SACRAMENTO, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Kevin Love scored 23 points and grabbed two dozen rebounds Tuesday in Minnesota's 97-89 road win over Sacramento.

Love's efforts on the boards gave the Timberwolves a 51-36 edge in rebounding and helped end a five-game losing streak.

Luke Ridnour added 18 points for Minnesota and Nikola Pekovic scored 16 and collected eight rebounds.

Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins both scored 20 for the Kings. Sacramento lost its fourth consecutive game.

Cousins hit two free throws with 1:20 left in the game to trim Minnesota's lead to 91-89; however, Pekovic hit a layup on the Timberwolves' next possession and Andrei Kirilenko came up with a key block on Cousins' hook shot with 59 seconds to play.
