Brewer helps Timberwolves sink Heat in double-OT
Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Corey Brewer sank the winning free throw with 1.8 seconds remaining in the second overtime, as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the short-handed Miami Heat, 122-121, Friday night.
Kevin Love had 28 points and 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who snapped a seven-game skid against the Heat. Love also played a big part defensively for the visitors, as he pressured Ray Allen's final shot, which was off the mark.
Chase Budinger totaled 24 points and Ricky Rubio contributed 13 points and 14 assists for the Timberwolves, who have won two in a row and four of their last six games.
LeBron James had 34 points and eight boards for Miami, which is locked in a virtual tie with Indiana atop the Eastern Conference. Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers each scored 24 for the Heat, which played without Dwyane Wade (strained left hamstring) and Greg Oden (back spasms).
Miami, which had a four-game winning streak broken, tied the contest at 121 on Bosh's quick 3-pointer from the top of the arc with 10.8 seconds left.
The Timberwolves then tried to get the ball to Brewer near the basket, but he was fouled by Norris Cole. Brewer converted his first free throw, but missed the second.
Allen, under pressure from Love, missed a high-arcing shot at the buzzer.
