Celtics rally from 13 down in 4th to beat Timberwolves 99-93
Isaiah Thomas scored 29 points and the Boston Celtics rallied from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 99-93 on Monday night.
MINNEAPOLIS — Cool as their unflappable head coach, Brad Stevens, the Boston Celtics never got down even as their deficit ballooned against the young and athletic Minnesota Timberwolves.
When the Celtics finally got going, the Wolves tensed up once again and let another big lead get away.
Isaiah Thomas scored 29 points and Boston rallied from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Timberwolves 99-93 on Monday night.
Al Horford added 20 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Celtics, who trailed 81-68 after three. Boston opened the fourth on a 17-0 run to take the lead and held on down the stretch for its second straight win.
“I think give us credit for playing a little harder than them and making them think a little more and getting them uncomfortable,” Thomas said.
Karl-Anthony Towns had 27 points and 18 rebounds for the Timberwolves. Gorgui Dieng added 20 points and 10 rebounds, but Andrew Wiggins was just 5 for 18 and Minnesota scored three points in the first 9 minutes of the fourth.
“We laid a damn egg,” said Zach LaVine, who was 4 of 12 from the field and 0 for 7 on 3-pointers.
Terry Rozier added a career-high 12 points off the bench and keyed the Celtics’ surge in the first 6 minutes of the fourth.
The Timberwolves have normally reserved their meltdowns this season for the third quarter, when they have the NBA’s worst point differential. But they won that period 29-26 on Monday night, just the second time this season they have outscored their opponent in the third.
Jonas Jerebko and Rozier opened the fourth with 3-pointers, and Rozier added another long ball and a steal and dunk to push the Celtics in front.
Towns was the only player who scored for the Wolves in the first 11 minutes of the fourth quarter, converting a three-point play with 5:18 to go for their first bucket and hitting a 3-pointer with 2:38 remaining.
