Wall’s Double-Double Outshines Love In Wizards Win
WASHINGTON (AP) – John Wall scored 18 points and had 11 rebounds to lead the Washington Wizards to a 103-96 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday night.
Kevin Love scored 20 points and had 21 rebounds for Minnesota, the third straight game with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds for the All-Star forward and his 11th of the season.
Andray Blatche scored 20 points and had seven rebounds for Washington, which snapped a seven-game losing streak. The Wizards have won their last seven games at home against the Timberwolves.
It was Love’s 50th double-double in a row, one game shy of tying the mark set by Moses Malone in 1978-79. Love leads the NBA with 59 this season.
