Need I say more than a picture of Ricky Davis landing after slamming it down against the Celtics? Need I say more that merely imagining such an image at the beginning of the NBA season would fill me with dread and horror? Alright, I will.
In the first meeting of the two teams since last week's trade, the Minnesota Timberwolves demolished the Boston Celtics in Minneapolis, 110-85. Former Celtic Marcus Banks, who had been written off by the Celtics coaching staff during his stay in Boston, electified the home crowd with a virtuoso 20 point, 6 assist performance. The Timberwolves also received strong contributions from Mark Blount (16 points, 10 rebounds), Ricky Davis (9 points, 5 assists, 5 steals) and Justin Reed (9 points).
The Celtics got 22 points out of Wally Szczerbiak, and a whopping 2 points out of celebrated draft bust Michael Olowokandi, which is 32 points less than what the former Celtics dropped on their old team.
I just don't get Danny Ainge's method to his madness.
