Timberwolves blow out Charlotte Bobcats

MINNEAPOLIS — If you can’t win by a little, win by a lot.

Or so it goes for a Minnesota Timberwolves team that can’t seem to win a close game, but leads the NBA in 20-point blowout victories after Friday’s 119-92 rout of the Charlotte Bobcats at Target Center.

The Wolves are 0-10 this season in games decided by four points or fewer and Wednesday’s one-point loss to Phoenix caused all kinds of consternation at Target Center for nearly two days after star Kevin Love criticized two teammates for sulking at the end of the bench during two timeouts late in that game.

They also lead the league in 20-plus point victories now with eight, one more than San Antonio’s seven.

“That makes me feel better,” Wolves coach Rick Adelman said. “I like that question better than the other one.”

The Timberwolves play at San Antonio on Sunday.
