MINNEAPOLIS – Kevin Love grabbed a franchise-record 31 rebounds and scored 31 points, the NBA’s first 30-30 game in 28 years, and the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied from a 21-point, third-quarter deficit to stun the New York Knicks 112-103 on Friday night.

Love grabbed 15 boards in the third quarter alone to will the Timberwolves to victory. Moses Malone was the last player to do it with 32 points and 38 rebounds for Houston against Seattle in 1982.

Michael Beasley had 35 points and six rebounds for the Wolves, who won their second game in a row in thrilling fashion.

Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points, but only seven in the second half for the Knicks, who lost their fourth consecutive game and had no answer for Love’s dominance in the second half.

 

BOBCATS 93, WIZARDS 85: Gerald Wallace had 25 points and 14 rebounds and managed to show nearly as much flash as No. 1 overall pick John Wall, leading Charlotte to a 93-85 victory in Washington.

The Bobcats overcame 24 turnovers with a 48-30 rebounding advantage and went ahead for good with a 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter. Charlotte outscored Washington 17-7 over the final 6:10.

 

JAZZ 90, HAWKS 86: Paul Millsap hit a corner jumper with 1:20 to play and Utah came back from a double-digit, second-half deficit for the fourth consecutive game to win in Atlanta.

Deron Williams led the Jazz with 24 points and 10 assists.

The Hawks have lost four straight, including three at home, after winning their first six.

 

SUNS 103, KINGS 89: Steve Nash had 28 points, 14 assists and even seven rebounds on the day of the birth of his son, and Phoenix beat host Sacramento for the 10th straight time.

The 36-year-old two-time league MVP, whose wife Alejandra gave birth to Matteo Joel Nash early Friday, made 11 of his first 12 shots and finished 13 for 18 to lead Phoenix to its third win in four games and send the Kings to their fourth loss in a row.

Hakim Warrick added 18 points for the Suns, most of them on feeds from Nash.

 

ROCKETS 102, PACERS 99: Brad Miller and Luis Scola made up for the absence of Yao Ming, and visiting Houston held off Indiana.

Miller had 23 points and eight rebounds, while Scola added 16 points in the Rockets’ first game since losing Yao for at least a week with a sprained ankle.

James Posey led Indiana with 19 points, with Roy Hibbert scoring 18 and Danny Granger 17.

 

MAVERICKS 99, 76ERS 90: Reserve J.J. Barea scored a season-high 19 points, Dirk Nowitzki added 16 despite a sprained ankle, and host Dallas beat Philadelphia for a third straight win.

Shawn Marion had 16 points and Jason Terry 13 to help the Mavericks to their fifth victory in six games.

 

RAPTORS 110, MAGIC 106: Sonny Weems made a 3-pointer with 7.1 seconds left and Toronto hit four free throws from there to snap a six-game losing streak by winning in Orlando.

Andrea Bargnani led the Raptors with 27 points, but it was Weems and DeMar DeRozan who made the key plays that ended Toronto’s skid.

 

NOTES: The NBA’s board of governors unanimously approved the sale of the Golden State Warriors from Chris Cohan to a group led by Joe Lacob and movie producer Peter Guber at a cost of $450 million.
