Quick timeout by Monty after #Pelicans get beat on backdoor cut by Zach LaVine. NOLA still leads 12-6 after sloppy play by both sides

Jason Calmes

LaVine cut beats Gordon, flushes it home. You don't have to respect his shot.

Jimmy Smith

Today's #TWolves starters: Wiggins, Payne, Dieng, LaVine, Brown.

Jonathan Feigen

With Wiggins, LaVine, Johnson and McDaniels on the court together, how about we cancel the last 77 secs for a dunk contest?

Jon Krawczynski

Josh Smith had LaVine in the post and kicked it to Pablo for 3 and Pablo shot it rather than re-feeding him.

Calvin Watkins

Rockets-Wolves lineups: HOU: Ariza, Smith, Howard, Harden and Terry. MINN: Wiggins, Payne, Dieng, Lavine and Brown.

Eric Pincus

So the Zach LaVine play where Clarkson was fouled for the FT was ruled correct - thus the game winning FT kosher

Eric Pincus

According to the NBA's review - one of Jordan Clarkson's traveling calls was incorrect - LaVine knocked the ball away first

Andy Greder

#Twolves Now blog: Flip Saunders called it a foul on deciding play in OT loss to #Lakers; Zach LaVine disagreed. blogs.twincities.com/timberwolves/2…

Andy Greder

Final: #Lakers 101, #Twolves 99 OT. Gorgui Dieng tied game at 99, but Jordan Clarkson drew a foul from Zach LaVine and hit two free-throws.

Mike Trudell

Ellington had his shot blocked, but Clarkson got the board and got shoved in the back by LaVine with 0:00.3 left. Clarkson hit the 2 FT's.

Gary Lee

Zach LaVine misses the three, but it appears Chase Budinger stepped out of bounds on that rebound as refs are going to review the call.

Eric Pincus

LaVine missed a wide open corner 3 - Budinger rebound - on review if he stepped out

Mike Trudell

Minnesota's 19th TO is a Wiggins travel, and Clarkson answered with a layup with 34.5 seconds left to put LAL up 2. LaVine let him fly by.

Gary Lee

Bad call, ref. Jordan Clarkson didn't travel as Zach LaVine hit the ball.

Gary Lee

Zach LaVine makes both free throws as Lakers lead 90-87 with 40.0 left.

Mike Trudell

Two Zach LaVine FT's with 0:48.6 seconds left cut LAL's lead to 3 at 90-87. Lakers ball.

Mike Trudell

LaVine (5 of 16) has stalled Minnesota's offense, missing 4 straight shots going 1 on 1, but Wiggins tied the game at 85 with 2:24 to play.

Gary Lee

Not the most exciting game tonight, but this Jordan Clarkson-Zach LaVine matchup right now should be fun.

Andy Greder

Half: #Lakers 49, #Twolves 43. Andrew Wiggins leads all scorers with 10 points, Zach LaVine with 9, Chase Budinger adds 8.

Andy Greder

End 1Q: #Lakers 24, #Twolves 15. Los Angeles uses 8-0 run to end period. Andrew Wiggins with six points; Zach LaVine added five.

Mike Trudell

Clarkson has stepped up his interior D the last few games, with 3 blocks last night and an early swat of a driving LaVine tonight.

Gary Lee

I actually wanted to see Kevin Garnett play in a T-Wolves uniform tonight, but Jordan Clarkson vs. Andrew Wiggins/Zach LaVine works, too.

Gary Lee

Jordan Clarkson with the dunk and I'd like him to go head-to-head in a dunk contest with Zach LaVine instead.

Mike Trudell

We're underway in Minnesota, where rookie Zach LaVine opens the scoring w/a 3. Minnesota has 8 available healthy bodies, LAL essentially 9.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Rookie rank: 1 Noel, 2 Wiggins, 3 Payton, 4 Mirotic, 5 Nurkic, 6 Clarkson, 7 Smart, 8 LaVine, 9 Bogdanovic, 10 Black. on.nba.com/1HFlR7a

In an interview, Mario Hezonja ('95) says after he watched LaVine, next day he repeated all 3 winning dunks of LaVine without any problems.

Enzo Flojo

So, apparently, Zach Lavine does more than dunk basketballs! 27pts!!! #everybodyup

Jerry Zgoda

LaVine's two 3s there near end of regulation came, btw, after he forced a shot and committed a foul when there was no reason to do so

Steve Luhm

Minnesota rookies Wiggins/LaVine both just turned 20. They have combined for 48 points in 17 of 36 shooting going into OT tonight.

Royce Young

Zach LaVine pulls up from the mountains and ties the game! vine.co/v/OYlQPH9aJAx Two huge 3s in the final 30 seconds of regulation.

Jon Krawczynski

Have to keep LaVine in an attack mode position to get the best out of him. That's where he belongs

Jerry Zgoda

LaVine's 2 clutch 3s in final 25 seconds sends Wolves' Super Eight into OT at Utah tied at 96.

Darren Wolfson

Ridiculous 13 sec. for LaVine. Horrible shot followed by a really bad foul. Then makes two three-ptrs, one three feet behind line. #twolves

Aaron Falk

Don't look now, but Zach LaVine just tied this game at 96.

John Schuhmann

Zach LaVine just followed a horrible shot w/ a horrible foul.

Aaron Falk

LaVine had a look to tie it but couldn't convert. Gobert grabs his 16th board.

Tony Jones

Or D'Angelo Russell to Zach Lavine and Andrew Wiggins....

Aaron Falk

End of 3: Jazz 63, Wolves 60. Rookies Joe Ingles and Zach LaVine have 18 apiece. Jazz have committed 15 turnovers (19 pts), MIN 16 for 14.

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 22, Wolves 20. Joe Ingles 8 points on 3/3 FGs. For MIN, Zach LaVine has 7 points & Wiggins has 4 on 2-of-6 shooting.

Brian Mahoney

LaVine's FTs help Timberwolves edge Knicks in OT in one of those late-season games where a team could win for losing. bigstory.ap.org/article/e3ffa0…
