What is with these guys? The Timberwolves lose to the Houston Rockets at home, then clobber 'em on the road. Minnesota scored 42 points in the 3rd quarter to turn a 56-54 half-time deficit into a 96-81 lead at the end of the quarter.
Ricky Rubio scored 12 points with 5 assists and 3 boards--and yes, that's in the 3rd period only. Michael Beasley didn't even check into the game until 5:00 of the quarter, yet added 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting. Kevin Love scored 9 in the 3rd on 3-of-3 shooting.
For the night it was Beasley, just back from a 2 week layoff with a leg injury, 34 points. Love 29 with 7 rebounds. Rubio 18 with 8 boards and 11 assists. The final was 120-108.
