MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kevin Love had 24 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to their second win in a row, 106-96 Monday night over the San Antonio Spurs, who lost star guard Manu Ginobili to a broken left hand.

Luke Ridnour had 19 points and nine assists and Wes Johnson broke out of a shooting slump with 14 points and 6-for-6 shooting for the Timberwolves, who snapped an 18-game losing streak with a win over Dallas on Sunday.

Ginobili injured his shooting hand in the second quarter. The two-time All-Star will be examined in San Antonio on Tuesday.

Tim Duncan had 16 points and five assists and Richard Jefferson scored 16 points for the Spurs.
