Kevin Love Scores 28 In Lopsided Win

New, 1 comment

Kevin Love scored 20 of his 28 points in the first half and the Minnesota Timberwolves built a huge lead on the way to an easy 129-95 win over Cleveland.

Love also grabbed 19 rebounds and Wesley Johnson scored 20 points for the Timberwolves, who snapped a six-game losing streak with their first win since Nov. 17.

Minnesota set a franchise record with 18 three-pointers in the game, including five from Love.

Cleveland, playing for the first time since being thumped by LeBron James and Miami on Thursday, got 18 points from Ramon Sessions and 17 from Antawn Jamison — both off the bench.

The Cavaliers lost their third straight and for the seventh time in nine games.
