With the victory over the Trail Blazers, the Minnesota Timberwolves have finally put their name in the playoff hunt. Houston lost to Toronto which opened the door for Minnesota and they obliged with a 106-94 victory. An unsung hero of the game was Wes Johnson. He scored 19 points and now the Wolves are 8-2 when he scores 9 or more points. Kevin Love was his spectacular self with 29 points, 16 rebounds and 3 assists. This is Minnesota’s 5th straight home victory and they are now 2 games over .500, something they haven’t been able to say this late in the season since 2005. If you aren’t on the Wolves bandwagon yet, it may be about time to jump on before it is too full.
