AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Kevin Love had 26 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 121-94 rout of the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.

Love only played 30 minutes, sitting out the fourth quarter with the big lead. Detroit was unable to stop him inside, outside or on the break. Several of his seven assists came on his trademark 70-foot outlet passes off missed shots.

Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin added 18 points each for Minnesota, which finished with six players in double figures.

Brandon Jennings had 20 points for Detroit, but Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond were held to a combined total of 18 points and 10 rebounds.

The Pistons have relied heavily on their frontcourt this season, but didn't have the advantage in that matchup against Minnesota.
