Wolves finally win a close one, knocking off Golden State 121-120
The Timberwolves’ 121-120 victory at Golden State on Friday night provided everything anyone could ask for, as long as one of those things wasn’t a lot of defense, at least until the very end.
Most important, it provided the Wolves’ first victory in a close game all season after Kevin Martin’s jump shot with 8.4 seconds proved to be the winner.
Harrison Barnes missed an open jumper as time expired.
“Sometimes it needs to go the other way before it can go the right way,” Wolves forward Kevin Love said. “We’re going to win games like that. We just need to grow up a little in situations like that and get a little luck on our side.”
