Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Return to fame
It had been six or seven years since TNT had broadcasted a Minnesota Timberwolves game.
Kevin Garnett had long been a fixture that made the Timberwolves relevant. But as the team fell apart and the franchise eventually moved Garnett on to a new home, the Timberwolves fell into despondency. They were more than irrelevant. The Wolves became the butt of a lot of jokes.
To some extent, they are still battling that perception. Kevin Love's questions about the franchise's future and his own recently shed some light on a franchise that is still figuring things out.
If there are more games like Thursday's 99-93 win over the streaking Thunder, however, TNT will be in Minneapolis much more often and the Timberwolves will find themselves fighting for more than Lottery position.
Nikola Pekovic dominated the first half with the Wolves moving the ball seamlessl...
BEST OF MAXIM
MINNEAPOLIS No one waited for Ricky Rubio.They scattered fast, the Minnesota Timberwolves, after Thursday's 99-93 upset of the Thunder, but Rubio remained in his signature long ice bath, doing whatever he does that last year made the media queue at his locker, clawing their way to the front of the scrum, deadlines seemingly irrelevant.A week ago, following his debut, Rubio talked...

Here's a closer look at the 99-93 win by the numbers:12 games: The win snapped the Thunder's 12-game winning streak and their 12-game winning streak over the Timberwolves...
For the first time here on That NBA Lottery Pick, we feature a clip or story about Minnesota Timberwolves import Alexey Shved.During the Timberwolves 99-93 victory tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Shved found Kevin Love on a three-pointer with an over-the-head pass:
The entire Minnesota Timberwolves organization, the emotion of their victory over the mighty Oklahoma City Thunder still coursing through their veins, ran up to Kevin Love, spread their arms and implored him:
“How do you like us now?”
OK, nobody did that. They would have been forgiven if they had, however. Ten days after arguably the best power forward in the NBA was quoted in...
Josh Howard has a torn ACL and will be waived by the Timberwolves.
The Minnesota Timberwolves ended the Thunder's 12 game winning streak last night when they beat them 99-93. The wolves were lead by Kevin Love like usual with 28 points and 11 boards. On the other side of the ball Kevin Durant lead the way with 33 points and two of them came in a very unusual way. Check out the video below of Durant taking the ball to the hole and drawing...
MINNEAPOLIS -- The smallest player on the court helped fell a team of NBA giants Thursday night at Target Center. Guard J.J. Barea scored 14 fourth-quarter points -- including 12 straight Minnesota points at one juncture -- as the Timberwolves earned a 99-93 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. It was a stunning wire-to-wire victory for Minnesota, which never trailed while...
MINNEAPOLIS -- On the Minnesota Timberwolves' roster, guard J.J. Barea is listed at an even 6 feet. That is a significant exaggeration. And yet, the smallest player on the Target Center court Thursday night ended up standing the tallest, felling the streaking Oklahoma City Thunder in the process. Barea scored 14 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, including 12 Minnesota...
I know it's part of the NBA collective bargaining agreement for players to do a lot of this charity stuff, but I still love seeing it. Nice to see this side of Kevin Garnett as well.
