Nuggets thwart Wolves efforts to turn it around at Target Center

Denver Nuggets 112

Minnesota Timberwolves 100

The Empire struck back Tuesday night as the Denver Nuggets beat the Timberwolves 112-100 on Star Wars night at Target Center.

1. Wiggins good, but not enough

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points, but not even his best efforts were enough to help the Wolves when Denver finished the night shooting 56 percent.

Wiggins finished the night 9-of-17 from the floor.

2. Nuggets bench leads the way

Denver's bench did most of the damage in the Nuggets victory. They outscored Minnesota's 53-38. The Nuggets reserves posted a plus/minus efficiency rating of +52 on the night.

Will Barton had 14 points off the bench in the victory.

3. Foye feeling it against former team

The biggest thorn in Minnesota's side off the Nuggets bench was a former Timberwolves player. Randy Foye killed his former team.

Foye connected on 5-of-5 from the three-point line, finishing with a season high 19 points. Sending a strong message that first traded for him, they traded him away as part of the deal that brought Rubio to Minnesota.

Tweet of the Night:

One of the few Wolves highlights came on this play from Zach LaVine.

LaVine finished with 20 points on the night.
