He played with it Friday taped after suffering a cut across the knuckle in Tuesday’s victory at Utah. Martin made 10 of 17 field-goal attempts against the Warriors and scored 26 points, including the winning shot with 8.4 seconds left. Then he went out and scored 30 points Saturday, including 20 in the first half.

“Maybe I should hurt it more,” he said with a smile. “Once you get in the game, you don’t even think about it. It might limit you a little bit, but you find ways around it. That’s what I did.”

Masked man

Reserve guard Alexey Shved played again Saturday with a plastic protective mask that he will wear for the next three weeks on his broken nose.

He played the final 27 seconds of Friday’s second quarter without it when he was suddenly put back in the game for Rubio.

“He just told me, ‘Go,’ ” Shved said, referring to Adelman. “I didn’t have time to put my mask on.”

Worth talking about

Adelman went onto the court after Golden State’s Harrison Barnes missed a potential game-winning shot at the buzzer Friday and engaged his two Kevins in conversation.

Just what was it about? Answer: The two-man game between Martin and Love that the Wolves have tried often this season but that never really clicked until it worked for Martin’s winner.

“It’s something we’ve talked about,” Adelman said. “When they play together, I think they can do things together. Kevin Martin, he’s someone who can really benefit from him [Love] being on the floor because they don’t leave Kevin [Love]. In fact, sometimes we run things and two guys go to him. I think Kevin Martin is the one guy, with his quickness, who can get shots.

“I was just talking to them that it took us 40-something games to make the play we’ve been talking about for 40 games.”


• Rookies Robbie Hummel and Shabazz Muhammad were the team’s two inactive players Saturday.

• Love leads the league in 20-point, 10-rebound games after reaching his 27th Friday with a 26-point, 14-rebound, eight-assist night.
