Martell Webster had it in for his old team Tuesday night in the nation's capital.
The former Timberwolves reserve shooting guard, now a small forward for Washington, drilled a go-ahead 3-pointer from the left wing with 42.9 seconds left to ice what ranks as the most disappointing setback in Minnesota's young season. Facing a team that came in with a 2-7 mark and a propensity to fade late, the Timberwolves had hoped to commence a taxing span of five games in seven nights on somewhat stable footing.
Instead, they blew a 16-point lead, fell 104-100 and face a whole lot of questions heading into matchups Wednesday against the powerful Clippers and Friday against the high-powered, new-look Nets.
"A good team wins a game like this," Timberwolves forward Kevin Love said. "You got the sense that it was a do-or-die game for them, and that's how it needs to be for us every night."
He can thank Webster -- a teammate of Love's from 2010-2012 -- for the reminder.
