“It’s a tough guard when you’ve got a 4 man who can shoot the ball,” the 6-foot-9 Love said. “Six-foot-eight or above and shooting the 3-ball like that, its tough to guard.”
He’s been that way all season, leading the NBA in rebounding while shooting .435 on 3s, good for 11th in the NBA in when the day began.
The Timberwolves trailed by four with 5:46 to play, but closed the game with a 19-1 surge to snap a five-game losing streak. Love scored eight points during the run, pounding his chest after the second of his two 3s.
Corey Brewer had 14 points and four steals and Luke Ridnour added 16 points and nine assists for the Timberwolves, who have made it a habit of letting leads slip away in the fourth quarter this season.
“We really played team ball,” coach Kurt Rambis said. “It seems like those games, that we’ve had where everyone’s contributed and had a pretty decent game scoring wise, we seem to win the ballgame.”
Rambis went back to starters Ridnour and Brewer out of the timeout, and the Wolves responded. Milicic, the 7-foot center, made a nifty behind-the-back dribble and spin move for a layup and Love hit a 3-pointer to give the Wolves a 95-94 lead.View Entire Story
