Wolves 103, Jazz 107
Wolves record: 7-26Phil Miller/Star Tribune:Something about the Jazz brings out the best in the Wolves, who executed their offense rather well even in defeat. Minnesota finished with 31 assists, five more than their previous season high -- and that's with just two from the starting point guard. And they made almost 53 percent of their shots, a total that will win most games.
Which is why the Wolves were so disappointed to fall behind by 17, dooming them despite a 19-6 rally to the finish.From Ray Richardson/Pioneer Press:The Wolves (7-26) came close to giving the crowd of 14,123 a dramatic finish, cutting a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter to three with 37.6 seconds left, but another third-quarter breakdown seemed to diminish the comeback like a weak punch line.
