Minnesota Timberwolves 108

Denver Nuggets 111 ot

The Minnesota Timberwolves blew another lead and this time they fell to the Denver Nuggets 111-108 in overtime at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

1. Another big lead evaporates

It got closer than that as Denver virtually erased all of Minnesota's 18 point first half lead. The Nuggets, who trailed virtually all night claimed a 100-99 lead with 28 seconds remaining.

The game went into overtime and the Wolves came up short.

2. Wiggins, Martin lead the Wolves

Andrew Wiggins and Kevin Martin each put up 22 points on the night to lead the Wolves, but neither shot real well – especially in the second half.

Martin finished 8-of-20, and was just 2-of-7 from the three-point line. Wiggins was 8-of-17 and missed a couple of big free throws in the clutch.

3. Jameer Nelson strikes again

Not that its any surprise when the Wolves meet up with the Nuggets, but the Jameer Nelson put together a nice night for Denver. Nelson finished with 20 points, he was 4-of-7 from behind the three-point line.

As a team the Nuggets knocked down 11 three's.
