Foye's 32 points carry Timberwolves past BucksApr 17, 2008 - 4:57 AM MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Randy Foye scored 32 points to lead five others in double figures as the Minnesota Timberwolves posted a 110-101 overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in Wednesday's season finale for both teams.
Ryan Gomes had 17 points and 10 rebounds and Al Jefferson added 13 and 11 for the Timberwolves, who finished the season at 22-60 in their first full season under coach Randy Wittman.
"That's what it's about, finishing the season up," Gomes said. "We were able to finish it out and finish some shots in the fourth quarter, and we came out with a win and end the season on a high note."
Tied at 94-94 in regulation, Minnesota had an opportunity to pull it out, but Rashad McCants misfired on a fast-break layup with just seconds left to force overtime.
In the extra session, the Timberwolves continued their offensive attack behind a 9-3 run which was capped by Foye's 3-pointers at the 2:41 mark. Foye had 10 points in overtime.
"It was fun, though, both teams out there competing." Foye said of playing OT. "I had fun out there, what's another five minutes, and that's when I went off."
Rookie Ramon Sessions dazzled once again with 25 points and 14 assists and former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut collected 24 and 15 boards for his 38th double-double of the season for the Bucks, who fell to 7-34 away from the Bradley Center.
"It's a negative exclamation point on a season," Bucks coach Larry Krystkowiak said. "It would have been nice to walk out of here with a smile, but such is life."
Sessions, who spent mostly the entire season in the D-League, handed out a rookie-record 24 assists in Monday's 16-point loss to Chicago.
"It was really a bright spot," Krystkowiak said. "Certainly, going down the stretch, it's given (Sessions) a lot of confidence and should propel him into a better situation, I think, in our league."
