Minnesota allowed six Cleveland players in double figures and shot less than 40-percent opposed to Cleveland's 46-percent. Veteran Antawn Jamison was the Cavs' leading scorer with 22 points and added six rebounds to help the Cavs in their rebounding advantage.
The Minnesota Timberwolves were led by Kevin Love, who finished with 29 points and 14 rebounds despite a slow first half. Darko Milicic had 11 points at the half, but didn't score in the second.
Minnesota has now lost two straight and will be back at it again on Sunday against the Wizards.
