Twice the Wolves knocked the ball away; twice they almost got the stop that would have stopped the bleeding. But they didn't. Ultimately, the Wolves put themselves in position to stop a recent losing streak, to head into a big homestand with a modicum of confidence in their backpacks. But they couldn't. Here is what happens when things are going badly: You play good defense, you deflect the ball twice in the span of a few seconds, you have the opponent scrambling, up against the shot clock as the game winds down. And then Gerald Henderson hits a twisting, 25-foot three-pointer over Andrei Kirilenko with 1.1 seconds left on the shot clock and 4.6 seconds left in the game to give the Bobcats a 102-101 victory at Time Warner Cable Arena on Saturday night.
