Rose saves the day, Timberwolves beat Suns 116-114

By Andres Ybarra, Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick Rose hit an 18-footer with 0.6 seconds left to give the Minnesota Timberwolves a 116-114 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). Rose scored 29 of his 31 points in the seconds to help Minnesota overcome an 11-point deficit. THE KID FROM CHICAGO COMES UP CLUTCH 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹@budweiserusa Legendary Moment pic.twitter.com/hGOYIaRG4u — Timberwolves (@Timberwolves) January 21, 2019 Karl-Anthony Towns had 28 of his 30 points in the first half for Minnesota. With Towns struggling against double-teams in the second, Rose kept the Wolves in the game on 11-for-18 shooting in the half. T.J. Warren led Phoenix with 21 points and Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre, Jr. each added 18. Warren's last-second corner three hit off the side of the backboard. The Suns lost all four on their trip to fall to 4-20 on the road this season. Taj Gibson dunked to pull Minnesota within one with less than a minute to play. Towns intercepted a bad pass from Booker, and Rose hit the second of two foul shots to tie it at 114 with 30.5 seconds to play. Gibson grabbed the loose ball after Booker lost it on Phoenix's next possession, setting up Rose's winning shot. With the shot clock off and the crowd on its feet, Rose calmly dribbled down the clock against Mikal Bridges before pulling up and hitting the final shot. TIP-INS Suns: C Deandre Ayton (ankle) and F Richaun Holmes (foot) were out after suffering injuries Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in Charlotte.

China population rises 15.23 million in 2018, but rate slows

BEIJING --- China's population rose by 15.23 million people in 2018, marking a continued decrease in the growth rate of the world's most populous nation. Numbers released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday put the population at 1.395 billion in 2018, marking a growth rate of 3.81 percent over the previous year.

The government estimates China's population will peak at 1.442 billion in 2029 before beginning to decline the year after.
