Kevin Love returned to the Target Center for the first time Saturday night in a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform. He was roundly booed by the crowd when he was introduced before the game.

But he and his Cleveland teammates took command of the game in the fourth quarter and defeated the Timberwolves 106-90, the Star Tribune reports.

The Wolves were ahead by two points with 9:22 left in the game, but Cleveland went on a 23-5 run to put the game out of reach.

Love scored 14 points and had 17 rebounds. But Andrew Wiggins, the player who came to the Timberwolves in the trade that sent Love to Cleveland, played strong, scoring 33 points while going up against LeBron James for much of the game.

The game's leading scorer was no surprise – LeBron James, who had 36 points including 16 in the fourth quarter. Cleveland (29-20) has now won 10 straight games.

Thad Young scored 19 points and center Nikola Pekovic had 14 points and 12 rebounds for Minnesota.
