In their final regular season game, the Minnesota Timberwolves clinched the #1 seed in the wild wild western conference with a 107-90 rout of the Memphis Grizzlies. As has been noted at nauseum, the Wolves have yet to make it out of the first round in their team history - but that should change this season w/the addition of playoff vets Sam Cassell, Latrell Sprewell, and even head cheerleader Mark Madsen to support soon-to-be-MVP Kevin Garnett, the Big Ticket himself, on his quest for a title. The Wolves will play host to rookie sensation Carmelo Anthony & #8 seed Denver this Sunday (4/18) for game one of that series.

I would have posted The Killers' new single "Somebody Told Me," but the iTunes store accidentally gave me George Michael's live version of "Somebody To Love" instead & I'm still waiting for the Apple support folks to get back to me. As you might imagine, I am not happy. So instead, here's the streaming music video of the Killers song:
