Kevin Martin scored 27 points, Kevin Love had 18 of his 25 points during Minnesota’s 47-point first quarter, and the Timberwolves snapped a 22-game losing streak against the Los Angeles Lakers with a 113-90 victory Sunday night.
The league informed the Timberwolves that the referee crew should have called Kobe Bryant for a foul on a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are trying hard to land Pau Gasol. If they have to part with the highest draft choice in franchise history after just one season, the Wolves appear ready to do it.
A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Minnesota Timberwolves rookie sensation Ricky Rubio is out for the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee.
Jeremy Lin and Ricky Rubio aren’t just responsible for reviving their dormant franchises. They also are giving the NBA two fresh young faces to market internationally.
Pau and Marc Gasol combined for 46 points and 18 rebounds Friday to help Spain rout Serbia 84-59 and advance to the quarterfinals of the European Championship.
