Wolves get back to back wins with a come from behind victory at Target Center

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

The Timberwolves overcame a disastrous first quarter to beat the 76ers at home and move back to .500 on the season.

Trailing 39-20 after one, the Wolves worked their way back into the game, culminating in a big fourth quarter in which they overcame the Sixers and won 106-99. It was their usual combination of rebounds, free throws, and turnovers that got them the win tonight, as they were badly outshot from the field.

Kevin Love led the way with 26 and 15, and both Nikola Pekovic and Ricky Rubio finished with 20 points. Robbie Hummel was huge off the bench with 10 points in the 2nd half, including some big baskets during the key run in the fourth quarter that got the Wolves the lead.  He actually finished out the game with the starters as it was an off night for Kevin Martin.

Tim will be back with a full recap later. This is your postgame thread.
