Game 32 Final Score: Minnesota Timberwolves 100 - Utah Jazz 98 -- Post Game Thread

Wow! The Minnesota Timberwolves fight back from a big deficit to beat the Utah Jazz when Frodo Baggins Luke Ridnour sank a buzzer beater against our "much improved" defense. The Jazz were up by 9 points with 5:58 remaining and then Head Coach Rick Adelman took a time out. The Wolves never looked back as they managed to win one, despite missing a few free throws down the stretch.

Paul Millsap had 25 and 9, but missed some important shots. Big Al had 18 and 11, with 3 steals. Josh Howard started in place of injured Raja Bell, and rang up 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. Devin Harris almost had a double double, going 10 and 8. There was no bench production to talk about, most likely because the bench played, as a whole, 69 minutes -- the bench is 9 guys. Do the math. Tyrone Corbin, in win now mode, rode the starters -- and we STILL lost. How is that possible? I thought the starters were invincible . . . ?

J.J. Barea had 22 (*cough* OFF THE BENCH *cough*) for Minny, and they got double doubles from Kevin Love (10/10) and Nikola Pekovic (15/12). Ricky Rubio and Luke Ridnour both had 6 assists.

Minny went 11/22 from deep, and we went 1/7. They also went to the line 38 times to our 24, but we were in fouling mode at the end of the game so a lot of those were on purpose. And we lost.

To the Timberwolves.

Happy All-Star Break, Everyone.
