Wolves burn up Pistons, 105-82


The Timberwolves were firing on all Pistons in Tuesday night's 105-82 win in Detroit.

J.J. Barea led the charge with 21 points, including 5-of-7 from three.

The Timberwolves hit a team record 14 three-pointers -- not bad for a team that is statistically the worst three-point shooting team in the NBA.

Nikola Pekovic finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds while Ricky Rubio totaled 14 points and 9 assists.

The Wolves return home to play the Lakers on Wednesday, followed by games Friday and Saturday against Oklahoma City and Memphis.
