Timberwolves Vs. Rockets Score Update: Minnesota Down At Half In Kevin McHale's Return

Kevin McHale returns to the Target Center in Minnesota for the first time since being fired by the Timberwolves in June 2009 following 15 years with the franchise. He has to feel pretty good about his Rockets leading after the first half 54-47.

Kevin Love dominated the first half for the T-Wolves with 19 points on 7-for-12 shooting and seven rebounds. Rookie Ricky Rubio, despite 2-for-7 shooting, dished out seven assists.

Kevin Martin leads all scorers with 21 points on the Love like 7-for-12 shooting. Kyle Lowrie is well on his way to a triple-double with nine points, seven assists and six rebounds through the first 24 minutes. Samuel Dalembert has grabbed nine rebounds for the Rockets.
