MINNEAPOLIS -- Cool as their unflappable head coach, Brad Stevens, the Boston Celtics never got down even as their deficit ballooned against the young and athletic Minnesota Timberwolves. Discount Football Jerseys .When the Celtics finally got going, the Wolves tensed up once again and let another big lead get away.Isaiah Thomas scored 29 points and Boston rallied from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Timberwolves 99-93 on Monday night.Al Horford added 20 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Celtics, who trailed 81-68 after three. Boston opened the fourth on a 17-0 run to take the lead and held on down the stretch for its second straight win.I think give us credit for playing a little harder than them and making them think a little more and getting them uncomfortable, Thomas said.Karl-Anthony Towns had 27 points and 18 rebounds for the Timberwolves. Gorgui Dieng added 20 points and 10 rebounds, but Andrew Wiggins was just 5 for 18 and Minnesota scored three points in the first 9 minutes of the fourth.We laid a damn egg, said Zach LaVine, who was 4 of 12 from the field and 0 for 7 on 3-pointers.Terry Rozier added a career-high 12 points off the bench and keyed the Celtics surge in the first 6 minutes of the fourth.The Timberwolves have normally reserved their meltdowns this season for the third quarter, when they have the NBAs worst point differential. But they won that period 29-26 on Monday night, just the second time this season they have outscored their opponent in the third.Jonas Jerebko and Rozier opened the fourth with 3-pointers, and Rozier added another long ball and a steal and dunk to push the Celtics in front.Towns was the only player who scored for the Wolves in the first 11 minutes of the fourth quarter, converting a three-point play with 5:18 to go for their first bucket and hitting a 3-pointer with 2:38 remaining.Boston outscored Minnesota 31-12 in the fourth as the Timberwolves shot 5 for 25.They were definitely pressing, Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. Guys were into guys, we were making everything hard. You could definitely tell they were pressing to find a great shot.The Wolves outscored Boston 58-34 in the paint and outrebounded the Celtics 51-39, including 16-6 on the offensive glass. But Minnesota missed eight free throws.I think we have to play tougher with a lead, coach Tom Thibodeau said. And the big thing for us is to improve and learn.TIP-INSCeltics: Horford also had three blocks and reached 20 points for the first time with the Celtics. ... Boston was issued a rare delay of game warning coming out of a timeout late in the third quarter. ... Jerebko was a plus-20 in under 19 minutes.Timberwolves: Minnesota entered the game leading the NBA in 3-point shooting, but was 4 for 24. ... Towns has blocked a shot in 20 straight games. ... F Brandon Rush was active after missing the previous seven games with a sore big toe on his right foot. He played 2 minutes in the fourth quarter.TEMPERS FLAREOne of the biggest guys on the court and the smallest got into it in the third quarter when the 6-foot-11, 240-pound Dieng leveled the 5-9, 185-pound Thomas with a screen. Dieng was called for an offensive foul because he was moving while he set the screen, and Thomas took exception. The All-Star guard got up and shoved Dieng, and the two exchanged words while being separated by teammates.It was the heat of the battle, Thomas said. We talked about it after, and he loves my game, I love his, so were good.CROWDER AILINGJae Crowder missed eight games with a sprained left ankle before returning on Saturday against Detroit. He made life difficult on Wiggins, who was 0 for 5 from 3-point range. But Crowder had to leave the game in the third quarter because of soreness in that left ankle and did not return.Hopefully hell be OK, Stevens said.UP NEXTCeltics: Boston wraps up a three-game road trip in Brooklyn on Wednesday night.Timberwolves: Minnesota starts a three-game trip with a game at New Orleans on Wednesday night in which Towns will face fellow Kentucky big man Anthony Davis.

When it was announced that Sauber had found themselves a financial saviour in the form of Longbow Finance, there was widespread celebration in the paddock. The Swiss racers are the sports fourth-oldest team, and there is a lot of affection for the team that keeps rising from the ashes, no matter how hot the fires.Once the relief that Sauber had secured their future had subsided, the question on everyones lips was who or what is Longbow? In the Budapest paddock on Thursday, rumours were circulating that Marcus Ericssons backers were behind the deal, although the Swedish driver denied any knowledge when asked in the official FIA press conference.I think its great news for the team, Ericsson said on Thursday. Its no secret its been a difficult year for us in Sauber, financially mainly. We havent been able to update the car the way we wanted and been fighting in the back. I think for the team its been very, very important that this happened and its great news. What it means for the future, I dont know, we have to wait and see. But for sure its very, very good news for everyone in Sauber.Asked about the stories linking his backers with the Sauber takeover, Ericsson replied: Ive seen that [story] as well. Its not something I know about. Im not involved in these kind of things anyway, so yeah I really dont know to be honest. And my future, like anyone else without a contract for next year so looking at Sauber because I really like the way its working in Sauber. Hopefully now with a new owner we can improve as a team but also looking at other alternatives, so lets see.The Swedish driver then had to deflect a further question on the link, saying Of course I care about [the future of my team] and I think its important that the team has got a new owner, but who they are and what they are is not something that Im involved with. Im contracted as a racing driver and my job is to drive the car as fast as possible on the race track, to work with my engineers, to work with the guys on the aero, stuff like that. Who owns the teams and who is putting money in the team and all these kinds of stuff - I think that is not my job so its as simple as that.A little digging through company records available online does show some links between the mysterious Longbow Finance (first incorporated as Tepar Investmeent Management in 1963) and single-seater motorsport, irrespective of any possible links with Ericsson or his backers: Raymond J. Wholesale Football Jerseys. . Baer, president of the Longbow Finance board of directors, has a CV dominated by years spent with Swiss private bank Julius B?r, one of Formula Es key sponsors.Longbow is but one of many boards that Baer sits on - the Swiss financier is also president of the board of directors at Swiss investment firm Alpine Select, a position he has held since 2013; honorary chairman of both the Julius Baer Group Ltd. and Bank Julius Baer & Co. Ltd. (since 2012); president of the board of trustees for the Pension Fund of the Julius Baer Group (since 2004), and many more besides.Baer is incredibly well connected in the Swiss business and finance worlds. Away from Julius B?r the 57-year-old is a member of the advisory board of the Lorange Institute of Business Zurich and since 2001 has served as president of the Swiss American Chamber of Commerce -- Financial Services Chapter Board. But Baer also has an interest in the automotive sector, and in 2014 he was made a member of the board of AMAG Automobil- und Motoren AG, a major Swiss car dealer and importer founded in 1945 to bring luxury marques to Swiss clients.Bloombergs profile of Longbow is limited in scope, but their background on Baer paints a very clear picture of a man who is socially and professionally connected to everyone -- and every business -- worth knowing in Switzerland. This person is connected to 14 board members in three different organizations across four different industries, Bloomberg noted in a thumbnail sketch.Where things get really interesting is with the list of previous names Longbow has been known by, one of which is Tetral Investment Management SA -- a company that is currently listed as being based at 70 Avenue du General-Guisan, in Pully, Switzerland. That is also the current contact address for Tetra Laval International SA, the parent company of Tetra Pak and owned by a certain Hans Rausing, backer of the only Swedish driver on the grid.Given those circumstances, it is hard to believe that Longbows decision to invest in Sauber is entirely coincidental.
