Notebook: Wolves 112, Rockets 110


Jim Beilby, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Apr 12, 2014 1:05 AM - Updated Sat Apr 12, 2014 1:05 AM

THE FACT: Corey Brewer scored a career-high 51 points and joined Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, and Rick Barry as the only players to score 50-plus points and get 6-plus steals in one game.

THE LEAD: With Minnesota's top three scorers injured and with the Houston Rockets in town, Minnesota coach, Rick Adelman was wondering where he was going to get his scoring from. Brewer answered his question and answered it in record-setting fashion as he led the Minnesota Timberwolves to victory over the Houston Rockets, 112-110.

Brewer's 51 points came on 19-for-30 shooting and was a significant improvement on his previous career best of 29. His 51 points is the most for Minnesota this season and the most in a regulation game in franchise history. Brewer also set career marks in field goals made (19), field goals attempted (30), and free throws attempted (15).

And, as icing on the cake, Brewer hit a 49' buzzer-beater at halftime.

Rookie Gorgui Dieng also made a huge contribution, scoring 12 and grabbing 20 rebounds, ten of which came on the offensive glass. Even more important, Dieng hit the final two field goals of the game for Minnesota, including the game winner with 4.6 second left.

James Harden scored 33 in the loss and was just two rebounds from a triple double (10 assists and 8 rebounds). and Chandler Parsons added 27 on 11-for-19 shooting.

QUOTABLE: "I knew it was going to be a good night when I banked it (my half court shot) in. But I wasn't thinking about a 50 point night. Before the game I was like 'I'm getting 30 tonight. Nobody's playing, I'm getting 30.' I was messing around, to be honest. Fifty-one, though? I was like 'I'll take it'."
-- Minnesota forward Brewer

THE STAT: Minnesota outscored Houston 39-17 on the fast break, Minnesota's highest output in that category this season. The previous high was 30 (November 4 at Cleveland). They converted on all 15 of their fast break opportunities. And Houston gave up the ball 22 times, leading to 28 Minnesota points.

TURNING POINT: Lack of defensive effort from Houston early in the game led to a 15 point first quarter lead by Minnesota. But Houston finished the first quarter and started the second with a 20-6 run to close the gap to one. The remainder of the game was very close with neither team able to build more than a seven point lead. With Minnesota leading by three, James Harden tied the game with a 3-pointer with 17.3 seconds to play in the game. On the ensuing possession, Ricky Rubio found Dieng who fumbled the pass, but regained control and hit a 6' jumpshot to give Minnesota the two point lead. Harden could not handle the in-bounds pass and did not get a last second shot off.

QUOTABLE II: "Turnovers, 22. Offensive rebounds, 18 for them. Loose balls, 50/50 balls. We didn't come up with any of them. Every 505/50 ball, every time there was a chance to make a toughness play, we didn't make it."
-- Houston coach, Kevin McHale

HOT: Brewer scored 16 of his 51 points in the first quarter, shooting 7-for-8 and terrorizing the Rockets on the fast break. The Wolves built a 15-point lead in the first half with the help of 15 fast break points in the first seven minutes of the game.

NOT: Minnesota's bench was a combined 2-for-12 from the floor.

GOOD MOVE: Brewer's postgame interview was delayed by over an hour because he had to complete a league mandated drug test, but he was dehydrated and could not produce a urine sample. Upon finishing the drug test and being asked which was the more impressive achievement, filling the cup or scoring over 50, Brewer said: "Getting my drug test done."

QUOTABLE III: "Obviously, Corey was incredible. Unbelievable game. I don't know where he works up the energy he has. I mean, 45 minutes in and he is still going strong at the end. I think maybe Pek (Nikola Pekovic) and the two Kevins (Love and Martin) have been holding him back."
- Minnesota coach, Rick Adelman

NOTABLE: Rubio needs seven more assists to pass Pooh Richardson and move into third place on the teams single season assists list. ... With his 6 steals, Brewer has four straight games with 4-plus steals, the longest such streak in the league since Baron David tallied seven straight games in 2003. ... Houston had defeated Minnesota easily in their three matchups this season, winning by an average of 17 points per game.

UP NEXT: For Minnesota, Sunday at Sacramento, Monday at Golden State, Wednesday vs. Utah. For Houston, Saturday vs. New Orleans, Monday vs. San Antonio, Wednesday at New Orleans.
