The Big Game 1-30-12: T-Wolves Win Again

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.
