Box Score

From Steve Aschburner:
On Tuesday, the Wolves looked as road weary as Willy Loman squeezing in one more sales stop. They again came out as if they weren't really ready to play and wound up trailing wire-to-wire for the second game in a row...

The Wolves' biggest problem in this one was Andrew Bynum, the 19-year-old man-child in the middle who set career highs in both points (20) and rebounds (19)...

"We knew this was going to be a tough road trip coming in," said coach Dwane Casey, whose team packed five games into the season's first seven nights. "We know we have some work to do. Keep pushing. We're a work in progress ... like 85-90 percent of the teams."
