Wolves 109, Celtics 107

After 2.5 hours of nothing but uncertainty, the Celtics' losing streak was extended to 18 games.

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Davis went freeze-frame on the follow-through of his wide-open jumper from 18 feet, fairly confident with just 0.2 seconds left that he had broken a few hearts right behind him on the Boston Celtics' bench. Then Wolves center Mark Blount rushed over and embraced Davis, two former Celtics celebrating their team's 109-107 victory at Target Center on Sunday evening as if Bird, McHale and Parish still were around, as if something vital had been at stake.

From Britt Robson/City Pages:
Wittman said he went with his gut in starting Randy Foye in place of Mike James for the first time this season. He could have gone with his ears, hearing the near-unanimous chorus that a change at the point was necessary.
