Wolves 109, Nets 98

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Outscoring the Nets 37-21 across the final 12 minutes, the Wolves were able, finally, to put their stamp on a game that repeatedly eluded them over the first three periods and win, 109-98.

Garnett grabbed his 10,000th career rebound during the game. In doing so, he became the 32nd player in league history to reach that mark.

"We're not predicting on how we're going to win," Garnett said. "In this case, it's what you have to do to win those games. If that means that it comes down to one of those bar fights or grind-it-out, 48-minute plus games, if it's what we have to do to win, it's what we have to do."

For the first time this season, the Wolves won a game by more than six points.
