Wolves pulverize Philadelphia, put up 125

64 first half points and 61 second half points is an easy way to all but guarantee yourself a win, and the Wolves did just that, pounding Philadelphia 125-102 in their second-to-last exhibition game of the preseason.

J.J. Barea led the Wolves, putting up 22 points in just 17 minutes, showing his ability to be a spark plug off the bench, while Kevin Love added 19 in 16 minutes.

Robbie Hummel led the Wolves in minutes, checking in at 25 and being given every opportunity to win the last spots on the Minnesota roster, but was just 1-9 from the field. No one else wearing a Minnesota uniform logged more than 18 minutes on a night the Wolves played 15 different guys.

15 is what the Wolves are allowed to keep on the roster, but Corey Brewer did not play tonight, meaning one of the men that did will not be with the team going into their regular season opener Nov. 1 against Oklahoma City. Othyus Jeffers, Hummel, A.J. Price, or Lorenzo Brown are likely the four staring down the barrel of getting cut, and forward Chris Johnson seems to already be out the door, having been held out of tonight's contest by Rick Adelman.

Minnesota closes out their exhibition season with Detroit tomorrow night at The Palace of Auburn Hills at 6:30 p.m.
