Houston: Kevin Love scored 33 points, including eight straight during a key fourth-quarter stretch, and Nikola Pekovic added a career-high 30 to give the Minnesota Timberwolves a 111-98 win over the Houston Rockets on Friday.
Love's fourth 30-point outing in the last five games helped the Timberwolves improve to 3-1 against Houston this season.
A big run by Houston at the beginning of the fourth cut Minnesota's lead from 14 to one before Love took over. He scored eight points in a row, fueled by a pair of 3-pointers, to push Minnesota's lead to 103-94 with 3 minutes left. The Rockets never threatened again.
Love also had 17 rebounds for his 27th double-double of the season, the most in the NBA.
