Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork. Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys .com) - Nikola Pekovic made the go-ahead layup with 48.6 seconds remaining as the Minnesota Timberwolves scored nine unanswered points to end the game and beat the Brooklyn Nets 98-91 on Wednesday night. Pekovic was fouled by Brook Lopez pivoting for the go-ahead bucket and made the free throw to give the Timberwolves a 94-91 lead. Thaddeus Young added a floater and Kevin Martin made two foul shots for the last of his game-high 26 points, ending the 9-0 flurry. Ricky Rubio started the run with a tying layup and finished with 14 points and 12 assists for the Timberwolves. Pekovic added 16 points and 11 rebounds and rookie Andrew Wiggins scored 17, an early career high. Joe Johnson had 22 points and Deron Williams scored 19 for the Nets, who lost for just the fifth time in their last 29 home games. Brooklyn started a four-game homestand with a 116-85 win over injury-riddled Oklahoma City on Monday, but trailed by as many as 15 in this one after the Timberwolves opened the game on a 17-2 run. The spurt began with one bucket each from Minnesotas five starters. Brooklyn responded with a 17-4 burst and was within 24-21 at the buzzer. The Nets had a five-point lead late in the second quarter and led by one, 48-47, at halftime behind 12 points from Williams. Wiggins scored eight of his 17 points in the third quarter, helping Minnesota build a 72-66 lead going into the fourth. Jarrett Jack got eight of his 14 points for the Nets in the last quarter, including four during a 14-4 run that turned a four-point deficit into a six- point lead with under five minutes remaining.

And it doesnt help that theyre in a franchise worst slump. On Sunday, Montreal matched a team high five-game losing streak, falling 3-2 to the visiting Portland Timbers. As assistant coach Mauro Biello sees it, the struggles have started to take their toll on the players both mentally and physically. "Right now, were very fragile," said Biello. "As much as its on the field with the ball, its in our head. When things dont go well, its something thats always there. Its a mindset that has to change if were going to want to win some games. "You try to tell the players to focus on things they can control." Biello was on the sidelines managing the Impact on Sunday after Frank Klopas was suspended for arguing with a referee during Montreals game on Thursday. Biello is now 1-1-3 at the helm of the Impact. "Its normal that players are frustrated," he said. "We gave up three goals at home. Its unacceptable. If you want to win a game, you cant give up three goals at home." With the game tied 2-2 in the 82nd minute, Timbers midfielder Diego Valeri pounced on a giveaway by former teammate Mamadou Danso before curling the winner just out of the reach of goalkeeper Evan Bush. Danso, who was making his first appearance for the Impact, missed his clearance after losing his footing on the rain-drenched pitch. "I have to go back and watch that again," said Danso, who was traded from Portland to Montreal in June. "The cross came in and I stepped in to block it. I can not say at the top of my head what happened. I definitely have to go back and look at it and try to rectify it." The last-place Impact (3-12-5) have been at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings since Apr. 5. Recently, Montreal is making a habit of losing games late. Against Chivas USA on July 5, the Impact conceded a goal to Erick Torres four minutes into stoppage time for the first of five consecutive losses. The following week, a defensive howler in the 89th minute gifted Sporting Kansas City the 2-1 victory. In Columbus last Saturday, a strike from distance in the 75th minute sent Montreal home sulking. "Weve been missing something these last few games," said Marco Di Vaio, who came on as a substitute in the 63rd minute versus the Timbers. "Were conceding goals out of nothing. Its mental right now. We have to find the solution in the dressing room, between us. Its a very tough time for us right now. What we did today simply isnt enough. "Its definitely mental. Physically, were the same as other teams. Something important is missing. Maybe were trying to do too much, or maybe were thinking too much. We have to find the solution as a team. We cant finish this way. We dont want to finish last. We have to be more confident. We have to find a way.&quoot; After taking a surprising lead in the 13th minute on Andres Romeros first goal in seven games, Montreal conceded twice in quick succession after the half-hour mark. Jimmy Butler Jersey. Argentine midfielder Maximiliano Urruti scored his team-leading ninth goal, and second in two games, in the 34th minute. Timbers forward Darlington Nagbe, Portlands most dangerous player in the first half, found a hole in the Impact defence and fed Urruti, who was waiting patiently in front of Bushs net. Five minutes later, Canadian international Will Johnson gave Portland (6-6-9) the 2-1 lead from the penalty spot after he was taken down in the box by Impact defender Hassoun Camara. Bush, making his third consecutive start in place of regular starting goalkeeper Troy Perkins, was given no chance on Johnsons penalty. "Its hard to feel positive about our results right now," said Bush, who ended the night with six saves, including four in the first half. "Its not like anybody is giving up. Its not like were throwing away the season, by any means. Guys are working hard, and you can see that, emotionally, guys are distraught after games like these. "Weve put so much work during the week into preparation and training, so its difficult. Things are only going to stay this way until we have the right mentality." Down 2-1 with halftime approaching, Montreal looked to right the ship when Maxim Tissot, a product of the Impact Academy, finished off an impressive team effort that involved four of Montreals midfielders. Captain Patrice Bernier, making his 150th appearance for the club, got the play going after the Timbers turned over possession in their own half. Bernier crossed to Felipe, who fed Justin Mapp, who gave it right back to the Brazilian. Felipe one-touched the ball down the left wing to a streaking Bernier, who squared to Tissot in the 18-yard box. The 22-year-old Tissot, in his fifth start with the Impact this season, side-footed the equalizer past keeper Donavan Ricketts. "Ive had a few good chances this year that I havent put away," Tissot said. "In terms of confidence, it will definitely help me. Its just a shame we couldnt get the result, or at least one point. Before I played for the team, I was a supporter of the team. So I know what theyre living right now. "Its not easy for them, and its not easy for us." Montreal has yet to beat a Western Conference opponent this season (0-6-1). Notes: The loss was Montreals first this season when scoring the opener at home (3-1-2). After starting the last game on the bench, striker Jack McInerney was back in the starting lineup on Sunday. McInerney has not scored in his last five games. It took 53 minutes for the Timbers to record their first foul of the game. Montreal had 15 at that point. Montreal plays host to Jermain Defoe and Toronto FC next Saturday.
