But this time, the Wolves held on.

“That was a huge game for us and our confidence, and we did it,” Rubio said.

The Wolves survived a scare when Rubio ended up writhing on the court in pain after he took a charge from Iguodala,

Backup guard Alexey Shved also played on after getting injured at Utah. He wore a protective plastic mask over a broken nose suffered that game but played 15 minutes with it anyway. He said before the game he’ll wear the mask for the next three weeks.
