Game Recap

Tom Hammonds sank a turnaround 20-foot jumper from the left corner as time expired, lifting the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 111-109 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks and capping the most successful season in franchise history.

The win gave the Timberwolves a 45-37 record, their first winning record since entering the NBA in 1989. Minnesota, the seventh seed in the Western Conference, is headed to the playoffs for the second straight season and will face the Pacific Division champion -- Seattle or the Los Angeles Lakers -- in the first round.

A tip-in by Jerald Honeycutt gave the Bucks a 109-108 lead with 40 seconds left. Terry Porter tied it for Minnesota 10 seconds later after making one of two free throws.

With 19 seconds remaining, Milwaukee's Armon Gilliam missed a shot in the lane, but Reggie Jordan had his driving shot blocked at the other end. Hammonds grabbed the loose ball after the block and fired up the winning shot as the buzzer sounded.

DeJuan Wheat had a season-high 19 points and eight assists, Jordan added 18 points and Hammonds 17 for Minnesota, which closed the season with seven wins in its last eight games. Kevin Garnett and Stephon Marbury played limited minutes, with Garnett scoring 15 points and grabbing eight rebounds in 24 minutes and Marbury picking up five points and five assists in 19 minutes.

Ray Allen went 15-for-27 from the field, including six three-pointers, and scored a career-high 40 points with 10 rebounds to lead Milwaukee, which dropped four of its last five games. Terrell Brandon added 20 points and Ervin Johnson had 14 rebounds for the Bucks, who failed to make the playoffs for the seventh straight season.
