MINNEAPOLIS - The dynamic duo of 6'10 center Al Horford and 5'9 guard Isaiah Thomas ​plus ​a never​-​sa​y-die​ die attitude key​ed​ the Boston Celtics​' stunning ​​'99-93 ​win over the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center.​

The Celtics​,​ ​who overhauled an 81-68 deficit entering the fourth quarter, got 29 points from top playmaker Thomas, who drilled 9 of 20 field goals. Horford chipped in 20 points ​and ​6 rebounds.

Shooting guard Avery Bradley contributed 13 points in 13 minutes​.​,Terry Rozier had 12 points ​while ​Marcus Smart shared 9 points.

"​G​ive us credit for playing a little harder than them and making them think a little more and getting them uncomfortable" Thomas ​told reporters ​after the game.

Karl-Anthony "Kat Man" Towns topscored for the Timberwolves with 27 points including 18 boards, Gorgui Dieng added 20, Andrew Wiggins 14, Zach LaVine 11 and Ricky Rubio ​had ​11 points.

"I think we have to play tougher with a lead, and the big thing for us is to improve and learn" Timberwolves head coach Tom Thi​bodeau said.​
