The Washington Wizards thought that playing a team with a worse record than theirs, the Minnesota Timberwolves, would give them an easy chance to finally win on the road. Kevin Love doesn't see it that way.
Love has 14 points and three rebounds to lead the Wolves to a 28-18 edge over the Wizards after the first quarter.
Love has half of Minnesota's points and is well on his way to his 26th straight double-double and 35th overall. He even hit two three-pointers.
Al Thornton leads the Wizards with eight points. Washington shot 41% from the field.
