The Minnesota Timberwolves finished February with a 5-6 record, but their star forward was anything but lackluster. 

All-Star starter Kevin Love wrapped a historic month of scoring by leading the NBA with 34 points per game, just edging Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, who finished with 33.4 points per game in February. 


Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Martin to return

The Timberwolves (28-29) have won four of their last five games and will get a much-needed boost when center Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and shooting guard Kevin Martin (thumb) return to the lineup on Saturday at the Sacramento Kings. 


The Timberwolves are currently 10th in the Western Conference and are 5.5 games back from Phoenix for the eighth and final playoff spot. They have 25 games remaining.

The Timberwolves would be the sixth seed in the inferior Eastern Conference.
