Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Andrei Kirilenko and Nikola Pekovic
returned and made key plays down the stretch.
Pekovic sunk two go-ahead free throws with 14.5 seconds remaining and
Kirilenko made two key blocks in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 97-95 win over
the New Orleans Hornets.
Pekovic's foul shots gave the Wolves a 96-95 lead and Eric Gordon took the
ball to the basket on New Orleans' next possession, but Kirilenko came over to
help defensively and swatted the shot away before splitting a pair from the
line to put Minnesota up by two.
Kirilenko then blocked Roger Mason Jr.'s 3-point attempt at the buzzer.
