Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Thaddeus Young scored 22 points, and he hit the go-ahead free throw with 2.8 seconds remaining to boost the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 120-119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers in a battle between the teams with the worst records in the Western Conference. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 26 points, but he had a pair of costly free- throw misses, and his potential game-winning 3-pointer clanked off the rim and backboard as time expired. Lack of focus. Its as simple as that, Lakers coach Byron Scott said. We looked at them like they were inferior to us. We made some bonehead plays on both ends of the floor. Zach LaVine netted a career-best 28 points on 11-of-14 shooting, and Mo Williams scored 25 to go with 11 assists for the Timberwolves, who snapped a three-game skid and moved to 4-10 on the season. You can go right down the line, we had a lot of offense, Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders said. We had 37 assists, which means we moved the ball. Even though were undermanned, we fought to the last second. Wesley Johnson scored 19 and Jeremy Lin contributed 18 points and 11 assists for the Lakers, who blew an eight-point lead with five minutes remaining and lost their fourth in a row to fall to 3-13. Nick Youngs reverse jam gave LA a 115-107 lead with 5:03 left, but the Timberwolves eventually moved to a 119-117 lead on Thaddeus Youngs turnaround bank hook shot with a minute to go. That go-ahead shot came 15 seconds after Bryant missed a pair of foul shots. Johnson then missed a potential 3-point shot, but Williams couldnt get a short jumper to fall at the other end. Bryant pump-faked before sinking a jumper from the right side of the lane with 5.6 seconds left to tie the game at 119. Thaddeus Young then drove to the basket before being fouled by Nick Young. The second free-throw was made, and the Lakers attempt to win the game went awry when Bryant popped free for an open look from the top of the key, but the 3- point attempt hit off the rim and backboard. Williams scored 11 in the opening quarter, but Bryant countered with 12 to give his team a 30-23 edge after 12 minutes. LaVine went 7-of-8 from the field for 18 points in the second, but LA was in front, 58-54, at the half. The hosts were ahead, 96-93, going to the fourth.

Name: Dwight PowellFrom: Toronto, OntarioPlayed: Stanford UniversityHeight: 611Weight: 235 Position: Power Forward2013-2014 Stats: 14 points per game, 6.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists Breakout Game: 22 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists in win vs. California Feb 5th.Accolades: 2013-14 All Pac-12 First Team, Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year.Draft Projection: Mid-late second round. Dwight Powell isnt supposed to be here. Stanford yielded a handful of NBA pros and hadnt been to the NCAA Tournament since 2008 - not the standard route to becoming an NBA Draft prospect. Last year, after a standout junior season, he earned himself a spot on the All Pac-10 First Team. Powell averaged 14.9 points and 8.4 rebounds making an NBA career a legitimate possibility. Usually a promise from a team committing to select them makes a player leave college early. In this case, Powell made a promise to his mother, who was ailing from cancer to finish school, get his degree and compete in the NCAA tournamment for the first time.dddddddddddd Jacqueline Weir passed in 2012 and while its no secret Powell led the Cardinals to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament in March, what got him there and what tools will he need to excel at the next level? Powell is a forward who can face up on the floor whether to make a move to create his own shot or facilitate for others, as hes a more than capable passer for his size/position. While he will need to bulk up for the NBA game, his length (7 wingspan) and mobility are assets. Powell posses a strong basketball IQ, and while his motor isnt in question, an on court intensity would be welcomed. He will need to develop more consistency in a number of areas, particularly with his jump shot and adding range. With more potential than project, Powell has a skill set to contribute to an NBA team and enough talent and physical gifts to build upon. While many were expecting significant jumps from his on court performance from his junior to senior years, the growth in character and leadership cannot be overlooked either. Powell competed for the national program as a key member of Canadas Mens Developmental basketball team that traveled overseas tallying a 15-2 record last summer. Powell kept his word to his mother, now he just has to show enough promise to warrant an NBA team realizing he has enough of it, to select him.
