Preseason: Wolves 109, Bull 105 OT

The Bulls dropped another preseason game to the Wolves at the Target Center tonight.

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
The Wolves beat the Bulls 109-105 in overtime after letting a seven-point fourth-quarter lead slip away.

Eddie Griffin, who finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds in 23 minutes, had five of those points, three rebounds and a block in overtime. Foye finished with 14 points. Ricky Davis scored a game-high 25 points on 8-for-11 shooting.

From the AP recap:
Ben Gordon's offensive struggles continued for a third straight game, and the former UConn star's frustration manifested itself in other ways. Gordon picked up a technical foul in the first quarter after a little skirmish under the basket, then tussled again with Kevin Garnett in the third.

Both stars went after a loose ball and wound up tangled together. Gordon appeared to give a little extra shove as he tried to get to his feet, which irked Garnett. The two players jawed for a moment before Garnett won the jump ball.

Gordon later shoved Griffin in the backcourt after Griffin tried to set a screen and trash talked a little with Timberwolves center Mark Blount after a confrontation under the Chicago basket.

Along with Marko Jaric (who is a very sharp dresser) and Mad Dog (who should let Marko take him shopping), T-Hud sat out after twisting his good ankle in practice.
Hudson: "It's just a tweak. If it were the regular season I'd tape it up extra tight and go."
