J.J. Barea came off the Wolves bench on Tuesday and hit 8-of-11 shots and five 3-pointers on his way to 21 points, two rebounds and one assist in just 21 minutes.

The Wolves hit 53 percent of their shots in the rout and nailed a season-high 14 3-pointers on 54 percent shooting tonight, as Barea was hot and aggressive. Alexey Shved played the same number off minutes off the bench, but had just five points, seven dimes and one 3-pointer. Barea's always a bit hit or miss as long as he's coming off the bench, but is worth a look in most leagues with the Wolves playing four times per week the rest of the way. Just know that he may not have another line like this the rest of the season.
