Wizards limit Timberwolves’ stars to snap losing skid
Love, who entered the game averaging 26.8 points, had 16 in the first quarter but only nine afterward as Washington broke its four-game losing streak with a 104-100 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night.
Love, who made five of his first six shots, missed eight of his final 11 to finish with 25. He had 11 rebounds, also below his season average.
Martel Webster’s 3-pointer with 42 seconds to play gave the Wizards a 100-98 lead. Beal added two free throws with 12.9 seconds left to make it 102-98.
Webster had 17 points, including five 3-pointers.
Love played half the second quarter, missed his only shot, and had just one point, but Minnesota led 63-51 in the half.
“I thought when we came out to start the game, it was again lethargic. We weren’t dictating things defensively. We got upset at halftime and turned it on,” Wittman said.
After the game, he joked that he liked the meeting’s result.
“After halftime I was going to have another one. I wasn’t going to go in there. I’ll do whatever it takes for a win, trust me,” Wittman said.
Besides holding Love down, Washington also stopped Kevin Martin, who was averaging 24.4 points. He was held to 11.
“We need everybody every night. We can’t usually get by if we have a couple guys with off games,” Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman said.
