“That team we had that year was a special team,” Wittman said. “One that we didn’t get to finish the deal, but one that we took this franchise the farthest it has ever been and was on cusp of making the finals.”

One more comeback story

Former Wolves swingman Martell Webster returned to Target Center — but his Mohawk hairdo didn’t, thankfully — as well on Wednesday. He came back healthy and starting and shooting 45.2 percent on threes after suffering through two injury-filled seasons at Minnesota that forced the Wolves to strike a financial compensation deal with Portland.

The Wolves contended the Blazers traded them damaged goods in the June 2010 trade that brought Webster to Minnesota.

“He’s a good player and he’s having a good year for them, shooting in the 40s [percentage] for the threes,” Wolves coach Rick Adelman said. “I think last year because of the injuries and his rhythm he still shot 35 percent, which would be historic for us.”
