Wolves bounce back with decisive victory over Hawks


The Minnesota Timberwolves bounced back from three disappointing losses to beat the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday 107-83.

It was a well balanced effort from the Wolves who had five players in double-figures. Corey Brewer and Kevin Martin led the way, each scored 18 points.

The victory moves the Wolves back to .500. Winning by large margins hasn't been a problem for the Wolves this season, it has been the close games they have struggled in.

The Wolves as a team shot 50-percent from the floor, much better than they did in their loss to Memphis on Monday.

Gorgui Dieng and Kevin Love each had double-doubles. Dieng scored 15 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. Love added 14 and grabbed 12 boards.

Chase Budinger also added 12 off the bench for Minnesota.

The Wolves did have J.J Barea back, but Nikola Pekovic was still out. The Star Tribune reports he is getting closer to a return.
