The Timberwolves made six 3-pointers in a four-minute span of the third quarter to close the gap, and finished with 32 third-quarter points after scoring only 30 in the first half.

Kyle Mercer scored 18 points to top a balanced score sheet for the Titans (2-1). Micah Paulson scored 17 points, and Tyler Copp and Trent Cowan each finished with 15.
