• The fifth NBA player this season to score 50 or more points. The others: Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Terrence Ross and Kevin Durant (twice).

• The first player since Baron Davis in 2003 to record four steals in four consecutive games. Davis did so in seven straight.

• The first Wolves player to score 26 points in a first half since Michael Beasley scored 27 on his way to a 42-point night at Sacramento on Nov. 10, 2010.
