Kevin Love had another monster game, this time scoring 42 points and pulling down 16 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 104-91 victory over the Indiana Pacers at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota Wednesday night.

Love went 14-of-22 from the field, five-of-10 from beyond the arc and nine-of-10 from the free throw line to score his 42 points.

He was nearly matched by another elite player, Pacers’ superstar swingman Paul George. George had 35 points on 11-of-22 shooting from the field, three-of-six shooting from three and a perfect 10-of-10 night from the charity stripe to go with 11 rebounds, three steals and two assists to lead the Pacers. George, however, had just two points in the fourth quarter.

The Timberwolves took control early in the game, taking a 30-18 lead after one quarter of play. The Pacers got back into the game and had the lead down to five early in the fourth quarter, but the Timberwolves answered with a 12-2 run to put the game away.

J.J. Barea, who is at the center of trade rumors, and Corey Brewer each added 12 for the Timberwolves.

The Timberwolves are now 26-28 while the Pacers are 41-13 and now just a game up (and two games overall) in the loss column on the Miami Heat for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.
