Bobcats edge struggling Timberwolves, 102-101


For the second straight game the Timberwolves scored 101 points -- and for the second straight game it wasn't enough to win.

The Charlotte Bobcats beat the struggling Timberwolves Saturday in Charlotte, 102-101, the Pioneer Press reports.

The Wolves appeared to have secured the win until Charlotte's Gerald Henderson hit a desperation 3-pointer with 4.6 seconds left to take the lead.

Charlotte was the NBA's second-worst team in the league going into the game. On Friday, the Wolves lost to the league's worst team, the Washington Wizards, 114-101.

On Saturday, Luke Ridnour led the Wolves with 22 points, followed by J.J. Barea with 19.

Ricky Rubio scored 14 and played just over 29 minutes -- a couple minutes shy of the season high 31 minutes he played Friday.

The Wolves dropped to 17-24 with the loss.

The Wolves return to Target Center Wednesday to take on the Los Angeles Clippers.
