Continued: Wolves' Martin misses game with sore knee

“I thought he was good,” Adelman said. “He tried. He’s a rookie. You can’t guard anybody inside without getting a foul. It’s hard for me to understand all the fouls he got when you saw all the banging that was going on with Kevin [Love] and Pek [Nikola Pekovic]. He was active. He’s going to be active and he can make a difference.”

An Indiana thing

When Boston first-year coach Brad Stevens praised the Wolves on Monday, he mentioned Love, of course, and also the team’s strong bench play and rookie reserve Hummel’s emergence.

Huh? Must be an Indiana thing: Stevens grew up in Indianapolis and coached Butler University, while Hummel was a northern-Indiana prep star who played at Purdue.

“That’s kind of ridiculous, but he’s a good guy,” Hummel said. “I guess it is one of those [Indiana] things. I’m happy he’s doing so well, for sure.”

Etc.

• Stevens never recruited Hummel when he was at Butler when it became obvious he was headed elsewhere, namely to Purdue.

“But I have so much respect for him,” Stevens said. “I’m obviously really familiar with him and coming back from what he came back from with two [torn] ACLs is a remarkable story.”

•  Adelman on Brewer’s 12-rebound game in Memphis: “He’s set the bar now. We expect that out of him every night now.” Brewer had one rebound Monday.
