Notebook: Timberwolves 121, Jazz 104


Andrew Aragon, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Feb 23, 2014 1:06 AM - Updated Sun Feb 23, 2014 1:06 AM

THE FACT: Kevin Love recorded his first career triple-double and had his ninth straight game with at least 25 points and 10 rebounds.

THE LEAD: Minnesota superstar Kevin Love has put together numerous statistical milestones throughout his six-year career, but a triple-double remained elusive. Until Saturday night.

Love had 37 points, 12 rebounds and a career-high 10 assists -- in a little more than three quarters -- in the Wolves' 121-104 victory over the Utah Jazz. Love, who up until this season had consistently struggled in games in Utah, drained six 3-pointers and scored 22 of his points during a decisive third quarter.

Love's triple-double became official after he threw an outlet pass that traveled almost the entire length of the court to Corey Brewer, who then made a layup.

Love's huge night was needed by his team as it was missing Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Martin and Ronny Turiaf due to injuries. Love has scored more than 30 points in four straight games, tying Kevin Garnett's franchise record.

Ricky Rubio had 15 points and seven assists, while Chase Budinger and Brewer each scored 13 points for the Wolves.

Minnesota is 3-0 against Utah this season, winning the three games by a combined 58 points.

For the Jazz, Enes Kanter tied a career-high with 25 points and he collected seven rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "It just shows for this year and through my first six years in the league how my game's progressed, being able to find different guys. I think it's kind of a product of these guys (Pekovic, Martin and Turiaf) being out and having to step up in different ways. I'm just taking what the defense gives me."
-- Kevin Love on the significance of his first triple-double

THE STAT: The Wolves are fantastic frontrunners, as they improved to 19-9 in games that are decided by 10 or more points.

TURNING POINT: The game was tied 41-41 with 3:47 left in the second quarter. The Timberwolves then put some distance between themselves and the Jazz by outscoring Utah 18-8 to close the first half. Budinger buried two 3-pointers while Rubio and Brewer each converted three-point plays to pace the Wolves. Minnesota went into halftime with a double-digit lead and Utah never got closer the rest of the way.

HOT: As well as it closed the first half, Minnesota was even better to start the second half. Love scored the Wolves' first eight points, and the team made four of its first five shots after the break. Minnesota built a 23-point lead while shooting 55 percent in the third quarter.

NOT: Gordon Hayward's shooting woes in February have been well documented. And after going 0-for-2 from 3-point range and 2-for-10 overall, his numbers fell to 6-for-34 from 3-point range (17.6 percent) and 30-for-101 (29.7 percent) overall for the month. Hayward, even when he isn't shooting well, usually finds a way to impact the game. That wasn't the case on Saturday, however, as he recorded no assists and zero rebounds in 24 minutes.

QUOTABLE II: "He certainly dominated this game. That third quarter was incredible."
-- Minnesota coach Rick Adelman on Love's performance

GOOD MOVE: The Jazz clearly have matchup problems with the Wolves, and Minnesota attacked and exploited them. In the first half, the Wolves pounded the ball inside and scored at the rim. After halftime, Love took his game outside and sank 3-pointers. Utah had no answers -- and especially had no one to slow Love.

BAD MOVE: Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said in pregame that his team needed to control tempo and limit transition baskets by Minnesota. Utah failed miserably in both areas. The Wolves' quick-strike offense was aided by full court, over-the-top passes that resulted in easy baskets. The entire game was played at Minnesota's pace, as the Wolves had a 24-13 edge in fast-break points.

NOTABLE: Love's run of at least 25 points and 10 rebounds in nine straight games is the longest since Shaquille O'Neal did it in 13 consecutive games in 2001. ... Utah was without starting center Derrick Favors for the third straight game because of a strained right hip. ... Kyle Lowry was the last player to record a triple-double against the Jazz. He did it as a member of the Houston Rockets in 2011. ... Malcolm Thomas earned his first two points as a member of the Jazz and they came spectacularly as he scored on a follow dunk. ... Gorgui Dieng, who was selected by the Jazz as part of the deal they made to acquire Trey Burke on draft day, had a career-high eight points for Minnesota.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Sunday @ Portland, Tuesday @ Phoenix, Saturday @ Sacramento. For the Jazz, Monday vs. Boston, Wednesday vs. Phoenix, Friday @ Cleveland.
