AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) – Kevin Love had 20 points and 20 rebounds, and Minnesota’s reserves also provided a big boost in the Timberwolves’ 116-105 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.
Anthony Randolph scored 19 points, one of three backups in double figures for Minnesota. Lazar Hayward scored a career-high 16 points and Anthony Tolliver added 13.
Love’s double-double was his 48th in a row, the longest streak since Moses Malone’s 51 straight games in 1978-79. Love appeared to hurt his right thigh while scoring on a fast break with 5:54 remaining, but he was able to play on.
The Timberwolves have won three of their last five road games after a 2-23 start away from home.
Austin Daye scored a career-high 22 points for the Pistons.
