Wolves 98, Blazers 101 OT

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Successful all night in running plays at the end of quarters, the Wolves got one last chance with 12.3 seconds left in the extra session, trailing 99-98. But Ricky Davis fired from 23 feet out on the right wing with eight seconds to spare. Portland's Zach Randolph got fouled and hit both free throws, and the Wolves hurried downcourt in search of a three-pointer. Kevin Garnett launched one from out front but it hit off the back rim.

"I felt these guys deserved to walk out of the building with a win tonight," Wittman said.
