Wolves 94, Pistons 90 OT

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Foye's trials and tribulations defined the game's last 17 minutes. In marital terms, he went from honeymoon to something out of Jason & Joumana Kidd's playbook and back again...

Other Wolves had big nights: Ricky Davis scored 21 and shared time with Trenton Hassell defending both Hamilton and Prince. Hassell had eight offensive rebounds among his season-high 11 and missed only one of eight shots in scoring 15 points. Garnett had 19 points, 14 rebounds and two golden missed-opportunities to attack the rim in overtime, but he sank the two free throws in OT and had a hand in Wallace's 1-for-11 day.

But as long as Mike James continues his tentative play, so much of what the Wolves accomplish will hinge on Foye and his learning curve.

Postgame quotes

Said Garnett: "One thing that Randy has is [our] confidence. ... The more aggressive he is, the easier it is on all of us. He's already drawing a crowd, he's already won a game, he has some experience under his belt, he has some confidence. He's not cocky, but he walks with a little swag. He needs that.
"We don't baby him ... He takes his lumps. But it's all to make him potentially what he could be."
