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.
The loss dropped Memphis into a tie with idle Dallas for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
