MINNEAPOLIS- The Minnesota Timberwolves took an early lead but otherwise never threatened the Chicago Bulls in a 104-97 loss at Target Center Sunday. The Wolves are now 24-44 on the season.

Derrick Williams bounced back from a bad first quarter to score 28 points on 11-18 shooting. Nikola Pekovic and Ricky Rubio each had 15 points in the loss.

Jimmy Butler led the Bulls with 20 points, as Chicago won without Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah among others.
