OAKLAND, Calif., March 20 (UPI) -- Kevin Love dominated at both ends of the court Monday, scoring 36 points and grabbing 17 rebounds in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 97-93 win over Golden State.

Love went 13-of-23 from the field, hitting a trio of 3-pointers, while Luke Ridnour added 11 points and 10 assists as the T-Wolves broke a three-game losing streak.

Anthony Tolliver added 10 points for Minnesota, which improved to 2-4 since losing starting point guard Ricky Rubio to a season-ending knee injury.

David Lee led the Warriors with 25 points and nine rebounds.

Richard Jefferson, acquired from San Antonio in a trade Thursday, scored 19 for Golden State, which retired Hall of Famer Chris Mullin's No. 17 jersey at halftime.
