Nuggets Vs. Timberwolves Final: Love, Minnesota Cruise To 117-100 Win

It was relatively easy sailing for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday in a 117-100 victory over the visiting Denver Nuggets. All-Star forward Kevin Love turned in yet another memorable statistical performance with 30 points, 21 rebounds and four assists, as his team was barely forced to break a sweat in the second half after taking a 21-point advantage into the break.

The T-Wolves connected on 12 of 35 three-point attempts (34.3%) during the game, and sported nearly a 3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio as a team. Point guard Luke Ridnour, who was a perfect 7-for-7 shooting in the first half, finished the day with 25 points and six assists.

Newly-acquired JaVale McGee added 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Nuggets off the bench, but Denver was unable to find its range from the perimeter and couldn't find a way to stop Love. The T-Wolves moved to 24-26 with the win, and are now a mere two games away from reaching a .500 record.
