BROOKLYN, NY (KNSI) Rookie guard Alexey Shved and Chase Budinger led a furious rally from 22 points down as the Minnesota Timberwolves stunned the Brooklyn Nets 107-96 on Monday night.

Shved made the go-ahead basket with 2:35 remaining and had a pair of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter after going scoreless for the first three. The Timberwolves scored the final 11 points in an impressive rally on the second night of back-to-back games.

Seemingly out of the game early in the second half, they overwhelmed the Nets in the fourth quarter with a brilliant effort from their bench. Shved, a point guard from Russia, hit from in the lane, then Nikola Pekovic scored inside and Budinger made a 3-pointer with 38 seconds to go, making it 103-96 in front of a stunned crowd in the second game at the new Barclays Center.

The Nets hadn't trailed in the second half of their first two games until Pekovic put Minnesota ahead with a little more than 4-1/2 minutes remaining.
