Timberwolves 112, Jazz 97

Kevin Love flirted with a triple-double with 19 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists as Minnesota routed the Jazz for the second time in four nights.

On Saturday, the Timberwolves blew out Utah by 26 points.

In the rematch, Utah's Gordon Hayward finished with a game-high 27 points with five rebounds and five assists in his first game in two weeks after being sidelined with a left hip flexor.

Utah (14-29), however, only had two other players in double figures.

Corey Brewer added 19 for the Wolves who also got 11 points and 13 assists from Ricky Rubio.
