Wolves throttle Utah behind Love's first career triple-double


Kevin Love's first career triple-double propelled the Wolves to a 121-104 win over the Jazz in Utah Saturday night.

Love finished with 37 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. His previous career-high for assists in a game was nine, which he reached before the end of the third quarter. He also joined some elite company with his ninth consecutive game with at least 25 points and 10 rebounds.

Love has scored at least 30 points in five of the last six games and seven times overall in February.

The victory puts the Wolves on a three-game win streak, tying a their longest such win streak of the season. They can stretch it to four straight with a win over the Trail Blazers in Portland on Sunday. A win would also put the Wolves (27-28) back at .500.
