Wolves 94, Blazers 93

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
On a night when Portland’s ability to pound the offensive glass almost at will -- getting 11 of its 25 fourth-quarter points off of rebounds -- some tough defense by Davis, another clutch fourth-quarter from rookie Randy Foye and a buzzer-beating basket by Garnett was just enough.

KG on the shot that won the game:
I really couldn't see over the hands, so I sorted of faded back a little bit, got it up, and it went in.

Team record: 30-39

Postgame quotes

Randy Foye on his first Target Center game against Brandon Roy, the rookie the team traded for Foye on draft night:
"He's in a great situation, and I'm in a great situation here," Foye said. "We both played well tonight, but luckily we came out with the win. It was fun."

Garnett said that both players will eventually be
"something to be reckoned with.''

Blazers play-by-play voice Mike Barrett writes about the game:
Some have called it the most heart-wrenching loss of the season for the Blazers, and that's not an overstatement.
