CLEVELAND (AP) — All the losses and injuries had been piling up for weeks on the Timberwolves. They were shaken, unsure, almost helpless to stop them.
They were desperate for a break. And finally, they got one.
Luke Ridnour scored 21 points, Ricky Rubio added 13 and 10 assists and Minnesota snapped an eight-game road losing streak, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-92 on Monday.
“We needed that bad, man,” Ridnour said.
Nikola Pekovic added 16 points and 10 rebounds as Minnesota ended a four-game losing streak and improved to just 4-16 since losing Love.
“It’s been a long month for us,” Ridnour said. “It’s always tough. We’re competitors. You want to win games. Losing, as much as you don’t want to say it, takes a toll on you. This is a good one for us.”
