Wolves in six games

Almost three weeks ago, I predicted that the Dallas Mavericks would beat the Sacramento Kings in six games in the first round of the Western Conference play-offs. Ultimately, Bibby's play and the lack of size in the Dallas front line were the Mavericks' undoing.

While I think that the Kings can beat the Wolves, I am not optimistic. The nexus of Kevin Garnett's MVP season with Chris Webber's negative impact on the flow of the King's game should give the Wolves the edge in the series. With commissioner David Stern there to present Garnett with his MVP trophy before tonight's game, I expect the Wolves to come out on a huge emotional high at the beginning of the first game.

My prediction for the Western Conference semifinal series is the Wolves in six games.
