Wolves 117, Lakers 107 2OT

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
Don't know if anything about this game can be called smooth. Thrilling? Yes. The game had more runs than an old stocking. In the second quarter alone the Wolves and Lakers traded 12-0 runs.

And while there is no recent precedent to suggest this will be a corner-turning victory, it certainly was uplifting. The Wolves became the third team in NBA history to play back-to-back two-overtime games; They earned today's day off.

“Tonight's win was the definition of a team win," said Garnett. "It wasn't one or two people. We needed a win. It couldn't have come at a better time."

"This was really a team win," concluded Wittman. "I think everyone really contributed that played in the game. We had guys that struggled, but our other guys picked them up. That was encouraging to see."
