MINNEAPOLIS -- It's the day of the biggest game of the year for the Minnesota Timberwolves, who are watching game tapes of the Chicago Bulls after concluding their morning shoot-around. Several players are bleary-eyed. The desire for most is a quick wrap-up and a speedy departure. And then there's the excitable Kevin Garnett, who can't quite control his loud "ooohs" and "aaahhhs" as he watches Michael Jordan take flight."There will be some times when we're watching tape to scout a game, and he'll see a nice dunk and all of a sudden yell, 'Yo, rewind that, rewind that!

Why go there? Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel Talking trash has always been part of the game. Always will be. Always has to be. But there are lines, and Celtics star Kevin Garnett crossed it if he said what Charlie Villanueva alleges. There were hundreds of other ways to get underneath Villanueva's skin. Villanueva isn't Chris Paul, Deron Williams or David Lee, his peers from the 2005 NBA draft. So make fun of his somewhat underachieving career.

Bulls@Celtics 8 P.M. [ESPN] It doesn't figure to be much of a contest. Boston is even more loaded than when it got off to the sizzling start that allowed the Celts to already clinch a playoff spot. To the Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, the Celtics have now added Sam Cassell (Dunbar). And the Bulls (12 games under .500) - well, they'll always have their memories.

You guys still here? When the going gets tough, as when they lose Game 1 knowing the other coach is 47-0 when his teams win the opener, the tough get going. Either that, or the tough say, "This is still a best-of-seven, right?" "That game counts as one, right?" "That means they still have to beat us three more times, right?" "We can do this!" Not that the Celtics are approaching Game 2 that way. They're not only not worried about Jackson's streak, they thought it was funny when the subject came up Friday.

Pistons@Celtics 8:30 p.m. [ESPN] The Celtics are back home and still reeling from their first playoff loss in Boston since Kevin Garnett was posting up eighth-graders at his junior high. Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen shot a combined 11-for-38 from the field in a Game 4 loss in Detroit that evened the series. That won't get it done.

MEET KEVIN GARNETT Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves is Mr. Everything. The forward led the T-wolves in scoring (20.8 points per game), rebounds (10.4) and blocks (1.77) last season.

LOS ANGELES — Twenty-seven seconds into Game1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, the Lakers' Ron Artest and the Celtics' Paul Pierce became entangled, wrestling each other to the floor and getting double technical fouls. Artest, Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher picked up two fouls in the first quarter, which featured 18 fouls and 20 free throws. It took 35 minutes to play the first quarter, 33 to play the second and 35 to play both the third and fourth. Lakers coach Phil Jackson would prefer the tone of Game 2 on Sunday at the Staples Center be different.

Midnight in Boston? Happily for the Celtics, it's not over when some writer says it's over, but rather when the clock strikes 12. Right now, it's only, say, 11:46 p.m. They have gone 18-18 since Christmas with recent losses to the lowly Nets at home and last week's back-to-back setbacks to the Bucks and Grizzlies. Not that losing by 20 to the Grizzlies was torture, but Celtics coach Doc Rivers called the two-minute warning "the only good message this entire game."

Now for my eagerly awaited midseason predictions, the only ones with a warning label that reads "Discard after Feb. 28, or sooner." It's not that the NBA season is totally meaningless, but it doesn't mean as much as people think. The way it is today isn't the way it was at the start of the season - as you could tell from my preseason picks - and the way it is now isn't the way it will be at the end. A year ago at this time, the Celtics had the best record, 44-11, and were looking forward to an easy closing schedule with 66 days to play their last 29 games.

Dealing with a three-game losing streak, and struggling against a troubled team, Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics turned to their defense to pull out a victory. The Washington Wizards thought the Celtics got some extra help from the referees. Garnett's 19 points led six Celtics in double figures, and Boston limited Washington to 2-for-18 shooting in the fourth quarter en route to a 99-88 victory over the host Wizards on Monday night. "You're playing against the Boston Celtics, so you're not going to get a lot of calls.

"Guys were laughing and joking. I thought that was good for them."
