MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kevin Love had 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 104-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings Sunday night.

Love hit 3 of 6 3-pointers, including one with 1:07 to play to give Minnesota a 97-95 lead and the Timberwolves hung on.

Kevin Martin added 31 points and rookie Gorgui Dieng had his first career double-double with season highs in points (12) and rebounds (11) for Minnesota. He also had five blocks.

The Timberwolves won for the 33rd time, their most wins since 2005-06.

Derrick Williams scored 26 points and 11 rebounds off the bench for Sacramento, which has officially been eliminated from postseason contention. Isaiah Thomas had 27 points, including two 3-pointers in the final 15 seconds to keep it close.
