The Timberwolves bounced back at Denver with a 101-97 Thursday night after losing at Utah Wednesday night.  J.J. Barea scored 12 of his 17 points in the 4th quarter and Alexey Shved added 17 points for Minnesota.  Luke Ridnour and Andrei Kirilenko each scored 14 points for Minnesota.

Kevin Love had 12 points and 17 rebounds but left the game with a sprained finger on his right hand.  It's unclear how long Love will be out, and if he will be out.  The Wolves will host Portland Saturday night at 7pm.  Ricky Rubio missed last night's game with back spasms but could return against Portland.
