-side) are the Wolves. They're languishing. They're losing. They suck.
But they don't--not really. They've been in every game. Until the last few minutes of each contest, they've been in a position to pull it out--but they haven't. Last night they got a bunch of great performances (like and such as: 20 points and 9 rebounds from my favorite player, Craig "The Rhino" Smith, and 18 rebounds from rookie Corey Brewer), but still lost. It's tough, but they're not a terrible team.
But right now the Wolves are 2-15 and the Celtics are 15-2. And both of those numbers are due to Kevin Garnett. His absence and his presence.
