The Timberwolves went into halftime down by four points 55-51 Sunday against the Blazers, and they returned to make a major comeback in front of the sold-out crowd at the Target Center. Thanks to big points by Kevin Martin (29 for the night) and Gary Neal (27 points), the Wolves walked away with a 121-113 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

“It was nice to see that everyone that went in the game had some sort of contributing factor in the game,” Coach Flip Saunders tells NBA.com.

Andrew Wiggins had 18 points and was a key player after halftime. Ricky Rubio walked away with a double-double for the night, racking up 13 points and fifteen assists. He was two rebounds away from making it a triple-double.

NBA.com notes, "Neal scored 11 consecutive points for the Wolves in the final frame and also knocked down a handful of free throws late in the contest to put the game on ice. He finished 8-for-11 from the field in the game and 10-for-13 from the charity stripe."

Next up, the Wolves head to L.A. to play the Clippers in a late game that starts at 9:30 p.m.
