Nothing snaps a slump like sweeping a back-to-back.

The Wolves pulled that off Wednesday night at Target Center, beating Philadelphia 106-99 after dispatching of Detroit last night at The Palace at Auburn Hills.

With the Wolves trailing by three heading to the fourth-quarter after trailing by as many as 19 earlier in the game, Minnesota got production from an unlikely source, as Robbie Hummel scored 10 points in the final frame to ice the game.

Minnesota got a nearly identical night to Tuesday's performance from Kevin Love, as he led the Wolves with 26 points and 15 rebounds, just one board from matching his exact statline last night.

Ricky Rubio was also in top form for the Wolves, putting in a season-high 21 points while also dishing out seven assists.

Impressive Philadelphia rookie guard Michael Carter-Williams was inactive for the fourth straight game as he continues to recover from a knee infection, but fill-in starter Tony Wroten had 20 points in his stead.

Spencer Hawes also dropped 20 for Philly, but 26 turnovers did in the Sixers.

Back at .500 on the season, Minnesota heads on the road to face the Spurs, a 7:30 p.m. tap from San Antonio Friday.
