Kevin Love recorded his 49th double double in a row, but it wasn't enough to overcome Andre Iguodala's triple double and a still hot Sixers squad. Iguodala scored 22 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 13 assists to lead the Sixers to a 111-100 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Still, Love did a put on a show for the Wells Fargo crowd with 21 points and 23 rebounds, which put him just one consecutive double double shy of the record held by Sixers' legend Moses Malone.
Despite Love's monster performance on the boards, the Sixers still out-rebounded the T'Wolves 39-33 and as has been the case all season, the Sixer bench outplayed the oppositions. The Sixers bench outscored MInnesota's 45-32, with the trio of Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner & Lou Williams all in double figures.
The win pushes the Sixers back over the .500 mark on the season at 31-30. Next up for the Sixers is a Sunday evening matchup at home with the Golden State Warriors.
