48MOH Grade Book – Coach Popovich with an A+. How you ask? "Managed to rest guys while still getting Leonard some extra burn. He took advantage of the butt-whoopin’, raised an early white flag and got some time for those bench guys."
Gregg Popovich - ''They beat us in every facet of the game,'' Popovich said. ''They basically forced us to lay an egg. We were awful and a lot of it was because of their aggressiveness.''
Rick Adelman - ''Tonight what I like about him is he came off and looked for the 15-foot jumper,'' Wolves coach Rick Adelman said of Rubio. ''He was under control, he was able to get his feet under him and shot it well.''
Typo or intentional? "The Wolves out-rebounded the Spurts by 15 tonight." Only Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune knows for sure.

To rest or not to rest, that is the question. Things to consider: Fresh Legs – Element of Surprise (against future playoff opposition) – Confidence Builder (Bench).
