AP Recap

Box Score

The Hornets...scored the first seven points of the fourth quarter to erase a 66-60 deficit, but the Timberwolves responded with their big run to take control for good.

The Hornets, coming off a poor shooting night in a loss at Phoenix on Wednesday, continued their struggles against the Timberwolves, hitting just 37.8 percent from the floor in the first half. Yet they managed to stay close, in part because Garnett wasn't much of a factor early - he took only five shots and scored seven points.
