I think there is some validity to that. Yeah, Sprewell and Cassell have been far in the playoffs but there's something to be said about going far in
the playoffs as a team. And this is the first year with this new nucleus.
I think it showed in Game 1 with KG's subpar performance and Sprewell didn't even look to shoot the ball in the 2nd half. Cassell showed up as the
only one of the "Big Three" with rings and it showed with his 40.

a huge statement for sure this sereis is going 7
I don't think we're getting ahead of ourselves. We're just as confident that we're going to win this series as Minnesota fans are their team is going
to win this series.
I never said this series would be easy. It won't be. It'll be long and hard fought and I'll go with Kings in 7.
I expect the Wolves to come out on fire and with desperation in their eyes as a lot of people really think they need this game. I would tend to agree
but like I said before the Kings are winless at Arco this year against Minnesota so I don't know how much of a must-win this game really is as the
Timberwolves could come into Arco and win two.
With Bibby and Cassell, I expect the Timberwolves to do something different with that this time like put Hassell on Bibby to start with. That's where
we need Peja Stojakovic to come up and show up big time.
And nice of Vlade Divac to finally show up for the playoffs in Game 1. 10 points in the 1st Quarter.
