NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Love had 34 points, 15 rebounds and five assists, Kevin Martin scored 30 points and the Minnesota Timberwolves improved to 3-0 for the first time in 12 years with a 109-100 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday night.

Minnesota took a huge lead after a 40-point first quarter, then pulled away after the Knicks trimmed it to two in the closing minutes to move halfway to matching the 2001-02 team that set the franchise record by winning its first six.

The Timberwolves, averaging a whopping 37.3 points in the first quarter, are healthy again after an injury-wrecked 2012-13 and showing the early promise of a team that can contend for its first playoff berth since 2004.

Carmelo Anthony had 22 points and 17 rebounds for the Knicks, who have dropped two straight after a season-opening victory and drew some loud boos in the first half while appearing to be standing still on defense.
