With Brewer's spark, Wolves top Kings to end 16-game slide


By Phil Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday April 1, 2010 12:01AM

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Corey Brewer, stuck on the Timberwolves' bench as their 20-point lead slipped away, thought his night was over. Good thing for the Wolves he was wrong.

After sitting out for an entire quarter, Brewer checked in for the final three minutes Wednesday, and halted Sacramento's 16-2 surge almost by himself. Three baskets, some physical defense and a critical steal later, the third-year guard could celebrate his team's first victory in more than five weeks, 108-99 over the Kings.

"I didn't think I was going to get back in. The other guys were playing pretty well," Brewer said after scoring 10 points down the stretch to help end Minnesota's franchise record-tying 16-game losing streak. "But when they started coming back, I had to help the team any way I could."

He did it with a few timely jump shots and some timelier defense. Brewer nailed a 3-pointer that gave the Wolves a little breathing room with just over two minutes to play, then converted a three-point play when Tyreke Evans bumped him on a drive to the basket. But Brewer's biggest play in a 19-point night was still to come: With Sacramento within seven and inbounding the ball with 37.6 seconds remaining, Brewer timed Carl Landry's inbound pass, stepped in front of Evans, and flew to the far basket for a game-clinching dunk.

"Brew's a clutch guy," said Jonny Flynn, who racked up 18 points and eight assists. "When he's on the court, a lot of good things happen."

Maybe, but not many good things have happened to the Wolves this season, so Wednesday's victory -- their first in Target Center since Feb. 6 -- was one to savor. Wolves players were standing in celebration after big baskets, and generally behaved like the win-starved squad they are.

"Obviously this feels really good. The guys in the locker room were very, very happy," said Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis, who narrowly avoided a winless March. "There were gaffes, but overall, our guys really stuck together. It's a real feeling of relief."

Now the Wolves know what other teams feel when they see "Minnesota" on their schedule. After all those ugly losses, after two solid months without a home game against a sub-.500 team, the Wolves had been waiting for Sacramento's arrival for awhile. The Kings, after all, had gone winless in the first four games of their five-game road trip, including a 14-point setback against the last-place Nets.

"We definitely targeted this game," Flynn said. "We knew they've had some injuries, some changes to their lineup. We thought we had a good chance if we played our game."

They did that, getting large contributions from almost the entire roster. Six players scored in double figures and three had 10 or more rebounds. Ryan Gomes didn't reach either mark, yet missed a triple-double by just one point, one rebound and two assists. With everybody playing well, the Wolves made 56 percent of their shots, including 8-for-15 3-pointers, and outrebounded the undersized Kings 46-33.

"It's always something, isn't it?" shrugged Sacramento coach Paul Westphal after his team's sixth straight loss. "We shot well and didn't turn the ball over -- but couldn't rebound. We couldn't get stops, that's for sure."

The Wolves did, and in an unusual way: The NBA's worst shot-blocking team deflected a season-high 10 shots, six by Al Jefferson and four by Darko Milicic. Milicic in particular made a considerable defensive impact against a Sacramento team that was without seven-foot center Spencer Hawes, who is sidelined by a strained back.

"He has the court vision that allows him to anticipate what's coming," Rambis said of Milicic, who contributed 15 points and 10 rebounds. "He gives us the interior presence that we need."

The Kings got 22 points from Carl Landry near the basket, 21 from Donte Greene on the perimeter (including 5-for-6 3-pointers) and 20 points and 13 assists from Evans. The likely Rookie of the Year collected six of those assists in the fourth quarter, when Sacramento put a scare into the Wolves with that five-minute rally.

"That's happened to us a lot this year, but we've learned from it," Flynn said of the Wolves' offensive lull. "If that happened to us early in the year, we would have folded. But tonight, we kept ourselves together."

Brewer kept them together. And for once, the outcome was different for the Wolves.
