The Timberwolves are on a road trip to the east coast where they will square off against Philadelphia and Boston on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Kevin Love has recovered from an illness and will play in both games. Andrei Kirilenko, however, did not make the trip. He's still out with back spasms.
Fellow Russian Alexey Shved is thriving as a role player for the Wolves. He tells FOX Sports North that he enjoys coming off the bench because he's comfortable finishing games. Head coach Rick Adelman has been using Shved a lot in the fourth quarter. He says it's a good spot for him because the game "slows down" in the last quarter.
