After four-month wait, Wolves defeat San Antonio
Getting contributions from just about everywhere the Wolves put a 110-91 pasting on the Spurs.
Kevin Love and Gorgui Dieng each had double-doubles. From Love, thatís not news. But from Dieng itís an emerging story that added a chapter Tuesday, when he got the better of Spurs star Tim Duncan (10 points on 4-for-11 shooting).
ďI dreamed of playing against those guys,Ē said Dieng, who didnít shoot the ball terribly well but scored 12 points and got 15 rebounds. ďTim Duncan, heís going to be a Hall of Famer. A great player. When I got the chance I didnít want to let it go. Because you never know when youíll get a chance again.Ē
Ricky Rubio scored 23 points on 10-for-17 shooting with seven assists. And he brought the whole menu, hitting pullup jumpers, attacking the rim, scoring on a lefthanded hook as he crossed the lane. He even attempted a floater.
