Notebook: Timberwolves 104, Kings 102


Jim Beilby, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Mar 16, 2014 11:06 PM - Updated Sun Mar 16, 2014 11:06 PM

THE FACT: Minnesota rookie, Gorgui Dieng got his first career double-double and Minnesota accumulated their 33rd win of the season, their most since the 2005-2006 season.

THE LEAD: With Minnesota (33-32) missing Nikola Pekovic and Sacramento missing DeMarcus Cousins, there was plenty of opportunity for others to step up. For Minnesota, Kevin Love scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his league-leading 54th double-double and Kevin Martin scored 31 and made crucial free throws down the stretch to seal the game for Minnesota, 104-102. A more surprising contribution for Minnesota came from rookie center Dieng. Dieng came into the game averaging 1.7 points per game and 2.3 rebounds per game in less than seven minutes per game. In Pekovic's absence, he got his first career start, his first career double-double and career highs in points (12), rebounds (11), and blocks (5). Robbie Hummel also provided a much needed spark to an otherwise anemic Minnesota bench.

He scored six quick points and made a couple of strong defensive plays at a time in the fourth quarter where it looked like Sacramento was developing some momentum.

Isaiah Thomas led the Kings (23-44) with 27 points and came close to playing the role of hero as he scored the Kings' last seven points of the game - two 3-pointers and a free throw - and put Sacramento in a position to come back and steal the game. And Derrick Williams continued to play better in Minnesota for the opposition than he did for the Timberwolves. He scored 26 points on 8-for-15 scoring and grabbed 11 rebounds. In his two games in Minnesota since being traded, he has scored 42 points and has shot 57.7 percent from the floor (15-for-26).

QUOTABLE: "Without [Dieng] we wouldn't have won this game, without Robbie [Hummel] we wouldn't have won the game. It is good to see them two, with all the hard work they've put in throughout the year and then staying ready and you never know what is going to happen."
-- Minnesota guard Martin

THE STAT: Minnesota got 18 points off 17 Sacramento turnovers and hit 30 free throws in 38 attempts (compared to 13 points off turnovers and 14 made free throws for Sacramento).

TURNING POINT: Sacramento had just erased a five point Minnesota lead and had taken a one point lead (95-94) with 1:26 to play when Corey Brewer grabbed an offensive rebound and found Love who hit a 3-pointer from the left side with a defender right in his face. The next two possessions for Sacramento resulted in a Ricky Rubio steal and a trio of missed shots, ending in a loose ball foul on Martin. For that point, Martin's free throw shooting was the nail in the Kings' coffin.

QUOTABLE II: "Another great effort by our guys, another tough road loss. I was really hoping to pull this one out and give ourselves a chance. We held a really good team to 43 percent from the field. As I mentioned in pregame, they do a really good job of getting to the foul line, [38] free throw attempts to our 19. We have to do a much better job of defending without fouling."
-- Sacramento coach Michael Malone

HOT: Martin was 14-for-14 from the free throw line, including making six crucial free throws in the final 16 seconds of the game. He ranks third in the NBA in free throw percentage at 88.9 percent and had made 45 of his last 48 free throws coming into tonight's game.

NOT: In the first half, Minnesota's bench only scored four points.

GOOD MOVE: Dieng is clearly better at defending the rim than Pekovic. Minnesota is last in the league at 3.48 blocks per game. Tonight, Dieng accumulated five blocks, tying the season high for the Wolves.

QUOTABLE III: "[Derrick Williams] had it going. He really did. He seems to play really well in the Target Center, now."
-- Minnesota forward Hummel

NOTABLE: Sacramento guard Thomas, needed just one more assist to hit 1,000 career assists. He got that assist a minute-and-a-half into the game and finished with seven for the night. ... Minnesota guard Martin needed just one 3-pointer to reach 1,000 for his career. He got it with 7:38 to play in the fourth quarter. ... Love got his league-leading 21st game with 20+ points, 10+ rebounds, and 5+ assists. ...Pekovic re-injured his right ankle in the third quarter of Minnesota's loss to the Bobcats on Friday night. He missed 13 games in January and February with the same ailment. ... Sacramento finished their seven game road trip with a 2-5 record.

UP NEXT: For Minnesota, Wednesday @ Dallas, Thursday @ Houston, Sunday vs. Phoenix. For the Kings, Tuesday vs. Washington, Friday vs. San Antonio, Sunday vs. Milwaukee.
