Sebastian Telfair knocked down a 3 with 1:07 left to give the Timberwolves the lead again. But Crittenton answered with a long jump shot to continue the seesaw battle and put Washington up 102-101.
After the Wizards made a stop, Crittenton again had the ball in his hands, leading a charge up the court before driving to the basket. But with two defenders meeting him at the rim, he sent a bounce pass to James, who again was left open and buried another 3-pointer to boost the Wizards’ lead to 105-101.
The game was never in doubt after that.
“I have to give the Wizards credit because Mike James made two really big 3-pointers at the end that really hurt us,” Minnesota coach Kevin McHale said. “We were scoring enough, but we were not able to get any stops.”
