Cleveland Cavaliers 125
Minnesota Timberwolves 99
The Minnesota Timberwolves were no match for LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland drilled the Wolves 125-99 at Target Center Friday night.
It was Cleveland's third straight game with more than 120 points.
1. The King owns the court
James didn't have his biggest night scoring, but he proved to be a handful. He had a double-double with 13 points 12 rebounds, while dishing out eight assists.
Few are more fun to watch in the open floor, and he didn't disappoint Friday.
2. J.R. Smith's night
Cleveland's J.R. Smith had a night he won't soon forget. He was 10-of-12 from the floor and 5-of-6 from behind the arc as he posted a season high 27 points.
Smith's production came in just 19 minutes, mostly in the first half.
3. Wiggins vs. Love
Andrew Wiggins has traditionally saved his best for the Cavaliers, and Friday night was no exception. Wiggins, who was originally drafted first overall in the 2014 NBA Draft by Cleveland, scored 35 points on 12-of-19 shooting.
He even got the best of the man he was traded for on this drive.
Former Wolves forward Kevin Love put up nice numbers on the offensive side of the court. He scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds, just missing another Target Center double-double.
