MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Alexey Shved made two 3-pointers and scored 12 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 82-75 exhibition victory over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. Nikola Pekovic had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and Brandon Roy added 13 points in his comeback attempt. Kirk Hinrich led the Bulls with 15 points, Joakim Noah added 14 points and 13 rebounds. Nazr Mohammed finished with 10 points for Chicago. The Bulls led 60-58 after three quarters, but Shved, a member of the Russian Olympic team who signed with the Minnesota over the summer, helped the Wolves grab control. He made a free throws with 7:59 to give Minnesota the lead for good at 67-66, and added five points in an 11-0 Minnesota run midway through the fourth quarter.
