Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Nikola Pekovic netted a game-high 29 points and was a perfect 11-of-11 from the charity stripe as Minnesota ended a 11- game losing skid versus Boston by downing the Celtics, 110-100, on Monday at Target Center.
Pekovic was listed as questionable prior to the contest after missing Saturday's game versus Memphis with a sprained ankle, but returned to give Minnesota a much-needed spark. He also grabbed five rebounds for the Timberwolves, who have won two of three.
Dante Cunningham poured in 19 points and Andrei Kirilenko had 17 to go along with nine boards and five assists in the victory.
Avery Bradley scored 19 points and Jason Terry and Terrence Williams each had 14 for the Celtics, who have dropped two straight and seven of their last nine.
