Wolves 94, Lakers 111

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Through three quarters, Minnesota was humming along at 61.7 percent field-goal shooting (37 of 60). Its jump shots were things of beauty, with GPS systems to boot.

Then, in the fourth, the Wolves made only two of their 19 attempts. They got outscored 34-7 in their most miserable 12 minutes of their 2006-07 season. So far. Seven points in a quarter?

Gee, maybe the Wolves could have used Allen Iverson after all.

Box Score

"We went from diving on the floor and being really scrappy in this game to, I looked up and we were down," Garnett said. "It's very frustrating."

"We can't keep depending on our coaches to make decisions," Garnett said. "We've got to use our IQs and our basketball knowledge to figure things out and maybe call timeouts and maybe go to a zone."
