HAWKS 127, TIMBERWOLVES 120
Trae Young had 38 points and 11 assists and John Collins added 27 points and 12 rebounds to lead Atlanta past Minnesota, as the teams braced for major roster shifts. Collins had his fifth straight double-double for the Hawks.
Andrew Wiggins scored 25 and Josh Okogie 23 to lead the Wolves, who made it a game with a late 19-7 run in a too-little, too-late bid. Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 21 points as Minnesota lost its 13th straight game.
Atlanta prepared to add Clint Capela from Houston as part of Wednesday’s reported four-team, 12-player trade that will also send Robert Covington and Jordan Bell from Minnesota to the Rockets. Minnesota, meanwhile, is expected to receive Evan Turner from Atlanta, along with Malik Beasley, Jarred Vanderbilt and Juancho Hernangomez from Denver.
