VIDEO: Luke Ridnour Buzzer-Beater Give Timberwolves Win Over Jazz

The Minnesota Timberwolves weren't the most exciting team to watch around this time last season, but Rick Adelman's pups have already matched last year's win total heading into the NBA All-Star break. While that's impressive by itself, the way they did it was even better.

Point guard Luke Ridnour passed the ball in with seven seconds left in a tie game against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night and the rest, well, it's history. Video is embedded below.

Ridnour inbounded the ball to Barea, got it back, juked Gordon Hayward and hit a floater right in front of former Timberwolves teammate Al Jefferson to give the Wolves the 100-98 victory and a .500 record heading into the All-Star break.

The veteran guard finished the game with 17 points and six assists on the night.
