BROOKLYN, N.Y.—Rookie guard Alexey Shved and Chase Budinger led a furious rally from 22 points down, and the Minnesota Timberwolves came back to stun the Brooklyn Nets 107-96 on Monday night.
Shved made the go-ahead basket with 2:35 remaining and had a pair of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter after going scoreless for the first three. The Timberwolves scored the final 11 points in an impressive rally on the second night of back-to-back games. Seemingly out of the game early in the second half, they overwhelmed the Nets in the fourth quarter with a brilliant effort from their bench.

|"I just think, for our team, losses like this have to sting more than they ever have. Because losses like this can come back to bite ya later in the year. We can't afford to lose at home – we're trying to build a homecourt advantage. We're trying to get a rhythm here at home, some momentum. This was one that was a winnable game."|
