MINNEAPOLIS -- Kevin Love landed hard on his hip after a foul late in the game. Bryan Anger Jersey . His head snapped back from the impact and hit the floor. The All-Star power forward was all right afterward, a relief for the Minnesota Timberwolves. The win over the languishing Los Angeles Lakers was nice, too. Love had 31 points and 17 rebounds to lead the Timberwolves to 109-99 victory on Tuesday that spoiled Steve Nashs return and stuck the Lakers with their seventh straight defeat. "I just want to continue to keep playing and give this team all that I can," Love said. "Yeah, Ive taken a physical beating, but youve got to expect being one of the top guys that theyre going to come at you." Kevin Martin helped the Timberwolves get off to a fast start, scoring 14 of his season-high-tying 32 points in the opening 10 minutes as the NBAs highest-scoring first-quarter team surged to a 25-point lead midway through the second period. They stumbled some after halftime, letting the Lakers pull within seven points early in the fourth quarter. "Its just one of those things where the game isnt going to be as easy as you think," coach Rick Adelman said. "You just have to persevere." With Nikola Pekovic likely out through the All-Star break, the Wolves started a difficult week, a theme of Adelmans pregame message. They play at Oklahoma City on Wednesday and New Orleans on Friday before hosting Portland on Saturday, a crucial stretch for a team running out of time to climb back into the playoff picture. But Love picked up the Wolves and carried them to an important win, playing the part of the burly Pekovic by throwing his body at the basket as often as he could. He made it to the line for 18 free throws, making 13. "We realize how good he is. He has incredible toughness," Martin said, adding: "He gets dirty down there. Thats why we pay him the big bucks and thats why hes an All-Star starter, to do things like that." Nash had been sidelined since Nov. 10 because of nerve problems in his back. The soon-to-be-40-year-old two-time league MVP had seven points and nine assists in 25 minutes, about 10 more than he was supposed to play. "I feel a bit selfish in that we lost but it felt great just to play in the NBA again," Nash said, smiling. "Obviously the game didnt go as we hoped, but for me personally thats pretty cool to be back out there." Coach Mike DAntoni was pleased. "I thought he competed, and weve got to have everybody compete that way," DAntoni said. Steve Blake also returned, coming back from a torn ligament in his right elbow that had shelved him since Dec. 10. He ruptured his eardrum during the game but kept playing on another night of bad luck and bad defence for the fallen franchise. Blake was scoreless in 31 minutes and took only two shots. Fittingly, as soon as two guys came back, two more went out. Jodie Meeks (sprained right ankle, first quarter) and backup Jordan Hill (headache and neck strain, first quarter) were hurt for the Lakers, who have been without star Kobe Bryant for most of the season. Pau Gasol also sat out with a strained right groin and could be out until after the All-Star break. DAntoni said Meeks wont play the rest of the road trip at Cleveland on Wednesday or at Philadelphia on Friday. Hill was walking stiffly in the locker room after the game but was held out as a precaution, the coach said. "I just feel for those guys. I just was in their position," Blake said. "Unfortunately its a part of the game, and the rest of us have to pick it up." The Lakers reserves had a whopping 70 points, with Nick Young (24 points), Manny Harris (17 points) and former Timberwolves first-round draft pick Wes Johnson (15 points and nine rebounds) leading the way. But the Lakers still lost for the 19th time in their last 22 games and fell into a tie for last place in the Western Conference with Utah and Sacramento. This was also their first loss at Target Center in almost seven years, ending an 11-game run. NOTES: This was the league-high seventh time this season that Love had at least 30 points and 15 rebounds. He has 25 for his career, one more than Kevin Garnett on the franchises career list. ... The Lakers have allowed 100-plus points in 15 straight games, their longest such streak since 17 in a row during the 1986-87 season. DeSean Jackson Jersey . He also had some help Monday night.Hibbert scored a season-high 29 points to help Indiana beat the Utah Jazz 97-86 Monday night, ending the Pacers six-game losing streak. Kevin Pamphile Jersey . The result was a game-winning, power-play goal. Chiasson snapped a third-period tie and lifted the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory on Monday night. http://www.thebuccaneersfansclub.com/Black-Friday-Lee-Roy-Selmon-Jersey/ .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to complete a sweep of the Washington Capitals when the clubs cap a quick home-and-home series Tuesday night in the Steel City.Pakistan Women were wobbling before rain arrived to seal a surprise two-run win over India Women via the Duckworth-Lewis method. Sanar Mirs side restricted India to just 96-7 but had slipped from 71-3 to 77-6 in reply when the covers came on with 20 needed off 24 balls - Pakistan were two runs ahead on D/L at that point.Unchanged India simply didnt get going after being put in - the first boundary only arriving in the eighth over when Mithali Raj (16) drove Sadia Yousuf over cover to the rope.Skipper Raj was otherwise largely subdued as Pakistans attack squeezed the life out of the innings after Anam Amin (1-9) and Asmavia (1-14) Iqbal claimed an early breakthrough apiece.Veda Krishnamurthy (24 off 19) and Jhulan Goswami (14) provided a little impetus but at the halfway stage India - who beat Bangladesh in their opening game - looked well short.In contrast Pakistans chase motored early on as Bibi Nahida (14), brought into the team after Javeria Khan was ruled out of the tournament with a fractured thumb, struck consecutive fours off AAnuja Patils first over. Adam Humphries Jersey. Nahidas positive approach back-fired when she holed out to mid-on off Shikha Pandey but Sidra Ameen kept the board ticking, passing her previous best score of 20 in the process. Gayakwad gave India a little hope when she bowled Ameen on the sweep - the opener hitting across the line to be bowled off-stump - and that grew in the following over when Bismah Maroof drove Harmanpreet Kaur to Jhulan at mid-off to make it 50-3 off 10 overs. With the pressure building - and the rain clouds gathering - Raj continued to lead by example, diving to her right to catch Iram Javed superbly.Verma missed a run out and a simple stumping chance as Muneeba Ali came down the wicket but quickly made amends by collecting Smiritis shy and running out Asmavia Iqbal before throwing down the stumps at the non-strikers end to send Sana Mir back first ball.The game was back in the balance when light drizzle became heavy rain, forcing the players from the pitch.Watch Australia Women take on New Zealand Women from 9.45am on Monday, on Sky Sports 2.
