Minneapolis:

Luke Ridnour hit a floater in the lane at the buzzer, capping Minnesota's comeback from 18 points down in the fourth quarter as the Timberwolves beat the Utah Jazz 100-98 on Wednesday.

Utah's Al Jefferson sank a jumper with Kevin Love in his face to tie the score at 98-all with 7 seconds remaining.

After a timeout, Ridnour took a pass from J.J. Barea, drove the lane, and sank a shot over Jefferson as the buzzer sounded.

Barea finished 22 points and tied a career high with five 3-pointers, and Ridnour added 17 points.

Paul Millsap scored 25 and Josh Howard added a season-high 19 to lead the Jazz, who lost their third straight and stumble into the All-Star break.
