Darko and his Dreaded Flip Shots



Milicic has driven Wolves fans crazy with his insistence on scoring with little flip shots around the basket when he seemingly could easily dunk the ball. Far too often, those shots come bouncing right back at him.

On Friday, he left no room for doubt.



SALT LAKE CITY - One would think it'd be hard to lose somebody who stands 7 feet tall, but you sure could say Timberwolves center Darko Milicic got lost in the joyous tumult of his team's buzzer-beating victory over the Clippers in Los Angeles on Friday night.

Kevin Love's deep, winning three-point shot and Ricky Rubio's fourth-quarter play received all the highlight reel love, but it was Milicic's active, physical defensive play against Clippers star Blake Griffin -- not to mention his two blocked shots on Griffin or a 22-point scoring night -- that left Wolves coach Rick Adelman calling him "a real difference maker."

Milicic even seemed to play a little angry, both muscling up Griffin at every turn and abusing the rim with four -- count 'em, four -- slam dunks on Friday.

"That's what he has to do," Adelman said. "He's got to be aggressive. We need him to play that way every night."

"The finger roll kinda didn't work for me, so I tried that," said Milicic, who drew undersized center Al Jefferson as his defensive assignment Saturday. "It works, huh?"

KG can teach him to play angry better than anyone not named Perk. But he trays that little flip shot around KG and it may be his last.

Well, at least he plays defense. That's a little less depressing.
