PHILADELPHIA — Kevin Love scored 16 of his 26 points in a dominant third quarter and Nikola Pekovic had 16 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 126-95 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.


Kevin Martin scored 18 points and Corey Brewer had 15 to help the Timberwolves move back to .500 (17-17). Minnesota made 16 of 26 3-pointers.


Thaddeus Young scored 20 points for the Sixers, who snapped a four-game winning streak. The Sixers had won the final four games of a six-game road trip.


The Timberwolves ended any threat of Philadelphia extending its streak in a hurry. They led by 16 at the half and Love hit a pair of 3s in the third to build a 31-point lead.


The Timberwolves had seven players score in double figures.


Nets 91, Hawks 86


NEW YORK — Joe Johnson snapped out of a slump with 23 points against his former team, and the Brooklyn Nets matched a season high with their third straight victory by beating the Atlanta Hawks.


Mirza Teletovic scored 16 points and Alan Anderson added 14 starting in place of the injured Deron Williams as the Nets moved to 2-0 on four-game homestand that finishes with visits from Golden State on Wednesday and Miami on Friday.


Despite yet another injury to a key player, the Nets look ready to test themselves against those powerful teams after matching their three consecutive victories from Dec. 7-12.


Paul Millsap scored 16 points for the Hawks, who lost their third in a row to equal their worst stretch of the season.
