Wolves 77, Heat 92

From Britt Robson/On The Ball:
The Timberwolves were being blown off the court by the supposedly aged Miami Heat. In the space of 67 whirlwind seconds, the Heat had stolen passes, leaked out on Minnesota's missed shots, and just generally hustled themselves into four layups, turning a three-point deficit into double digits in a blink, running the score to 10-21 with 3:26 to go in the first quarter. It was the latest shoulda-been embarrassment for the club that knows no shame.

Team record: 30-42

"Energy was not there at the start," coach Randy Wittman said. "You can't come out lackadaisical at the start of games."
