Matchups to Watch

Pau Gasol and MVP candidate Kevin Garnett gear up for another classic showdown.

Head Coach: Hubie Brown
<a class="sag" href="#top">Back to Top</a>

Notes
Memphis is coming into the game off a successful home-away-home stretch with victories over Golden State, Washington, and Milwaukee -- three teams not on the same level as Memphis. This afternoon, they get a real test against first-place Minnesota at the Target Center. The Grizz's Friday win over the Bucks matched the franchise record for wins in a season, cementing this year's team as one of the biggest surprises of the season. Pau Gasol and James Posey are taking on the roles of "leaders" on a team full of team players, each posting 20-10 games against Milwaukee.

Injury Report
Mike Miller (back) is a day-to-day. Troy Bell (sore left knee), Theron Smith (back spasms), and Ryan Humphrey (concussion) are on the injured list.

Head Coach: Flip Saunders
<a class="sag" href="#top">Back to Top</a>

Notes
Minnesota is sitting pretty on top of the toughest conference in the NBA, led by all-stars Kevin Garnett and Sam Cassell. They have been dominant at home this year at 18-5, winning their past 14. KG put in a huge performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers with 35 points and a season-high 12 assists.

Injury Report
Troy Hudson (sprained right ankle) is questionable. Michael Olowokandi (right knee surgery) and Wally Szczerbiak (strained left foot) are on the injured list.

Minnesota has always had our number. I don't really have a good feeling about this game, but we have to be due a win against these guys eventually. Our all-time record against the T'Wolves is 4-29.:sour:

We need to stop Cassell or Garnett to win this game. They are the guys that are scoring for the timberwolves. If we only stop one of them we can win this game

I agree. Both of them are hot, and Garnett is gobbling up all the rebounds. He has 11 boards right now, and the next-closest player on either team has 5 (Ervin Johnson). It's up to Jason and Earl to slow Cassell, because we all know there's no stopping KG. Posey has made Sprewell disappear.

We also need a consistent second option right now. Pau's doing fantastic offensively, but we need a second scorer. Stromile has 8 off the bench, but other than that.......

Sam Cassell also has 24 points. 5 TOs, though.

Stromile and JWill are also in double-digits. Posey has held Spree to just 4 measly points.

Miller hits a man-sized three to put the Grizz up by 2.

I'm stunned he's able to play today with all his nagging injurries.

Cassell hits a shot. 26 points for Sam I Am.

Posey comes right back and knocks down a fadeaway to go to 11 on the night.

Cassell travels for his 6th turnover.

Timeout on the floor with 5 minutes remaining. This is going to be a photo finish!
