Gomes leads Minnesota to its third victory of the season

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Minnesota notches third victory of the season, breaks Utah's four game winning streak

Ryan Gomes set the pace for the Minnesota Timberwolves, scoring 23 points on 9-for-10 shooting, as Minnesota defeated the Utah Jazz 108-101. Minnesota shot 57.1 percent, improving on their previous best: 52 percent in a losing effort against Boston on November 4th.

With Minnesota's low-post stalwart, Al Jefferson, struggling for much of the game, Kevin Love's presence was a big help. It was only Love's second game back from a fractured hand that kept him out of the first 19 games of the season and he scored a double-double in both of those games. Tonight he scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Last night, Love put up 11 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in a loss to New Orleans.

"He's a terrific player," Jerry Sloan said. "He knows how to play basketball. He passes, sets screens, and does whatever it takes to play the game. The game is not that difficult, but we make it difficult when we try to do something sensational. He just plays and you can't get him off the court. Those kind of guys play for a long time in this league."

Minnesota trailed by 14 in the second quarter as Utah built a lead without Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer on the floor. The Wolves, however, closed the second quarter with an 11-0 run to trail by only three at half, 50-47.

Coming out of the half, turnovers by Utah led to back-to-back breakaway dunks by Corey Brewer and Jonny Flynn and a layup by Ryan Gomes led to a quick timeout from Jerry Sloan as Minnesota took the lead 55-52, extending their run to 16-0.

"If we can't guard anybody better than that, you can't even think about winning," Jerry Sloan said. "And when you keep throwing the ball to them for 25 points off turnovers, that doesn't give you much of a chance at all."

With the score tied at 73 at the end of the third, Ryan Gomes scored seven of his 23 points in a key stretch to open the fourth quarter as Minnesota built an eight point lead with eight minutes to play in the game.

From that point, Al Jefferson, who was 3-for-13 at the time, took over and scored nine of his 15 points in the final minutes of the game and kept Utah from getting closer than four points.

"I thought our guys did a real good job for the huge majority of the ball game, doing the right thing, sticking to the game plan defensively and moving the basketball," said Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis. "We got a lot of guys in double-figures because we moved the ball and shared it."

Known mainly for his rebounding, Kevin Love has added a 3-point shot to his game. With two baskets from beyond the arc tonight, Kevin Love is 4-for-7 from beyond the arc in his two games this season, surpassing his total of two for last season.

"He's a key component to this team," Ryan Gomes said. "In his first two games, he has a double-double in both of them. He's rebounding and knocking shots down, giving Al room to operate and Jonny room to penetrate."

After winning the first game of the season, Minnesota had to survive 15 losses before winning again, six days ago in Denver. This victory came after only two losses and, going back to last season, gave Minnesota back-to-back victories over Utah for the first time since 2005.

Utah had won four straight and seven on their last eight.
