MINNEAPOLIS (AP)– Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and the Los Angeles Lakers’ towering front line overwhelmed Kevin Love on the boards in a 90-79 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night.

Gasol had 17 rebounds and 12 points, Bynum had 14 points and seven boards and the Lakers scored 28 second-chance points to overcome a poor shooting night and win their fifth straight game.

Wes Johnson had 20 points and eight rebounds for the Timberwolves, who led for much of the first three quarters before the Lakers asserted themselves.

Love had 13 points and 11 rebounds, his 47th straight double-double. The last time he did not have one was against the Lakers on Nov. 19. But he was just 2 for 10 from the floor and barely kept the longest double double streak since 1980 alive.

Kobe Bryant scored 24 points, but made just 8 of 18 shots in an ugly offensive game for both teams.
