Love's buzzer beater lifts Timberwolves over Clippers

Kevin Love knocked down a three-pointer as 98 comeback victory over the Clippers on Friday night.

Minnesota, which has won three straight and four of five, trailed 98-94 with under a minute remaining, but Ricky Rubio scored the next four points, hitting a free throw before knocking down a game-tying three with 20 seconds left.

After Chauncey Billups missed a layup, which was contested by Rubio, Love grabbed the rebound and, out of a timeout, received an inbounds pass at the top of the key and drained the open trey as the buzzer sounded.

Love finished with 17 points and 14 boards while Darko Milicic had 22 points and seven rebounds.

The Clippers, who were without All-Star Chris Paul for the fourth consecutive game, have dropped two of their last three. Mo Williams scored a game-high 25 points before being ejected in the fourth quarter.
