The Wolves pulled off quite the comeback Saturday night in Charlotte. Minnesota entered the fourth quarter trailing by 10 points before storming back for a 125-120 overtime victory.

And it was clutch 3-point shooting that made it all possible as Zach LaVine, Ricky Rubio and Andrew Wiggins drilled threes in the final minute. Wiggins hit his game-tying shot from 31-feet.

All-in-all, Wiggins finished with 29 points on 11 of 20 shooting. Karl-Anthony Towns added 25 points and pulled down 15 rebounds too.

The win snaps Minnesota's four-game losing streak and the Wolves are now 6-14 on the season.
