Wolves 75, Rockets 82

AP Recap

Box Score

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
In their 82-75 loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night at the Toyota Center, the Wolves looked entirely capable of staging yet another fourth-quarter thrill ride, not unlike their comeback efforts against the Los Angeles Clippers (good) and the Dallas Mavericks (not good enough). They turned a 54-47 deficit into a 68-68 tie with plenty of time to spare. They sank 10 of their 14 shots over the final 12 minutes.

But they couldn't shut down Houston's attack, especially from the outside. The Rockets, who took 25 three-pointers in the game and made 10, went 4-for-6 in that fourth quarter, including three in rapid succession that snuffed Minnesota's rally.

Tonight's loss puts the Wolves at 6-8.
