Minneapolis:

Kevin Love had 33 points and 11 rebounds and Luke Ridnour added 25 points and nine assists to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 99-86 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.

Wayne Ellington scored 15 points off the bench for Minnesota, a significant contribution for a backcourt that was missing J.J. Barea for the third straight game with a sprained left ankle.

Tyreke Evans had nine points, 10 assists and eight rebounds but shot just 3 of 11 from the field as the Kings lost for the fifth time in six games.

Jason Thompson and Marcus Thornton led the Kings with 12 points each. DeMarcus Cousins was hampered by foul trouble yet again, limited to 10 points in 25 minutes.
