Love's triple-double leads T-Wolves over Grizzlies
Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Love recorded his second triple- double in four games, posting 24 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 102-88 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Love, who also had a triple-double against the Lakers last Friday, went 9- of-15 from the field for the Timberwolves, who snapped a two-game skid. Kevin Martin and Ricky Rubio tallied 21 and 14 points, respectively.
Minnesota center Ronny Turiaf had 11 points, seven boards and three blocks in his return to the lineup. It was his first game since Feb. 19 due to a bone bruise in his right knee.
Marc Gasol ended with 18 points and seven rebounds for the Grizzlies, who went 2-3 on a five-game road trip. Courtney Lee and Ed Davis donated 14 and 10 points, respectively.
The loss dropped Memphis into a tie with idle Dallas for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
