Wolves blast Spurs 09 Apr 14

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Ricky Rubio scored 23 points and Gorgui Dieng had 12 points and 15 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 110-91 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night.

Kevin Love had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Corey Brewer scored 14 points and the Timberwolves, who have beaten Miami and San Antonio in two of their last three games.

Kawhi Leonard had 11 points and six rebounds for the Spurs, who were playing without Tony Parker and have now lost two of three following a 19-game winning streak. Parker has a back injury, but coach Gregg Popovich said before the game he didn’t believe it was that serious.
