In desperate need of a win, the Cavaliers faced a sight for sore eyes in the Minnesota Timberwolves. Cleveland used 48 percent shooting, including 56 percent shooting from three point range, and key contributions from their bench to grab a key road victory and calm some of the nervousness surrounding the team's early struggles.

You're hot and they're cold: The Cavaliers made themselves at home early on in the Target Center when they came out firing a scorching 9-for-15 in the first 8 minutes. Meanwhile, the T-Wolves shot just 3-for-13 in that stretch. The only person who had a good first quarter for Minnesota was rookie PG Johnny Flynn, who blew by Mo Williams on a couple of occasions for 7 first quarter points. Other than that, the Wolves shot just 7-of-21 in the first, while the Cavs raced out to a 52 percent mark (12-of-23). LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 11 first quarter points as the Cavaliers took a seven point lead.
