Pistons-Timberwolves Preview 1-18-12

(AP) — Paced by star Kevin Love and a blossoming group of guards, the Minnesota Timberwolves are making strides in a positive direction even though their record might tell a different story.

The Timberwolves look for a second straight victory when they host the struggling Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

Minnesota (5-8) might not be ready to seriously contend for a playoff spot in the perennially tough Western Conference, but things appear to be looking up for a franchise that won a combined 32 games over the previous two seasons.

Last season it took the Timberwolves 23 games to record six victories but with the lowly Pistons (3-11) in town, Minnesota has a very good chance to reach that mark much sooner. Love had 33 points with 11 rebounds, Luke Ridnour added 25 with nine assists and rookie Ricky Rubio chipped in nine, eight assists and eight rebounds as Minnesota beat Sacramento 99-86 for its second victory in three games Tuesday.
