Wolves 93, Knicks 97

Ryan Gomes scored 19 points for the Timberwolves, who fell to 0-2 in their first season since trading longtime star Kevin Garnett to Boston over the summer. The Wolves had won four in a row and 10 of 12 against New York.
Al Jefferson, also acquired in the Garnett deal, added 16 points and 12 rebounds. 
Ahead by 10 points in the first quarter, down by eight with five
minutes left in the game, the Wolves pushed the Knicks to the final
shot on a night when the free-throw disparity was 39-10 in attempts and
30-6 in shots made.
Also from Zgoda:
32 Consecutive minutes Antoine Walker sat on the bench before he
entered for a potential game-tying three-pointer that missed in the
final seven seconds.
That the outcome was in doubt during the final
seconds despite a huge free-throw disparity speaks to the Wolves’ solid
play in other areas.
