Minnesota Timberwolves forwards Chase Budinger and Shabazz Muhammad will miss the final six games of the season with injuries.
Making one free throw at the end of regulation wasn't enough for the Miami Heat, nor was making just one again at the end of the first overtime.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have activated forward Chase Budinger for the first time this season.
His nickname is the Human Pogo Stick and Utah's Jeremy Evans set out to put some bounce back into the Slam Dunk Contest.
Chase Budinger stayed patient and quiet, while Houston coach Kevin McHale left him on the bench over the past three games.
"I like to play, I like to be out there on the court with my teammates," he said. "It really just comes down to what the coach wants."
"I just came in and wanted to be active," said Budinger, who also had eight rebounds. "That's what my whole goal was, to make an impact in the game."
