TIMBERWOLVES 99, GRIZZLIES 97, OT
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Karl-Anthony Towns hit a buzzer-beating desperation shot in overtime to lift Minnesota past Memphis. Memphis led twice during overtime, but Towns helped Minnesota closed it out. On the final possession, Andrew Wiggins ran the clock down to six seconds before shooting a pull-up 3. The rebound fell to the right side, where Towns grabbed it, dribbled once and floated up a shot as he faded toward the corner.
Towns scored all 16 of his points after halftime. Jerryd Bayless had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists for the Timberwolves on a frigid night with an announced crowd of 13,615 in Minnesota.
Mike Conley had 26 points and eight assists for Memphis.
