Timberwolves 128, Nuggets 125 (OT)
MINNEAPOLIS — Jimmy Butler scored 12 of his game-high 39 points in overtime to help Minnesota top Denver.
Butler picked up the slack in overtime after Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson fouled out and point guard Jeff Teague exited with an injury.
The Timberwolves won their fifth game in a row while halting the Nuggets’ winning streak at three games. Denver got 28 points from Will Barton.
