Young, Wolves hold off Pistons 97-91

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves' youth movement is in full effect, with Andrew Wiggins and Co. ushering in a new era in the wake of Kevin Love's departure.

When it came to winning time on Thursday night, however, it was all veterans on the floor. And that's what makes coach Flip Saunders believe the rebuilding effort won't be as drastic as some people expect.

Thaddeus Young scored 19 points and hit a big 3-pointer with 90 seconds to play to lift the Timberwolves to a 97-91 victory over the Detroit Pistons, making Saunders a winner in his first home game as Timberwolves coach since 2005.
