Recap: Timberwolves 98, Cavaliers 97

By Jason Lloyd Published: December 26, 2010

Antawn Jamison missed a driving layup in the final seconds and didn't get the foul call he was looking for in the Cavs' 98-97 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

Beasley hit the game-winner when he drove around Jamison on Minnesota's previous possession for an easy basket. Coming out of a timeout, Jamison went hard at Beasley before throwing up an off-balanced shot. The contact seemed incidental and Jamison didn't get the call despite protesting it, along with Cavs coach Byron Scott.

Jamison had 24 points, Anthony Parker had a season-high 21 points and Mo Williams had 17 points and 11 assists. But the Cavs turned it over 17 times and allowed the Timberwolves to make 12 of 23 3-point attempts. Beasley had 28 points for Minnesota, which has just seven wins this season -- and two of them have come against the Cavs.

Kevin Love didn't hit his first field goal until nine minutes remained in the game, but he finished with 16 points and 18 rebounds. Luke Ridnour had 23 points for the Timberwolves.

The Cavs have lost three straight and 13 of their last 14.
