Rubio, Wolves Dismantle Hornets To Snap Skid
The Minnesota Timberwolves jumped out to a 33-14 lead after one quarter and never looked back in a 115-86 blowout over New Orleans Saturday night at Target Center. The win snapped a six game losing streak for Minnesota.
Dante Cunningham led the Wolves (18-26) in scoring with 18 points on 9-9 shooting, but point guard Ricky Rubio stole the show. The Spanish point guard had seven assists and just one turnover while making some highlight-reel plays.
All twelve members of the Wolves scored at least five points in the game.
The Hornets (15-33) were led rookie forward Anthony Davis with eighteen points on 6-12 shooting.
The Timberwolves will host the Portland Trailblazers Monday night at Target Center.
