Love's 31 Points, 31 Boards Lead Timberwolves Past Knicks

(Sports Network) – Kevin Love accomplished something no player has done since 1982, as the third-year forward recorded 31 points and 31 rebounds to help the Minnesota Timberwolves erase a double-digit halftime deficit en route to a 112-103 triumph over the New York Knicks.

Love’s 30-30 night was the first in the NBA since Moses Malone pulled the trick 28 years ago, and his 31 rebounds set a franchise record for the Timberwolves, who were down as many as 21 before holding the Knicks to 27.9- percent shooting in the second half.

Michael Beasley, fresh off a career-high 42-point game, added 35 points in Minnesota’s second straight win following a six-game skid.

Danilo Gallinari and Raymond Felton paced five Knicks in double figures with 25 and 22 points, respectively, but it wasn’t enough to snap the club’s three- game slide.
