Kevin Love followed up his 51-point game with 30 points and 21 rebounds to lead the Timberwolves to a victory over the Denver Nuggets.
The Wolves racked up 68 points in the first half and never looked back on Sunday in 117-100 win over the Nuggets at the Target Center. With a sellout crowd of 20,032 the Minnesota Timberwolves handled the Western Conference's eighth-seeded team from start to finish and took one step closer to grabbing a playoff spot.
Adelman recognized that the Timberwolves needed this win to stay alive in the playoff picture. Not only that, but the Wolves will need to put forth similar efforts the rest of the year.
