Will Adelman be Fined for Comments?
Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman usually is a man of few words and even fewer expressions – unless you consider a sigh and slumped shoulders much of one – when he works the sidelines nightly.
But he had plenty to say when he pursued the game officials after Sunday’s 94-91 loss to Knicks at Madison Square Garden, and very little had anything to do with early Christmas wishes.
At the end, he pointed out how officials consulted after the final buzzer to determine if the Knicks were due two more free throws in a game already decided.
“I’m glad they got that last call right, and I’m glad they waited five minutes to make sure that the game was over,” Adelman said in a terse postgame address that lasted fewer than 30 seconds. “That was good. It really made a big difference, making sure they got that one right. That’s all I have to say. I’m not going to get fined, so I’m sorry.”
