Last night Minnesota Timberwolves topped Houston Rockets 111:98. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic led Timberwolves to another one win in this season.

Nikola Pekovic scored 30 points as career-high and added 12 rebounds to another one double-double score. For 42 minutes he also had 3 blocks and 3 steals.

This was thrid win from four games for Minnesota Timberwolves against Houston Rockets in this season.

Rick Adelman said: “We thought we had a big advantage before the game with Love and Pek inside. A lot of people haven’t paid attention to Pek, but he’s been doing this to everybody.”

Ricky Rubio had good night with 18 points and 9 assists, but 6 turnovers as well. He even apologized to coach Rick Adelman just after the game.

He promised that he will take better care of turnovers in coming games. So, another one great role for Nikola Pekovic. After game, Kevin Love said: “Pekovic is a rising star, he has a great season, and we are very happy to have him.”

Darko Milicic didn’t play again, and I am sure that beside Pekovic he won’t play too much in this season anymore. Pac-Man got his chance and he doing his job at the best possible way.
