Kevin Love scored 27 points and pulled in 10 rebounds to lead the Timberwolves to a 112-101 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at Target Center, ESPN reports.

Love also had six assists and three blocks. Kevin Martin also scored 26 for the Wolves and J.J. Barea dropped in 19 points off the bench. Nikola Pekovic scored 14.

Ricky Rubio also had 11 points for the Wolves and led the team with 10 assists.

Brandon Knight led the scoring for the Bucks with 21.

The win pushed the Timberwolves above the .500 mark, boosting the team's record to 32-31. Even with the victory, the Wolves remain stuck in third place in the Northwest Division of the NBA Western Conference, and are still attempting to secure one of the conference's playoff spots.

The victory wrapped up a four-game home stand for the Wolves at Target Center. The team next heads to Charlotte, North Carolina, to take on the Bobcats Friday night.
