Notebook: Bobcats 105, Timberwolves 93


Bill Kiser, for NBA.com
Posted Fri Mar 14, 2014 10:33 PM - Updated Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:27 AM

THE FACT: After an embarassing 27-point loss on the Minnesota Timberwolves' home court two months ago, the Charlotte Bobcats returned the favor Friday night en route to their eighth consecutive home victory and fifth win in the last six games.

THE LEAD: Al Jefferson had 25 points and 16 rebounds, and five other players finished in double figures as the Bobcats used a big second-quarter run to beat the Timberwolves 105-93 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C.

Gary Neal added a season-high 19 points and four others -- Gerald Henderson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cody Zeller and Chris Douglas-Roberts -- had 10 points each for Charlotte (32-34), which led by as many as 18 points in the second half.

Kevin Martin scored 19 points and Kevin Love 18 for Minnesota (32-32), but Love was held scoreless in the second half. Corey Brewer and Dante Cunningham added 10 points each.

QUOTABLE: "It was a tough game for us. They just played better than we did. We didn't play much, if any, defense in this game. I don't know how these guys felt, but myself, I was particularly tired. It was just a tough game from the start. We scored 33 points in the first quarter, but they kept making shots and we didn't make stops."
-- Love

THE STAT: After the Timberwolves' starters shot 57.9 percent from the field in a 33-point first quarter, their reserves managed just 8 of 21 (38 percent) in the second quarter. Meanwhile, the Bobcats carried over their 57.7-percent shooting in the first quarter into the second quarter, shooting 54.2 percent for the half and leading 65-53 at the break.

TURNING POINT: Minnesota center Nikola Pekovic, all of 6-foot-11 and 285 pounds, drew the primary duty of guarding Jefferson, and nearly played him even in the first half -- Pekovic had eight points and four rebounds, Jefferson 12 points and five boards. But Pekovic, who missed nearly the entire month of February with an ankle injury, came out with 9:40 left in the third quarter with soreness in his right ankle. That opened up the inside for the Bobcats, who outscored the Timberwolves 26-14 in the paint in the final two quarters.

QUOTABLE II: "The difference now is skill level. We made a trade and got two guys that when you look at their strengths, it starts with their skill levels and basketball IQ. Then with the way CDR (Douglas-Roberts) emerged here and Cody's development, that's a skilled group out there. There's more ball movement. They can play pick and roll, they can run catch-and-shoot plays for Gary (Neal) and get the ball moving."
-- Bobcats coach Steve Clifford on Charlotte's reserves

HOT: The Bobcats' Neal in the second quarter -- he scored 11 of his 16 first-half points in the period, hitting 3 of 4 from the field (including a pair of 3-pointers) and going 3 of 3 from the free throw line. That allowed Charlotte to break a 33-33 tie at the end of the first quarter, and lead by as many as 16 points with less than a minute remaining in the first half.

NOT: Minnesota's Love in the second half. He scored 18 points in the first half on 7 of 10 shooting (including 2 of 3 on 3-pointers), but went ice cold -- possibly as a result of having to pick up the inside defensive slack created by Pekovic's absence -- over the final two quarters (0 of 7 from the field).

BAD MOVE: Actually a bad call -- Kidd-Gilchrist was called for a foul on Love with 4:19 left in the first quarter. However, the replay shown (repeatedly) on the main scoreboard showed a clean block.

ROOKIE WATCH: Zeller had his 10th double-figure scoring game this season, and his first in five games. He also finished with nine rebounds, equaling his career high, and outscored and outrebounded all three of Minnesota's rookies combined -- Shabazz Muhammad had four points and one rebound, Gorgui Dieng two points and two boards, and Robbie Hummel two rebounds.

NOTABLE: The Bobcats outrebounded the Timberwolves 54-35 -- holding an opponent to under 40 rebounds for the 16th time this season, while breaking the 50-rebound mark for the ninth time and the first time in 20 games.

NOTABLE II: Charlotte's bench had one of its most-productive games of the season, with three players in double figures. In all, the Bobcats' reserves outscored Minnesota's reserves 47-32.

NOTABLE III: Charlotte's eighth consecutive home victory is the second-best streak in franchise history, and is one away from tying the team record of nine straight, set between Dec. 22, 2009-Jan. 20, 2010. The Bobcats can tie the record when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.

NOTABLE IV: Jefferson recorded his 41st double-double of the season, the most of his career.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Sunday vs. Kings, Wednesday @ Mavericks, Thursday @ Rockets. For the Bobcats, Sunday @ Bucks, Monday vs. Hawks, Wednesday @ Nets.
