With Pekovic Gone, Wolves In Pain

One thing is clear: they need him back as soon as possible. Kevin Love was almost unstoppable Saturday night with 43 points and 19 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough to pull off a win.

Ricky Rubio Searches For The Magic He’s Lost

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.
