They last lost to them 103-101 in overtime on Jan. 3, 2007, nearly five years ago. That was, of course, when Kevin Garnett still played in Minnesota. ... The Wolves' victory Sunday leaves Washington (0-4) as the NBA's only winless team.

Numbers: The Spurs' Gregg Popovich became the 14th coach in NBA history to win 800 games on Saturday. ... The Spurs have a .699 winning percentage since they drafted Duncan in 1997. That's the best percentage of any franchise in the four major sports in that time.

Injuries: Wolves G Malcolm Lee (knee surgery), G Martell Webster (microdiscectomy) and C Brad Miller (microfracture knee surgery) are out. Spurs G Gary Neal has not played this season because of an appendectomy.
