Wolves get back-to-back wins for first time this season

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Corey Brewer's season-high 27 points gave Minnesota back-to-back wins for the first time this season, defeating the Washington Wizards 101-89.

On Wednesday, Minnesota defeated New Jersey 103-99, but the two games were very different. Minnesota's frontcourt on Wednesday dominated and outscored New Jersey 56-30 in the paint. On Saturday, while Kevin Love and Al Jefferson scored a respectable 17 and 11, it was Corey Brewer and backup point guard Ramon Sessions that keyed the victory.

"[Ramon Sessions] did a good job defensively and organizing our offense particularly late in the ball game, making sure that we were handling the pressure," said Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis.

After winning only one of its first 16, Minnesota has now won six of its last 15.

"I feel like we are a young team and we are just getting better game-by-game and hopefully we can keep it up all season," Brewer said. "I am starting to be aggressive. I moved to the two guard from small forward. Tonight was good and we know what we can do."

Kevin Love posted his eleventh double-double in 13 games this season. Love, who was held out of the first 18 games with a broken bone in his hand, has averaged 14.9 rebounds in the last eight games and would be second in the league in rebounding if he had enough games to qualify.

After an evenly matched but not particularly well-played first three quarters, Minnesota trailed 69-68 early in the fourth. A 13-2 run gave the Wolves a 10-point lead that they never relinquished.

"I thought we got off to a relatively disappointing start," Rambis said. "I went to my bench probably earlier than I anticipated. The bench did exactly what they were supposed to do. They came in with energy and effort. They brought some intensity and focus."

Randy Foye, an ex-Timberwolf, made a flurry of 3-pointers late in the fourth, but the Wizards never got closer than seven points.

"This loss here is unacceptable from our side as players," Foye said. "This is terrible, we feel as though we're much better than this."

The Wizards were looking for their third straight victory and their fifth in a row against the Wolves. They have not won three straight for more than 20 months.

Gilbert Arenas scored 26 points, but had to take 28 shots. And while he had nine assists, he also had seven turnovers. The Wizards had 11 fewer assists and 11 more fouls than Minnesota.

"When you don't score, when you don't make shots you always hurt the team," Arenas said. "I hurt the team more turning the ball over than the shots I took."
