MINNEAPOLIS: Antawn Jamison had 22 points and Anderson Varejao had 13 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and four steals in the Cavs' 98-87 win on a night the team's veterans outshined all the rookies on the floor.
The night was supposed to feature rookie point guards Kyrie Irving and Ricky Rubio, the only two rookies to make the All-Star ballot, but the two rarely squared off because Irving is a starter and Rubio comes off the bench.
Irving had 14 points and five assists, but also turned it over seven times. Rubio had 10 points, five assists and four fouls -- three of which Irving drew in a matter of minutes in the second quarter.
Kevin Love had 29 points and 14 rebounds, but shot just 8 of 19 for the Timberwolves. Derrick Williams, selected No. 2 overall behind Irving, had 12 points and four rebounds.
