Despite Minnesota’s 117-95 road loss in Philly, players were happy KAT “stood his ground.”
After being ejected, the two centers engaged in a late-night war of words, to everyone’s amusement.
“Good for KAT,” one Timberwolf texted from the locker room. “I’m happy he stood his ground.”
[Jeff] Teague had perhaps the most revealing quote of the night when it came to the fight.
“As you can see tonight, he’s got a lot of fight in him,” Teague said. “Last year, I wouldn’t say he wouldn’t do that or he would’ve took it, but he’s here to make a statement. I think tonight it just showed a lot of heart.
“I’m riding with him.”
