Love scores 31 as Timberwolves beat Bulls 95-86

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Kevin Love scored 31 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves over the Chicago Bulls 95-86 Monday night.

Ronny Turiaf added 14 points off the bench for the Timberwolves, who snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Bulls and won for the fourth time in five games overall.

Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who played without ailing center Joakim Noah (illness) and guard Kirk Hinrich (hamstring). D.J. Augustin added 19 points.

The Timberwolves were also missing their starting center. Nikola Pekovic exited with a sore right Achilles tendon midway through the first quarter. He had one point and one rebound.

The Bulls pulled within five with 1:29 left on Augustin's 3-pointer but got no closer. Love answered with a layup with 1:10 remaining, and Corey Brewer's dunk gave the Timberwolves an 88-79 lead with 57.4 seconds left.
