Wolves fall in overtime to Nuggets, 103-101

The Timberwolves' three-game winning streak came to an end last night in Denver. The Wolves trailed by three with less than five-seconds remaining in overtime and had a chance to tie after stealing an inbound pass, but Martell Webster went in for a dunk rather than trying a three, and the Wolves lost, 103-101. Kevin Love led Minnesota with 22 points and 13 rebounds.
