Potential scenario: KG re-signs in MIN, mentors young core & delivers 1st-round pick to C's, who own Wolves' top-12 protected pick in 2016.
Season low in points allowed for Wolves. 97-77
Helpful guide for Wizards fans after they lose to the Wolves. By 20. http://t.co/XxKyqf33A0
Big win for Lakers in Minnesota with Wolves over Wizards - LA still plays Wolves twice - so Lakers in pole position with 14 W to Wolves' 13
Hugs and high-fives up and down Minnesota as Garentt exits w. 92-72 Wolves lead. As scripted. Wizards headed to 10 Ls in 12 games.
League Pass is so delayed that I think I saw Kevin Garnett in a Wolves jersey tonight
Wolves bust out the KG old school "Get out your seats! It's the 4th quarter" vid.
"Get the (bleep) up! Get the (bleep) up!" a menacing Kevin Garnett stands and yells to Target Center crowd as Wolves take a big lead.
Garnett raising his arms on bench to get crowd out of its seat. Wolves taking control. Up 70-54
Uh oh, KG just went a little ML Carr with the towel on the Wolves bench. Kids, ask your parents.
The Lakers need to catch at least 1 of Minny, NYK and Philly - I think they "overtake" the Wolves to "climb" into 3rd place
Jazz up 29-21 after a quarter over Lakers ----- Wolves up 65-52 vs. Wizards on tank-watch
Garnett much more effective in 5-min stint to start second half, helps lead Wolves off to 13-6 start in 3rd qtr and a 55-48 lead.
Wiz have been playing poorly all night. Shoulda been up by 20 early. NOw that Wolves have gotten out of their own way, they're pulling ahead
Wolves just hold up everything while, er, stocky fan from past dances funky. Barrel-chested "Welcome Home KG." Garnett finally sees, waves.
The most important thing about KG going back to Minnesota is that the Wolves again boast a two-Kevin starting 5.
Wolves' Pekovic needs to make that shiner under his left eye a permanent thing, w. ink or something. It's a good look for him.
Wolves were down 18-3 and shooting 1-14. Outscored Wiz 39-24 and shot 14-27 over final 18 minutes
Down 15 early, Wolves pull even by halftime 42-42. Garnett 3p, 1/4, and 3r in 10-ish minutes.
At the half: Wolves 42, Wizards 42
Wolves have come back from 15 behind to tie game at 42 very late in 1st half.
Kevin Martin has 16 on 6-9. Single-handedly keeping Wolves in it
The Timberwolves are not guarding Temple or Porter.
KG hits a free throw for his first Wolves points since April 9, 2007.
For as lousy as they've played, Wolves trail just 33-31 now w/ KMartin headed to line for a FT midway thru 2nd qtr. They're on a 7-0 run
Timberwolves cut the deficit to 2 and Martin is going to the line to complete a 3-point play.
Jagged Edge’s “Let’s Get Married (Remix)” was just played here. Timberwolves taking KG’s homecoming very seriously.
OK, so yeah, Timberwolves only scored 11 in 1Q. Trail by nine vs. WAS. But Sixers scored 12 and were down by 17 vs. Bucks.
Wizards up 20-11 after 1Q. T’Wolves shot 24%, Wizards 32%. Fewest points Wizards have allowed in a quarter this season.
Wolves missed first 9 shots, trailed 13-1 and now equalled season-low scoring for any quarter. They trail Wizards 20-11 after a quarter
One Wolves insider on 1 benefit of KG being back (tonight): young teammates will see that MN fans do have pulse/can make noise after all.
