Timberwolves Vs. Pistons Final Score: Minnesota Snaps 11-Game Losing Streak, 91-80

The Minnesota Timberwolves traveled into Detroit on a day's rest to take on the Pistons Thursday night, who were playing their third game in as many days less than 24 hours after getting drubbed in Atlanta by 32 points. Losers of 11 straight, the Timberwolves caught the right team at the right time and snapped their skid 91-80.

Jose Barea recorded a double-double with 13 points and 12 assists. Nikola Pekovic scored a game-high 23 and grabbed nine rebounds. Three other Timberwolves were in double figures in the relatively easy win.

The Pistons battled back in the fourth quarter after falling behind 23 with less than eight minutes remaining, but Minnesota had time on their side and knocked down six of their eight free throws to seal the game and pick up their first win in the month of April.

Minnesota does not play again until Sunday when they host the Golden State Warriors.
