How does a player with only a knight wins on time? shouldn`t it be a Draw, if he doesn't have enough material for a win?!

He has enough material for a win if the knight can checkmate you.
Answered by FreezingTiger
If the opponent still has material then a single knight can still checkmate in something like a smother mate.
