Flynn's shot secures Wolves' upset win over Jazz


By Andrew Aragon, for NBA.com

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- He's only a rookie, but it wasn't an unfamiliar situation for Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jonny Flynn. With the game tied and his team needing a go-ahead shot in the final seconds, Flynn had the ball in his hands. He had converted in these types of scenarios in high school and college, but this was his first opportunity to do it in an NBA game.

Flynn delivered. He scored on a driving layup with three seconds remaining to give Minnesota a stunning 110-108 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night. It was the second time the Timberwolves (4-21) have defeated the Jazz (14-10) in 10 days. Minnesota has beat Utah three straight times dating back to last season.

"I want the ball in those situations," Flynn said. "I grew up always being that guy, taking those last shots and I'm glad I could help the team out."

Flynn helped his team out throughout the night, scoring a career-high 28 points with a career-high four 3-pointers. He had 19 of his points in the first half.

Flynn did exactly what Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis wanted him to do on Minnesota's final possession and made the correct read to get to the basket. He held the ball until there were five seconds left on the shot clock, and then made his move to the hoop. Forward Kevin Love set a screen on Deron Williams and Flynn waited to see if Jazz rookie Wesley Matthews would make a move toward him or stay home.

Matthews stayed home, and Flynn sank the game-winning shot from just a couple feet away from the basket.

"I was just looking for him to create," Rambis said. "I feel that at some point in time in the future that he's going to be one of those guys that's going to be very difficult to contain either in isolation situations or pick-n-roll situations. This entire season and one or two after are going to be growing up periods for him, so I want to give him those opportunities to see what he can do in those late-game situations and he delivered for us tonight."

Flynn didn't waste any time in being the guy for Minnesota. The Timberwolves jumped out to a 17-8 lead, thanks to three 3-pointers from Flynn and 5-for-7 shooting overall. It was just the start Minnesota needed against Utah, which defeated the Spurs, Magic and Lakers in a span of six days last week.

"Jonny had one hell of a game tonight," said Minnesota center Al Jefferson. "I am really proud of him."

The Timberwolves were also proud to pull off one of the more surprising results so far this NBA season. Minnesota was without starter Ryan Gomes, who sat out after injuring his knee against Sacramento on Saturday. He scored 23 points on 9-for-10 shooting in the first meeting between the two teams on Dec. 5.

Minnesota made up for Gomes' absence with Flynn's scoring and better effort and energy than Utah. The Timberwolves collected twice as many offensive rebounds (14-7) as the Jazz, which is usually one of Utah's strengths. Minnesota had 18 second-chance points, compared to just five for the Jazz. The Timberwolves also had nine steals.

"They could have beaten a lot of teams tonight," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said of the Timberwolves. "They beat us down the floor, they drove to the basket and we had a tough time rebounding. Any time those kinds of things happen it doesn't matter what color the uniform is, you're going to get beat."

Minnesota survived several runs by the Jazz and a spectacular game from Williams. In the second quarter, Williams scored nine straight points to give Utah a 48-37 lead, its biggest advantage of the game. He finished with 38 points and 13 assists. Williams also took the last shot of the game, a 3-pointer as the clock expired, but it rimmed out.

The Timberwolves were hardly fazed by falling down by double digits in a tough environment for road teams and kept battling. They answered Williams with a 12-3 run to get back in it and within striking distance at 51-49. Flynn tied the game at 59-59 with a layup with 2:22 left in the second quarter.

"We just kept playing hard," Jefferson said. "This is a hard place to win. They are like two different teams on the road and at home. They kept making shots, we kept coming back at them and that is what it is going to take to win in this league."

The Jazz looked to be in control at 106-103, but made just one shot in the final 2:40. Jefferson hit a 20-foot jumper to give Minnesota the lead at 107-106, and Corey Brewer later made one of the big plays of the night. He drew a charge on Carlos Boozer near the basket, giving the Timberwolves possession with a one-point lead with 26.7 seconds remaining. It was Boozer's sixth foul of the game.

Jefferson finished with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Brewer had 22 points and Love contributed 11 points and 14 rebounds.

"So many guys stepped up and had big ballgames for us and that contribution from a lot of people means a lot to this club," Rambis said.
