Notebook: Timberwolves 110, Spurs 91


Jim Beilby, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Apr 09, 2014 12:33 AM - Updated Wed Apr 09, 2014 12:33 AM

THE FACT: The Timberwolves never trailed, handing the Spurs only their second loss in the last 22 games.

THE LEAD: Ricky Rubio led the way with 25 points on 10-for-17 shooting and seven assists as the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves surprised the red-hot San Antonio Spurs 110-91 Tuesday night at the Target Center. The Wolves prevailed despite missing Nikola Pekovic (right ankle), Kevin Martin (right foot), Chase Budinger (right ankle), and Shabazz Muhammad (right knee)

Minnesota has been eliminated from playoff contention for the 10th straight season, the longest drought in team history and the longest active drought in the NBA. On the positive side, with a 39-38 record, Minnesota has the chance to finish at .500 or better for the first time since 2004-2005.

The Spurs are playing for home court advantage throughout the playoffs, but they were depleted as well. Tony Parker was not with the team because of back spasms and Manu Ginobli left the game in the third quarter with a left calf contusion and did not return. Tim Duncan had an atypical game, playing less than 20 minutes. Cory Joseph and Boris Diaw led the Spurs, each scoring 13 points.

Kevin Love overcame a rough shooting night to tally 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Wolves and rookie Gorgui Dieng continued his recent strong play with 12 points and 15 rebounds, seven of which came on the offensive glass.

In its last three games, Minnesota has defeated the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs.

QUOTABLE: "The Timberwolves played great. ... They basically forced us to lay an egg. We were awful. And a lot of if was because of their aggressiveness. They played great D. They have great pace on offense. And they beat us in every facet of the game."
-- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich

THE STAT: Minnesota held San Antonio to 34 first-half points, the fewest first-half total for the Spurs this season, and the second fewest first-half points for a Minnesota opponent. Minnesota also outrebounded San Antonio 63-46.

TURNING POINT: After trailing by as many as 28 points, the Spurs made a strong push in the first half of the fourth quarter. Matt Bonner and Cory Joseph both got on a roll and cut Minnesota's lead to 15. Rick Adelman responded by putting Rubio back in the game, which stabilized Minnesota's offense, allowing the Wolves to rebuild a 20-point lead and secure a comfortable margin of victory.

QUOTABLE II: "I liked the way we played. We came out and played solid. The guys off the bench came in and did a nice job. [San Antonio] missed a lot of shots in the first half, but we were doing what we wanted to. We wanted to make them into jump shooters and not give them layups because they are such a great passing team and they cut to the basket, and we were at least able to limit that some."
-- Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman

NOTABLE: With his 19 points, Love passed Kevin Garnett and moved into third place on the franchise single-season scoring list. He needs 12 more points to pass Tony Campbell and move into second place. ... This game was originally scheduled to take place in Mexico City on December 4, but was canceled due to an electrical fire and an inability to clear the smoke from the arena. ... With a win and a Oklahoma City loss, San Antonio could have secured home court advantage throughout the playoffs.

UP NEXT: For Minnesota, Wednesday vs. Chicago, Friday vs. Houston, Sunday @t Sacramento. For San Antonio, Thursday @Dallas, Friday vs. Phoenix, Monday @ Houston.
