Love takes control, leads T'Wolves over Warriors

Kevin Love had 36 points and 17 rebounds on 93 win over the Warriors.

Luke Ridnour added 11 points and Anthony Tolliver had 10 for Minnesota, which halted a three-game slide. Still, the Timberwolves are just 2-4 since starting point guard Ricky Rubio was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Golden State retired Hall of Famer Chris Mullin's No. 17 jersey at halftime and fittingly overcame a 17-point deficit during the contest before eventually dropping its fourth straight game.

David Lee had 25 points and nine rebounds while recently-acquired Richard Jefferson scored 19 for the Warriors, who played their fifth straight game without shooting guard Stephen Curry.
