Minnesota Timberwolves fall to the Boston Celtics


The Minnesota Timberwolves didn’t find any luck and fell to the Boston Celtics on Monday night.

In what might have been Kevin Garnett’s final game in Boston, he did not play because he’s old and needs to rest even in front of crowds that are cheering his name and want to see him, apparently. Granted, Garnett wouldn’t have made a difference because the Wolves as a whole look tired on Monday.

As soon as the Wolves would cut into a Boston lead, the Celtics would start stepping away again. A real one step forward and two steps back kind of situation went down in Bean Town as the C’s won 113-99.

The young stud two-step combined for more than half of the Timberwolves points. Andrew Wiggins led the Wolves with 26 points and Karl-Anthony Towns was right behind with 25 points and he also grabbed a real nice 16 rebounds.

Gorgui Dieng, in the starting lineup due to the old KG, was the only other starter in double-digits with a 12 point night. Zach LaVine scored 17 off the bench. LaVine was only one of three bench players to score: Shabazz Muhammad had eight points and Kevin Martin had three.

No Boston players scored in the 20-point range, but six Celtics did get into double-digits. Kelly Olynyk led the way with 19 points with Jae Crowder right behind with 18 points. Terry Rozier was the only Celtic not to score, but he only played one minute. Jordan Mickey also played one minute, but got himself two points.
