Jerry Zgoda's NBA short takes

Curry joins an impressive party

Three days after he left Target Center last week, Golden State's Steph Curry went to Madison Square Garden and became the first player in NBA history to make 10 three-pointers and score 50 points in a game with his 54 points and 11 threes in a loss to the Knicks.

It was the fifth-highest scoring game by a NBA player since the Garden opened on its current site in 1968, and it put him in some pretty good company:

Pts Player Team Date

61 Kobe Bryant L.A. Lakers Feb. 2, 2009

60 Bernard King New York Dec. 25, 1984

55 Michael Jordan Chicago March 28, 1995

55 Bernard King New York Feb. 16, 1985

54 Steph Curry Golden St. Feb. 27, 2013

Amundson home in Chicago

Chicago on Saturday signed former Wolves forward Lou Amundson to a 10-day contract to give the Bulls another energy guy who probably still will be one of the last ones off the bench.

He was in uniform that night against Brooklyn and wore uniform No. 17, a picture of which he tweeted the day before with the caption, "#23 wasn't available."

The Wolves waived Amundson on Feb. 8 so they could re-sign Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale for the rest of the season.

From almost fired to ... admired

Once the NBA's overwhelming favorite as the next coach to get fired, former Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman returns to Target Center on Wednesday with a Washington team that started the season 3-23 but is 13-10 since John Wall came back from a season-starting injury.

It's also a homecoming of sorts for Martell Webster, who played two injury-filled seasons with the Wolves before signing as a free agent with the Wizards last summer. He is starting as small forward for a rejuvenated team that has won seven of its past 11 games.
