MINNEAPOLIS -- There's the predictable excitement out West, what with the Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs all bunched atop the conference. But look more closely, and another team, the Minnesota Timberwolves, is tucked right in there, battling with all the usual suspects for Western supremacy. "Being respectful, I would say, `Thank you, but that's our goal,' " said forward Kevin Garnett. "We don't want to be one of the best, but the best. From a mental standpoint and from a physical standpoint, we go out every day in practice and try to reach that goal.

SEATTLE -- When he takes the court these days, Kevin McHale looks like a man toe-dipping his way into an ice cold pool. His steps are tentative and he often winces. Just last week, he spun himself into the lane during a scrimmage, a move he has made perhaps a million times, but his shot barely nicked the rim and he came away limping.McHale's daily battle against the inexorable deterioration of his left ankle has come to mirror that of the Celtics.The team's difficult struggle against its own obvious decline has never been more evident than on the just-completed road trip, which included lopsided defeats at Utah, Sacramento, Seattle and a six-point loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Douglas was expected to make his Celtics debut last night at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks.Douglas is young (25) and talented, but his days were numbered in Miami when he criticized the team's front office last fall during a two-month contract dispute.

BOSTON -- The Boston fans chanted it like a mantra: "LAR-RY! LAR-RY!"And until the fourth quarter of last night's Game 5, when it appeared that all had been lost for the Celtics, Larry Bird did little to answer their petitions.Larry Legend had become Larry, legend? Bird would shoot after the chant, and the fans would respond, "OOHHHH!"Then, as quickly as you can say mystique, Bird answered the call and an 18-point lead never disappeared so fast.The Celtics, inspired by Bird (16 points) and Reggie Lewis (30)

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat pulled the first major trade of the NBA season Friday in exchanging point guards Brian Shaw and Sherman Douglas, but it raised major questions on both sides.Miami's desire to trade Douglas was understandable after the Washington native sat out the first two months of the season in a salary dispute. The Heat was forced to match the Los Angeles Lakers' offer sheet of $16.6 million for the next seven years.But Miami's surprising success with rookie Steve Smith, a converted shooting guard, running its offense, made Douglas expendable.
