Notebook: Timberwolves 117, Nuggets 90


Peter Kapsner, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Feb 12, 2014 11:21 PM - Updated Wed Feb 12, 2014 11:21 PM

THE FACT: Minnesota dominates Denver, sending the Nuggets to their fourth straight blowout loss.

THE LEAD: The Timberwolves absolutely shredded a reeling Nuggets' defense in their 117-90 rout Wednesday at Target Center. All-Star starter Kevin Love dominated the night with 32 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists and Ricky Rubio chipped in 11 points and 12 assists. J.J. Hickson had 14 points and 13 boards for Denver (24-27), which lost its fourth in a row and sixth in its last eight. The teams head into the break tied in the standings, 6 1/2 games behind the eighth seed in the West.

The game was never close as the Wolves (25-28) led by 12 after the first and expanded the lead to 22 points halfway through the second where even the Wolves' reserves had their way offensively. The starters then returned and kept pouring it on, highlighted by yet another beautiful, Tom Brady-esque bomb from Love to Corey Brewer for the dunk -- a combination that's worked all year for the Wolves. Brewer scored 22 more points tonight, many of which came on fast-break dunks.

QUOTABLE: "We don't know where he (Brewer) got the two rebounds. He was past half court for the entire game. We told him we'd check the film to find out where those came from. He was out streaking and he brings a lot of energy when he does that."
-- Wolves coach Rick Adelman

THE STAT: The Nuggets have given up at least 100 points in nine straight games.

HOT: Love rolls into All-Star break every bit the deserving starter on Sunday. He's second in the NBA in rebounding and fourth in scoring with a league-leading 44 double-doubles. He's averaging a career-high 3.9 assists, and has added a solid 3-point shot to his arsenal this year -- drilling six more from behind the arc tonight -- and will participate in the 3-point contest this weekend.

QUOTABLE II: "I'm going in there and winging it. We'll see how it goes."
-- Kevin Love on his mindset heading into the 3-Point Contest

NOT: It appears Denver is becoming the "76ers of the West" with an increasing penchant for getting blown out. It's lost its last four games by 110 points, including getting hammered by 39 points by Indiana on Monday.

GOOD MOVE: Adelman has been questioned in recent games about his use of the reserves early in the fourth quarter, often allowing leads to dissipate. Adelman stuck with three of his starters and they scored the first nine points of the quarter to blow the lead up to 34 points.

QUOTABLE III: "Forty would be nice to be ahead. I'd relax then. We have a tendency to give up points quickly. A 20 point lead can suddenly be ten going into the fourth quarter and now it's anybody's game."
-- Rick Adelman

BAD MOVE: So much for inserting Darrell Arthur into the starting lineup for defensive help. Before the game, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw indicated he felt Arthur was ready to help in their zone schemes. The Timberwolves scored 17 points in the first four minutes and 19 seconds -- a pace that put them at 188 points for the game.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: With the recent injury to Kevin Martin, Chase Budinger could prove a sneaky add for owners in need of 3-pointers. He typically camps behind the arc and has made seven 3s in his three games started in Martin's absence.

NOTABLE: Adelman returned to the bench Wednesday after missing Monday's game to attend to his wife's health.......There is no official word on the return of Ty Lawson, who suffered a fractured rib last weekend, though he is expected to return after the break.....There is also no timetable Nikola Pekovic, who has been out since late January with bursitis in his ankle......In Pekovic's absence, Ronny Turiaf has racked up double-digit rebounds in three straight games for the first time in his career.

UP NEXT: For the Wolves, Wednesday, 2/19 vs. Indiana, Saturday, 2/22 @ Utah, Sunday 2/23 @ Portland. For the Nuggets, Tuesday vs. Phoenix, Thursday, 2/20 @ Milwaukee. Friday, 2/21 @ Chicago.
