Timberwolves vs. Nuggets: A Comedy of Errors

Why do the two most disappointing teams of the season thus far have the biggest rivalry? Does this seem asinine to anyone else? What were they fighting over - which team could stay at .500 the least? This felt more like Todd Bridges vs. Vanilla Ice than Ali vs. Frazier - two B-list teams fighting a B-list brawl. Personally, I'd rather have seen Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan go at it after the questionable non-call on offensive interference in the 4th.

After the game, Michael Cooper said, "It was almost like a playoff finals game." Umm more like a Round One playoff game, and the Nuggets aren't even there anymore (12th seed currently). Hey Coop, why don't you get your team in playoff contention first. Lakers-Kings circa 2002 you are not.

On a bright note, at least they didn't have to use a taser on Olowokandi to get him off the court!
