Minnesota played stellar defense as the Thunder shot just 38 percent from the floor.

Russell Westbrook posted another triple-double – his 19th of the season– with 21 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists. But he shot just 7 of 23 from the floor and had 10 turnovers. His 19 triple-doubles are the most in a single season since Wilt Chamberlain had 31 triple-doubles in 1967-68.

With the win the Wolves are 14-26 and are just three games out of a playoff spot.
