Wolves 100, Bulls 98

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
...if not for Randy Foye's floater from the right side with 1.8 seconds left, lifting the Wolves to a 100-98 victory in a game they once had led by 25 points. Foye scored a career-high 25, and wound up in the middle of things moments later.

Box Score

Garnett on almost blowing another double-digit 4th quarter lead:
"We have to figure it out as a team," Garnett said. "I'm sure the coaching staff has to do some things to adjust and make things easier on everybody else, but as players everyone has to do what they can to sustain the lead and stay aggressive in there."

On Foye and his winning shot:
"I just want you all to know that the young fellow has confidence in him," said Kevin Garnett, who played great (as usual) on his way to 26 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists. "What's even bigger than that is that (the) veterans have confidence in him as well. Tonight is a prime example of us trusting him, and him coming through."
