Kevin Martin says he won't cut corners

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) In the final game of last season, and the final game of Rick Adelman's coaching career, Kevin Martin went down swinging.

While most of the Minnesota Timberwolves slogged through one last game in a massively disappointing season, Martin went after the Utah Jazz. He scored a season-high 36 points, attacked the rim to get to the free throw line for 10 shots and even came up with a couple of steals before fouling out in a rare show of aggression on the defensive end from him.

Martin was one of the few players on the roster who had a long history with Adelman, having played for him in Sacramento and Houston as well, and he didn't want to see his coach end his career with a loss. Looking back on it now, it was an approach that Martin wishes he would've taken much more often during his first season in Minnesota.
