Notebook: Timberwolves 112, Bucks 101


Jim Beilby, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Mar 12, 2014 12:04 AM - Updated Wed Mar 12, 2014 12:04 AM

THE FACT: The Minnesota Timberwolves came back from a double-digit deficit for just the second time and the Milwaukee Bucks are still the only team in the league to not have back-to-back victories this season.

THE LEAD: The Milwaukee Bucks got off to a great start, hitting their first 12 shots and building an early lead. But the Minnesota Timberwolves were able to hang around and keep it close enough to make a fourth quarter run and secure a much needed victory, 112-101.

In the first half, Minnesota guard J.J. Barea overcame a two-week-long shooting slump and kept Minnesota within striking range of the red-hot Bucks. He connected on his first six shots and scored 17 points in the first half -- three more than his combined total over the last three games. In the second half, the Bucks' sloppy play gave Minnesota a much needed boost. Milwaukee turned the ball over six times in the third quarter, leading to 14 Minnesota points.

Minnesota's increased defensive energy led to better offense as Kevin Martin, for one, found his shooting touch. He scored 12 of his 26 points in the third quarter as Minnesota turned a six-point, first-half deficit into a two-point advantage going into the final quarter.

Kevin Love also overcame a slow start to score 18 points in the second half. He finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds, giving him his league-leading 53rd double-double. His six assists also gave him his third straight 20/10/5 game, the longest such streak of his career.

The Bucks had six players score in double digits, led by Brandon Knight with 21 points, his third straight 20+ point game, matching his longest streak of the year. Zaza Pachulia dished out a career-high 10 assists and Jeff Adrien continued his strong play leading Milwaukee's bench with 12 points on 5-for-6 shooting.

The win keeps Minnesota's playoff hopes alive, but they will need some help. Minnesota sits in the 10th spot in the Western Conference. The victory allowed the Wolves to pick up a half game on the inactive Suns. But a big victory over Portland kept Memphis' lead on Minnesota at five games.

QUOTABLE: "[At halftime] we talked defensively about what we could do. I told them 'Look, we are lucky we are only six down, we are very fortunate.' [In the first half] we shared the wealth. Every starter [for Milwaukee] had a basket in the first six minutes of the game. We were too soft. They made shots, but we let them go wherever they wanted to go."
-- Minnesota coach, Rick Adelman

THE STAT: After shooting 71.4 percent in the first quarter, by the end of the game Milwaukee's shooting percentage had dropped to a still respectable 52.7 percent. In addition, Milwaukee outrebounded Minnesota 53-45. But the Bucks gave up the ball 15 times, leading to 30 Minnesota points -- the third time Minnesota scored 30+ points off turnovers this season. And Minnesota shot 58.8 percent in the pivotal fourth quarter.

TURNING POINT: After Milwaukee expanded its six-point halftime lead to 10, Minnesota responded with a 19-8 run. Love scored the last eight points of Minnesota's run. The result was a one-point lead that Minnesota would never relinquish. In the fourth quarter, an 18-3 Minnesota run expanded a two-point lead to 17, giving Minnesota a comfortable margin of victory.

QUOTABLE II: "It was a good start. I thought for three quarters we played really well. I thought we did some good things. At the end of the day, we turned the ball over 15 times and that resulted in 30 points for them. And we had some bad shot selection in the fourth quarter and on the road those are as good as a turnover."
-- Milwaukee coach Larry Drew

HOT: Milwaukee started the game 12-for-12 and did not miss a shot until the 4:35 mark of the first quarter. Brandon Knight was 5-for-5 for 10 points in that stretch.

NOT: Milwaukee only shot 35.7 percent (5-for-14) in the pivotal final quarter.

QUOTABLE III: "[In the second half] we just stopped attacking and moving bodies. All we did was settle with outside jump shots. That's how it looked to me and you can't win the game just from outside. In the first half the flow was so good. We were moving the ball from side to side. And in the second half, we just stopped doing that and there was no pace and we let them get defensive stops."
-- Milwaukee center Zaza Pachulia

NOTABLE: Minnesota has won the last four games against Milwaukee and 12 of the last 14 at Target Center. ... Milwaukee center, Ersan Ilyasova missed the game with a sore left ankle. ... Minnesota backup guard A.J. Price underwent an appendectomy on Sunday and will be sidelined indefinitely. ... With Tuesday's loss, Milwaukee has now lost 13 of its last 14 road games and is 2-23 against the Western Conference.

UP NEXT: For the Wolves, Friday @ Charlotte, Sunday vs. Sacramento, Wednesday @ Dallas. For the Bucks, Thursday @ Atlanta, Saturday @ New York, Sunday @ Charlotte.
