Notebook: Timberwolves 108, Kings 97


James Ham, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Mar 02, 2014 1:17 AM - Updated Sun Mar 02, 2014 1:17 AM

THE FACT: With a win Friday in Sacramento, the Minnesota Timberwolves have won five of their last six games and clawed their way back to .500 on the season.

THE LEAD: The Kings (20-39) made a late charge to pull to within two points, but the Timberwolves (29-29) received timely shooting and a solid defense to pull out the 108-97 victory in Sacramento.

Kevin Martin torched his former team, scoring a game-high 26 points on 9-for-16 shooting in his first game back from injury. Kevin Love struggled with his shot, but still managed to drop in 22 points, grab 10 rebounds and hand out seven assists. Nikola Pekovic added 20 points and nine rebounds in the win for Minnesota.

Rudy Gay scored a team-high 24 points on 8-for-14 shooting in the loss. DeMarcus Cousins returned from suspension to kick in a 21-point, 17-rebound double-double, while Isaiah Thomas finished with 22 points and eight assists.

QUOTABLE: "Winning on the road has been great. This is our longest road trip on the year so to be 3-1 now feels good, but we still, have a chance to finish it out in Denver and we feel like we need to do that."
-- Kevin Love on getting to .500

THE STAT: Minnesota outscored Sacramento 31-14 in the third quarter. Sacramento made a late charge, but the damage was already done.

TURNING POINT: With just under two minutes remaining, Gay missed an open court layup that would have tied the game at 95-95. Ricky Rubio nailed a 3 on the other end and the game was all but over.

QUOTABLE II: "I think I probably should have gone up and tried to dunk it, that's what I really should have actually done."
-- Rudy Gay on his timely miss

QUOTABLE III: "It was awesome. He stepped into the shot with a lot of confidence and he knocked it down. That was a huge shot for us."
-- Kevin Love on Rubio's dagger

HOT: Martin smoked the Kings in the first quarter, scoring 14 of the Timberwolves' 30 points in the quarter on 6-for-7 shooting.

NOT: After being signed earlier in the week, second-year wing Orlando Johnson had a miserable night from the field, finishing with two points on 1-for-8 shooting in 12 minutes.

BAD MOVE: Sacramento went away from Gay in the second half and the Timberwolves made them pay. After scoring 22 points in the first half, Gay missed his only three shots in the second half.

NOTABLE: Sacramento rookie Ray McCallum finished with a career-high nine points and tied his career high with five assists on the night.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Monday @ Denver, Wednesday vs. New York, Friday vs. Detroit. For the Kings, Monday vs. New Orleans, Wednesday @ Milwaukee, Friday @ Toronto.
