Wolves shut down Kings' Evans for the win


By Phil Miller, for NBA.com

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com Exclusive) -- The matchup was a nightmare for Minnesota: A six-foot-on-tiptoes small fry like Jonny Flynn trying to guard linebacker-solid Tyreke Evans, the Kings' point guard and a 20-points-a-night scorer. "We decided we needed to shuffle the deck a little bit," Wolves coach Kurt Rambis said.

Looks like he drew an ace.

Forward Damien Wilkins was handed the demanding assignment, and his bump-and-block defense on the rookie guard turned Sacramento's best weapon into a dud, allowing Minnesota to race to its most lopsided victory of the season, 112-96 at Target Center.

"Damien took one of their key components out of the ballgame, for the most part," Rambis said. "That really made it tough on them."

It turned the Kings into a jump-shooting team, and when only four of Sacramento's 27 3-pointers fell, the 5-22 Wolves had little trouble securing their second win in three games. Fellow rookie guard Omri Casspi scored 21 points in his second career start, and Beno Udrih added 18 points off the bench, but the Kings, who have lost eight straight road games and are 1-11 away from home, were no match for a Timberwolves offense that matched its season-high output.

"We wanted to eliminate their transition baskets, and limit their points in the paint," Rambis said, and slowing Evans was the key to both. Rambis took a risk by switching Flynn onto the 6-foot-9 Casspi and asking Corey Brewer to shadow Donte Greene, but it paid off when Evans scored only 10 points -- his quietest game since Nov. 2 -- and only two points after halftime.

"I just tried to keep my body on him, keep my hands up, stay physical even when he doesn't have the ball, challenge every shot," said Wilkins, who blanketed Evans, fresh off a 26-point outing against the Wizards, into a 4-for-12 shooting night. "He's got a lot of freedom out there for a rookie, which makes him harder to cover, but I kept telling myself, 'Stay aggressive.' "

The Timberwolves stayed plenty aggressive themselves, romping to a season-high 27 fast-break points. Minnesota outscored the Kings in every quarter, marking the first time this season they won a game after leading at halftime; they were 0-7 with the halftime lead before that.

"The guys came out of the locker room at half, and got together themselves," Rambis said. "They said, 'Let's do it right this time. Let's get off to a good start and don't let (the lead) get away."

Kevin Love made sure they didn't, collecting his seventh double-double in his nine games since returning from a broken hand. Minnesota scored 35 points in the third quarter, then went on a 12-2 run in the fourth quarter to open a 21-point lead. They finished with a 16-point margin, Minnesota's first double-digit win of the year.

Love scored 20 points, which tied Brewer for the team lead, and added 16 rebounds.

And even with all that production, Love couldn't make his coach completely happy. As he jogged down the court after scoring a put-back basket, he was shocked to hear Rambis yelling at him about hustling to the other end.

"So (Love) looks at me and goes, 'Well, do you want me to crash the offensive boards, or do you want me to get back on defense?' " Kurt Rambis said afterward.

Rambis' deadpan answer: "Yes."

"Yeah, he's a funny guy, isn't he?" Love said with a laugh afterward. "But he's keeping us focused."

The Timberwolves needed that after a half-speed effort in an embarrassing loss Wednesday to the Clippers. This time, they were spoiling for a battle.

"We played hard the entire night, and we executed our gameplan," Rambis said. "We bounced back pretty well."

Particularly Wilkins. "It takes a lot of energy to guard [Evans], because he's so aggressive," said Wilkins, who added 16 points of his own on 6-for-9 shooting. "I'm pretty tired right now. But it feels good, too."
