DALLAS (AP) — Kevin Martin had 27 points with some key baskets late, Kevin Love had his usual double-double and the Minnesota Timberwolves snapped a three-game losing streak with a 112-106 victory at Dallas on Saturday night.
Martin made two free throws with just under 6 minutes left to put Minnesota up 94-90. Ricky Rubio then had a steal that led to a long fast-break jumper by Martin, who later beat the shot clock with a jumper and then added a 3-pointer. That stretched the lead to 103-92, matching its largest, with 3:12 left.
Love finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds. All five starters scored in double figures for Minnesota, which had lost five of its previous six games.
Monta Ellis scored 26 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 23 for Dallas.
