Minnesota Timberwolves' 19 year-old rookie Zach LaVine became the second youngest player in NBA history to win the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest, and the first Minnesota player since Isaiah Rider in 1994. Check out these highlights from Zach's amazing performance last night.
The Hawks were as good as advertised, shooting 51.2% from the floor, 47.6% from beyond the arc and 95% from the free-throw line. Every starter scored in double figures, with Al Horford leading the way with 28 points.
The Minnesota Timberwolves (11-40) extended their longest winning streak of the season to three games with a 112-101 win over the Detroit Pistons (20-32) last night in the Motor City. Nikola Pekovic led the Wolves in scoring with 29 points and Kevin Martin added 24 more.
The Minnesota Timberwolves (10-40) hung tough all night with the number-two team in the West; the Memphis Grizzlies (37-13) tonight at the Target Center, ending Memphis' 8-game winning streak with a 90-89 Minnesota win. Memphis had won 17 of the last 20 games against the Wolves. It marks Minnesota's first 2-game win streak of the season.
The Minnesota Timberwolves picked up their ninth win of the season by finishing strong in a 102-101 win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday night at Target Center.
The Wolves closed out the Heat with 26 points in the fourth quarter while also playing strong defense in holding Miami to just 18 points in the final stanza.
For a second straight game the Wolves kept it close against a playoff team but fell just short in the end. Minnesota trailed by just two points after a pair of Mo Williams free throws with 1:52 left in the fourth quarter but failed to make another basket in the contest.
Kevin Martin scored 21 points in 29 minutes of play in his first game back for the Wolves following wrist surgery in November. Six other Wolves scored in double figures including Gorgui Djeng, who scored 16 points and pulled down 14 rebounds
