Zach Randolph had 26 points and 12 rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies overcame another strong effort by Kevin Love to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 94-90 Friday night.
It was 1979. Music was funky, Jack Sikma’s hair was shaggy, and the Seattle SuperSonics were NBA champions. Thirty-four years later, the city’s only “big four” professional sports championship still belongs to a team that no longer exists.
The Minnesota Timberwolves will be without center Nikola Pekovic for a while.
Both the Chicago Bulls and the Minnesota Timberwolves were missing their starting centers. The Timberwolves were able to overcome the adversity. Kevin Love scored 31 points to lead the Timberwolves over the Bulls 95-86 Monday night. Ronny Turiaf added 14 points for the Timberwolves, who snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Bulls and won for the fourth time in five games overall.
The idea of Nikola Pekovic making the Western Conference All-Star team is music to the Minnesota Timberwolves’ ears. The Wolves have started a campaign to get their big center into his first All-Star game. The Wolves sent out a vinyl album featuring the “Bruise Brothers.”
Everyone it seems was talking about the showdown between Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge and Minnesota’s Kevin Love. Except Aldridge and Love.
The streak that has haunted Minnesota all season is finally over. After losing 11 straight games decided by four points or less, the Timberwolves wouldn’t let another opportunity slip away.
Surprise, Kevin Love. You’re an All-Star starter. The Minnesota Timberwolves’ forward was voted a Western Conference starter Thursday night, leap-frogging Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard in the final balloting to earn the first starting nod of his career.
For the second time, Minnesota Timberwolves star forward Kevin Love has been named to the initial roster for the U.S. Nation Team for 2014-16. The roster was released Thursday morning by USA Basketball, and Love was one of 28 players named.
It took some time for the Montenegrin train to get rolling. Nikola Pekovic spent the first month of the season trying to find his way after signing a monster contract this summer. The big center had to adjust to Kevin Love’s return from injury and Kevin Martin’s addition in free agency.
Kevin Love had 19 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists to help the Minnesota Timberwolves run past Utah 112-97 on Tuesday night and sweep a home-and-home set with the Jazz.
Nikola Pekovic had 27 points and 14 rebounds in three quarters, and the reeling Minnesota Timberwolves blasted the Utah Jazz, 98-72 on Saturday night. Kevin Love had 18 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, and Kevin Martin scored 20 points to help the Wolves snap a three-game losing streak that included losses to Sacramento and Toronto.
Kyle Lowry scored 24 points, Amir Johnson had 19 and the Toronto Raptors beat Minnesota 94-89 on Friday night for their 10th straight home victory over the Timberwolves.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are struggling, and Ricky Rubio puts a lot of the responsibility on his shoulders. Rubio is shooting just 34.6 percent this season and scoring 8.6 points per game. Those numbers are the lowest of his short career. He had five turnovers and was benched for the fourth quarter of a home loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. The magic that made him one of the most exciting players in the NBA when he arrived from Spain has been absent this season while the Timberwolves have started a disappointing 18-20.
Rudy Gay had 33 points, five rebounds and six assists, and Isaiah Thomas had 26 points and seven assists to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 111-108 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
