Charlotte Hornets 104

Minnesota Timberwolves 95

The Minnesota Timberwolves couldn't make it three in a row, losing to the Charlotte Hornets 104-95 at Target Center Tuesday night.

1. Wolves winless at home

While Minnesota is a perfect 4-0 on the road, they have struggled at home and are still searching for their first Target Center victory after Tuesday night's loss.

2. No Wiggins, Rubio or KG

For the first time in his NBA career,  Andrew Wiggins missed a game. He was out with a sore knee. The Wolves were also without Ricky Rubio and Kevin Garnett as the team was playing their second game in as many nights.

Zach LaVine had 20 points and eight assists in the loss for the Wolves. Karl-Anthony Towns added his fifth double-double of the season with 19 points and 13 rebounds.

3. Hornets bench provides plenty of sting

Charlotte's bench outscored the Wolves 57-23. They were led by Jeremy Lin with 19 points, while Jeremy Lamb added 18 of his own.

Cody Zeller contributed 14 points and six boards for the Hornets as well.

Tweet of the Night:

So this isn't exactly Wolves related anymore, but as Kevin Love found out Tuesday, be careful what you Tweet out.

Next up:

The Wolves (4-3) continue their home stand Thursday night against the Denver Nuggets.
