Notebook: Wolves 95, Bulls 86


Kent McDill, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Jan 27, 2014 11:31 PM - Updated Mon Jan 27, 2014 11:31 PM

THE FACT: Minnesota's win Monday night was their first against the Bulls in the last eight games. Their last win in the series was on Jan. 25, 2009.

THE LEAD: Kevin Love scored 31 points and the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves recorded an easy 95-86 victory over the Chicago Bulls Monday. Ronny Turiaf scored a season-high 14 points playing in place of starting center Nikola Pekovic, who suffered an Achilles injury in the first half. Carlos Boozer led all five Bulls starters in double figures with 20 points. Boozer also had a game-high 14 rebounds.

THE FACTS II: Chase Budinger added 12 points for the Wolves, who completed a 3-1 road trip. The Timberwolves shot 54 percent in the first half.

QUOTABLE I: "What we can take from this is knowing we can win on the road.'
-- Love

THE STAT: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau warned about the Timberwolves' ability to get out on the fast break, but the visitors had 22 fast break points in the game.

THE STAT II: The Timberwolves outscored the Bulls 22-14 from the free throw line thanks to Love, who made all 14 of his attempts.

TURNING POINT: The Timberwolves took the lead for good on their second basket of the game, going ahead 4-2 after two minutes. But in the fourth quarter, the Bulls got the difference down to five points, 84-79, when Love made a layup on a pass from Ricky Rubio, then Jimmy Butler missed a jumper for the Bulls and Corey Brewer scored on another great pass from Rubio for a nine-point Minnesota lead.

INJURY UPDATE: Pekovic suffered his Achilles injury in the first quarter, and Minnesota coach Rick Adelman said he has been dealing with pain there for some time. Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was out again with his hamstring injury but he is going to go on the team's six-game road trip beginning Wednesday. Bulls center Joakim Noah did not play due to illness. He came to the stadium but left before the game started.

HOT: Love had his best game ever against the Bulls, and had his 11th game of the season with at least 30 points, going 8-for-17 from the field. He also had a team-high eight rebounds.

NOT: Boozer missed seven of his first eight shots and ended up going 9 for 24 from the field. The Bulls were horrible as a team, shooting just 37.6 percent.

QUOTABLE II: "It's a matter of playing to a certain level, and then we are going to win our share of games."
-- Adelman

GOOD MOVE: Not only did Turiaf play well in extended minutes, but the Timberwolves played seven guys on their bench with most of them getting at least eight minutes. The bench contributed 35 points.

BAD MOVE: Letting Noah go home might have been a mistake. Taj Gibson started in his place and scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, but the Bulls played only seven players for most of the game and got only 11 points off the bench, including nine points from backup center Nazr Mohammed.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Former Bull and three-time champion Toni Kukoc made his annual appearance at a Bulls game.

ROOKIE WATCH: Bulls rookie forward Tony Snell went 1-for-7 from the field in 24 minutes off the bench as the top reserve on a very short bench. Minnesota rookie Gurgui Dieng played nine minutes and missed a pair of shots but also had two rebounds.

NOTABLE: With Noah and Hinrich out, the Bulls played their 18th different lineup in their 44th game of the season. By comparison, the Timberwolves have played only three different lineups... the Bulls have shot below 40 percent in 16 of their 44 games... the Bulls were called for 25 personal fouls to just 14 for the Timberwolves... Bulls guard D.J. Augustin scored 19 points and is averaging a team-high 20.3 points in the last eight games... the Bulls do not play at home against until Feb. 11.

UP NEXT: For the Bulls, Wednesday @ San Antonio, Saturday @ New Orleans, Monday @ Sacramento. For the Timberwolves, Wednesday vs. New Orleans, Friday vs. Memphis, Saturday @ Atlanta.
