MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Rookie Wesley Johnson scored 16 points and the new-look Minnesota Timberwolves remained undefeated in the preseason with a 122-108 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.
Michael Beasley had 21 points and Kevin Love added 16 points and 15 rebounds for the Timberwolves (3-0), who won just 15 games last season.
Carmelo Anthony scored 19 points for Denver, but was just 2 for 9 from the floor. He went 15 for 16 from the free throw line.
Anthony played only 21 minutes and the Nuggets rested Chauncey Billups. They also were without Kenyon Martin and Chris Andersen, who are recovering from offseason surgeries, and Al Harrington, who injured his left foot in the preseason opener against Portland.
