MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kevin Love scored 25 points and grabbed 18 rebounds and Luke Ridnour added 22 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves over the Houston Rockets 100-91 on Saturday night.

Minnesota (12-12) won for the fifth time in seven games.

Kyle Lowry had 24 points and 11 assists for Houston and Luis Scola also had 24 points, but Kevin Martin scored a season-low two points on 1-for-10 shooting.

It was only the second time this season Martin, who entered the game averaging 20.7 points, didn’t score in double figures. It was his fewest point total since March of 2007, when he scored one point for Sacramento against Phoenix.

Ricky Rubio had 13 points and 11 assists for Minnesota.
