Getting serious

Adelman used Saturday’s game — the fourth of seven in this preseason — to establish a 10-man rotation after playing 12 or 13 players in the first three games.

That rotation included a second unit of Derrick Williams, Ronny Turiaf, Barea, Dante Cunningham and Jeffers for the first three quarters. Rookie Shabazz Muhammad and camp invitee A.J. Price played in the fourth quarter after the starters sat down for the night.

Etc.

• NBA referees met with Wolves players and coaches before Wednesday’s game in Toronto to discuss this season’s officiating points of emphasis, which, among others, include traveling, illegal screens and delay-of-game penalties following made baskets. On Saturday, the Raptors got three technical fouls after a warning for catching the ball after they made a basket.

• Raptors coach Dwane Casey on lean Wolves forward Kevin Love, who offensively played his way toward the regular season with a 28-point, 11-rebound night in 28 minutes: “He looks great. He looks like a new person.”

• Adelman criticized his team for losing its first two games at Target Center. “We have to win at home,” said starting forward Corey Brewer, signed away from Denver last summer. “I played on a team that last year went 38-3 at home, got the third [playoff] seed. I told the guys, you have to win at home.”
