NETS-TIMBERWOLVES NOTEBOOK
THE STAT: Williams registered his twenty-first assist with 9:20 remaining in the fourth quarter and he would have had more had teammates converted late. Along with the game-winning step-back, his other two biggest plays in crunchtime were another step-back jumper to put the Nets up 103-99 and a steal that led to Mario West splitting a pair of free throws.

TURNING POINT: After a wild last 1:28, Beasley missed a leaning 3-pointer from the wing that would have won the game.
