Much of the damage was done by Harden who was 5-of-7 from the three-point line, but there were others. Trevor Ariza and Josh Smith each knocked down three a piece.

3. Bjelica double-double

On the bright side for the Wolves, Nemanja Bjelica continues to show the promise the Wolves had hoped for when they signed him. He posted a double-double Monday night with 11 points and 14 rebounds.

It was his second straight.
