The Wolves trailed 27-24 at the end of the first quarter, and narrowed the Nuggets' lead to 1 in the second for a 50-49 score at halftime.

The Nuggets began to pull away in the third quarter, however, outscoring the Wolves 33-21 in the third, and put Minnesota away for good by outscoring the team 28-18 in the fourth on the way to the 111-88 victory.
