Continued: Wolves' Adelman finds joy in hitting milestone

“It has been a really tough season so we have to celebrate these special moments even a little bit more,” Taylor said. “I know it’s really meaningful to the players and the other coaches as well as Rick. It’s meaningful to me to see the satisfaction on his face and his family’s face because of all the things they’ve been through this year.

“I think we’re close, but it’s easy to stick by them because they’re wonderful people. It’s not a chore at all to support them.”

So long ago

Adelman’s first NBA victory came in February 1989, so long ago that not only were Ricky Rubio and Derrick Williams not born yet, but the Wolves still were nine months away from playing the franchise’s first game.

“A long time,” Taylor said. “Why is it so important? Because it has taken a long time and he has put in a lot of work, a lot of effort and a lot of knowledge to help a lot of players.”

Etc.

• Adelman gave the team both Sunday and Monday off after Saturday’s victory. The Wolves will fly to San Francisco on Monday afternoon before playing at Golden State on Tuesday night.

• Rubio injured his left shoulder in a third-quarter collision with Pistons guard Brandon Knight and had it wrapped with an ice bag after Saturday’s game. Asked if the shoulder will be all right, he said, “I hope so.”

• President of basketball operations David Kahn consoled rookie guard Alexey Shved at his locker after Saturday’s game, when he played only 3 minutes, 41 seconds. That’s the least he has played when he has played this year. He played eight minutes on Friday against Toronto and clearly is struggling down the stretch in his first 82-game NBA season.
