The Minnesota Timberwolves will be taking a trip to Charlotte to face the Bobcats in a game of .500 teams. The Bobcats will be looking forward to putting on a better show than the last time they played as they were trounced 119-92. Nikola Pekovic led the Timberwolves on that night with 26 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals in the win. Kevin Love added 19 points, 14 rebounds and four assists, and Kevin Martin added 19 points on 9-of-12 shooting.
One of the biggest deciding factors in this game was the 54-33 rebounding advantage Minnesota had over Charlotte. The advantage led to a lot of fast break points and easy put back buckets. The Timberwolves' hot shooting had them out to a 68-48 lead at the half. The game was essentially over by that point and even though the Bobcats played better in the second half, there was just too much work to do to get back into this game.
The Bobcats were led by Anthony Tolliver with 21 points and three rebounds. 15 of those points came on 3-pointers in which he was 5-for-5. Chris Douglas-Roberts chipped in with 16 points and two rebounds.
