Notebook: Wolves 143, Lakers 107


Peter Kapsner, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 29, 2014 2:00 AM - Updated Sat Mar 29, 2014 2:00 AM

THE FACT: Kevin Love grabbed his second career triple-double.

THE LEAD: Minnesota destroyed an inept L.A. Lakers squad 143-107 at Target Center Friday night. Nikola Pekovic returned from a six-game absence to lead the extremely efficient Wolves (36-35) attack with 26 points, while Love racked up a triple-double with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in just 29 minutes of action. The Lakers (24-48) were led by Kent Bazemore with 21 points and Jodie Meeks added 19.

The blowout began early with the Wolves making it look like an NBA All-Star game, casting up 3-pointers, finding wide open teammates slashing to the basket, and attacking the rim with little to no resistance in route to 41 first quarter points. They kept their foot on the pedal from there, piling up 74 points by halftime for a 31-point advantage.

QUOTABLE: "It was obviously a good game for us. Good to have Pek' back. He really set the tone inside for us..."
--Minnesota coach Rick Adelman

THE STAT: Love's career season shows no signs of slowing down even though the Wolves are out of the playoff hunt. He notched his second career triple-double in just three quarters, corralling a bouncing rebound just before time expired at the end of the third.

QUOTABLE II: "We were having fun with (the triple-double), but there came a point with like three minutes left in the third where there were a couple turnovers in a row and we were trying to force the issue a little bit. So we just played and that's how things happen."
--Kevin Love commenting the pursuit of the triple-double

HOT: Minnesota remains dominant in the opening 12 minutes, scoring more than 30 points a league-leading 33 times, including in six of the last eight games. The fast starts are even more pronounced against the Lakers as they've outscored Los Angeles 150-97 in the first quarter of their four meetings this season.

GOOD MOVE: Adelman inserting Pekovic back into the starting lineup after his absence. Adelman was questioned before the game how he'd handle Pekovic's return given how well rookie Gorgui Dieng performed in Pek's absence, but Adelman didn't hesitate putting his big man back among the starters. Pek dismantled Chris Kaman and the Lakers early, scoring 12 points in the first eight minutes and spurring the Wolves to their huge first quarter lead.

TURNING POINT: Mike D'Antoni filling out the lineup sheet. His starting five was down 17-4 just over four minutes in and D'Antoni swapped all five of them out halfway through the first quarter with the Lakers down 23-7.

QUOTABLE III: "We came out unfocused and not ready to play and then when that happens, guys start going one-on-one to try to get their numbers in a way that they won't look bad. Then you have a total breakdown and we had a total breakdown."
--L.A. coach Mike D'Antoni

NOT: The Lakers are widely regarded as a likely landing spot for Love if he opts out of his contract following next season. However, Los Angeles needs to demonstrate they have some kind of future as Love's consistent message is to sign with a team that's in contention. The current Lakers roster seemingly lacks any real cohesion or identity.

INSIDE THE ARENA: There was some pregame buzz about the future of Adelman after a report surfaced on ESPN that he is likely walking away.

QUOTABLE IV: "I don't even know what report that is...ESPN has a lot of reports, a lot of experts, a lot of channels. I don't watch them all."
--Minnesota coach Rick Adelman denying any knowledge of such a report

NOTABLE: Steve Nash was expected to sit out the current road trip but he returned tonight to play 14 minutes, scoring four points and handing out six assists...The Timberwolves beat the Lakers three times in a season for the first time since 2006-07. Their margin of victory was the largest in the history of the series...Nick Young's streak of three games with more than 20 points was broken tonight as he scored just 11...With one steal tonight Ricky Rubio tied Tyrone Corbin for the Wolves season-record in steals at 175.

UP NEXT: For the Wolves, Sunday @ Brooklyn, Tuesday vs. L.A. Clippers. Wednesday vs. Memphis. For the Lakers, Sunday vs. Phoenix, Tuesday vs. Portland, Wednesday @ Sacramento.
