Towns, Rubio lead Wolves over Wizards, 119-104 - Mar 14, 2017

Karl-Anthony
Towns
Karl-Anthony Towns (7'0''-F/C-95, college: Kentucky) ran back onto the court after the final horn, almost tackling Ricky Rubio (6'4''-G-90) as he did a postgame interview with the local Fox Sports affiliate. Towns put up another enormous stat line, scoring 17 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter as the Minnesota Timberwolves kept rolling against another heavyweight opponent. But he said he played second fiddle on this night. Rubio scored 22 points and broke his own franchise record with 19 assists, and the Timberwolves beat the Washington Wizards 119-104 on Monday night. 'He almost single-handedly won us this game tonight,' Towns said of his point guard. 'So, we just picked up with any pieces he could give us.' Nemanja Bjelica (6'10''-SF-88) added 16 points and 10 boards off the bench for the Timberwolves, who entered the game 3 1/2 games behind Denver for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Minnesota shot 52 percent and Rubio topped 20 points in back-to-back games for the second time in his six-year career. John Wall (6'4''-PG-90, college: Kentucky) scored 27 points for the Wizards, who fell 2 1/2 games back of Cleveland for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Bradley Beal (6'5''-SG-93, college: Florida) added 20 points, but Washington lost for the first time in six games. They finished a tough, five-game road trip at 4-1. 'We were ready to go 5-0. No excuses,' Wall said. 'We just didn't come out and play great defensively.' Rubio has been playing the best basketball of his life over the last two months, and it has culminated with a brilliant week against some of the best point guards in the league. He outplayed Chris Paul and Stephen Curry in home victories over the Clippers and Warriors last week, then put up 22 points and eight assists in a loss at Milwaukee on Saturday. But he's never been better than in the first quarter against Wall and the Wizards. Threading bounce passes through windows that weren't even open, Rubio doled out 10 assists in the first quarter. Bjelica was a primary beneficiary, catching a 40-foot outlet pass for a layup and a bounce pass that squeezed between two defenders and onto his fingertips for a layup that put the Wolves up 35-14. 'Some nights you see things a little different and it gets easier,' Rubio said. 'Tonight in the first quarter I really saw different things out there. I was trying to set the tempo from the beginning and being aggressive.' The Wizards were undaunted, having come back from a 21-point deficit in the first half to beat Portland on Saturday night. Wall got off to a slow start shooting, but he attacked the rim relentlessly to help Washington climb back into the game. Wall made 14 of 19 free throws, Beal converted a four-point play and Wall's two freebies made it 102-97 with 4:21 to play. But Towns hit a 3 and two free throws, and the Wizards couldn't find the energy to finish another furious comeback in their fifth game in seven nights. 'I don't make excuses, but I'm not going to sit here and act like we're not tired,' Beal said. 'It is what it is. We take this loss like a man and we move on from it.'

John Wall and Wizards turn back Hawks, 115-99, move on to Eastern Conference semifinals - 21 hours ago
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (6'4''-PG-90, college: Kentucky) ended his night early, walking off the court with the clock stopped late in the final quarter. He deserved the proper ovation for a road villain - hard handshakes from teammates and scattered boos from a salty crowd - after closing out the Atlanta Hawks. As the Wizards defeated Atlanta, 115-99, in Game 6 of a first-round playoff series and advance to meet the top-seeded Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals,...   [read more]

Celtics Destroy Bulls 105-83, Overcome 2-0 Deficit to Win Series - 22 hours ago
The Boston Celtics completed their first-round playoff comeback against the Chicago Bulls on Friday with a commanding 105-83 victory in Game 6 at the United Center to win the series, 4-2. Boston dropped the first two games of the series but won four straight after Rajon Rondo (6'1''-PG-86, college: Kentucky) suffered a fractured right thumb. All five Celtics starters scored in double figures, and Avery Bradley (6'2''-PG-90, college: Texas) led the balanced effort with 23 points. Jimmy But...   [read more]

Erik Spoelstra Has Interest In Running Heat Front Office Someday - 22 hours ago
Erik Spoelstra has interest in running the Miami Heat when Pat Riley retires. Spoelstra was asked about it during an interview with Adrian Wojnarowski. "Short answer would be, I'm a Pat Riley disciple, and, like I've said, he's always pushed me and nurtured me for the next steps," Spoelstra said during the interview recorded in Southern California. "So, yes, that I'd love to have that opportunity years down the line from the Arison family, because I believe in them so much as human beings.    [read more]
