Final game story from last night: Wolves stomp Washington in Garnett's return to Target Center | Star Tribune m.startribune.com/sports/wolves/…

Ben Rohrbach

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.

There was a stuck sprocket on the Wolves Daily assembly line so watch my @CineSport interview after KG's debut strib.mn/1AuGLSp

Kevin Garnett returned home to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the tribute video KG received was outstanding. VIDEO: youtube.com/watch?v=lRhZE_…

In Kevin Garnett's return, the Wolves see the fairy tale scenario unfold cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas…

Jon Krawczynski

Season low in points allowed for Wolves. 97-77

Royce Young

Helpful guide for Wizards fans after they lose to the Wolves. By 20. http://t.co/XxKyqf33A0

Mike Mazzeo

#Timberwolves 97 #Wizards 77. KG: 5 points, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 assists in 19 minutes. Knicks, Lakers and Sixers like this result.

Eric Pincus

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

Carla Peay

Raise your hand if you thought the #Wizards would lose by 20 to the #Timberwolves. Sure you did.

Steve Aschburner

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.

Ethan J. Skolnick

League Pass is so delayed that I think I saw Kevin Garnett in a Wolves jersey tonight

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves bust out the KG old school "Get out your seats! It's the 4th quarter" vid.

Andy Greder

"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.

Jon Krawczynski

Garnett raising his arms on bench to get crowd out of its seat. Wolves taking control. Up 70-54

Steve Aschburner

Uh oh, KG just went a little ML Carr with the towel on the Wolves bench. Kids, ask your parents.

Eric Pincus

The Lakers need to catch at least 1 of Minny, NYK and Philly - I think they "overtake" the Wolves to "climb" into 3rd place

Eric Pincus

Jazz up 29-21 after a quarter over Lakers ----- Wolves up 65-52 vs. Wizards on tank-watch

Jerry Zgoda

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.

Jon Krawczynski

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

Steve Aschburner

Wolves just hold up everything while, er, stocky fan from past dances funky. Barrel-chested "Welcome Home KG." Garnett finally sees, waves.

Kevin Pelton

The most important thing about KG going back to Minnesota is that the Wolves again boast a two-Kevin starting 5.

Jon Krawczynski

This is how we do it! RT @steventurous: MONTELL JORDAN AT THE WOLVES GAME.

Steve Aschburner

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.

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves were down 18-3 and shooting 1-14. Outscored Wiz 39-24 and shot 14-27 over final 18 minutes

Ben Golliver

Timberwolves welcome Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota with tribute video on.si.com/1DceJbC http://t.co/0F1T48zfFr

Steve Aschburner

Down 15 early, Wolves pull even by halftime 42-42. Garnett 3p, 1/4, and 3r in 10-ish minutes.

Jon Krawczynski

#TWolves 42, #Wizards 42 at half. KMart 16, KG 3 pts 1-4, 3 rebs, 2 blks. Gortat 9, 10 rebs for WAS. Wolves 36%, Wiz 38%

Jerry Zgoda

At the half: Wolves 42, Wizards 42

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves have come back from 15 behind to tie game at 42 very late in 1st half.

Jon Krawczynski

Kevin Martin has 16 on 6-9. Single-handedly keeping Wolves in it

Kurt Helin

Mike Prada

The Timberwolves are not guarding Temple or Porter.

Mike Mazzeo

KG hits a free throw for his first Wolves points since April 9, 2007.

Jerry Zgoda

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

Jorge Castillo

Timberwolves cut the deficit to 2 and Martin is going to the line to complete a 3-point play.

Payal Doshi

KG’s his first game in a @Minnesota Timberwolves jeresy was November 3, 1995 and Andrew Wiggins was only 8 months and 11 days old. #WelcomeBackKG

Jorge Castillo

Jagged Edge’s “Let’s Get Married (Remix)” was just played here. Timberwolves taking KG’s homecoming very seriously.

Scott Agness

Condolences to @Minnesota Timberwolves ball boys - a really good group - as they now have to put up with KG, again. #TheWorst

Steve Aschburner

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.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards up 20-11 after 1Q. T’Wolves shot 24%, Wizards 32%. Fewest points Wizards have allowed in a quarter this season.

Jerry Zgoda

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

Jon Krawczynski

#Wizards 20, #Timberwolves 11 after 1. Both teams a little too jacked after KG theatrics. Wiz 8-25, Wolves 5-21

Royce Young

Steve Aschburner

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.
