Robert Covington scored 21 points, and the Timberwolves earned their fourth straight win.
Minnesota (11-11) reached .500 for the first time since Oct. 31. Karl-Anthony Towns and Derrick Rose each had 16 points, and Taj Gibson finished with 13.
The Timberwolves had dropped 14 of their last 15 against San Antonio, but it held the Spurs to 39.5 percent shooting.

Minnesota improved to 7-2 since trading disgruntled star Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia in exchange for Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a second-round draft pick.
