MINNEAPOLIS -- Kevin Love had 30 points and 14 rebounds to finally carry the Minnesota Timberwolves over the .500 mark with an 88-77 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.

Kevin Martin added 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting and six boards for the Timberwolves (23-22) in their first game without center Nikola Pekovic, who is expected to miss at least a week with bursitis in his right ankle. They still managed to get over .500 after failing in their previous 10 chances to do so.

Al-Farouq Aminu had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Pelicans, who were missing star forward Anthony Davis with a dislocated left index finger. They shot just 35 percent and managed a season-low 35 points in the first half to snap a three-game winning streak.
