The Big Game 1-23-12: Rockets 107 Timberwolves 92

If you want to win in the NBA, you've gotta win the 4th quarter. Coach Kevin McHale's Houston Rockets won the 4th quarter Monday night at the Target Center, 31-21, and won the game 107-92. Houston took the early lead, but the Timberwolves fought back to lead 70-65 late in the 3rd. From there it was all Houston--or, at least, it was 42-22 Houston. The Wolves went down pretty much without a whimper.

Player of the Day

Kevin Love scored 39 points on 13-of-19 shooting (68 percent). His teammates shot 20-for-61 (33 percent). Luke Ridnour and Anthony Randolph combined to shoot 10-of-19 (53 percent). The rest of the Wolves shot 10-for-42 (24 percent).

Coach of the Day

Who else but Minnesota native Kevin McHale, owner of a 7 game NBA winning streak.
