Chris Kaman scored 20 points and the New Orleans Hornets snapped a four-game losing streak with a 95-89 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, who played their first game on Saturday night since losing star point guard Ricky Rubio for the season to a knee injury.

Jarrett Jack had 17 points and seven assists for the Hornets, who won for the 10th time all season thanks to 28 assists on 39 buckets.

Kevin Love had 31 points and 16 rebounds after missing the previous game with back spasms, but the Timberwolves couldn't shake the disappointment of losing Rubio in time to beat the Hornets.

The Hornets used an 11-0 run early in the fourth quarter to hold on and pick up their fifth road win of the season.
