Kevin Love had 31 points and 31 rebounds ~ Timberwolves defeat the Knicks
My friend texted me, "As Apollo Creed said to Rocky: Ain't gonna be a next time." I laughed, because I know I'll see him again eventually so I'm not overly concerned. PLUS, I guess I'm Rocky in that text exchange, so I'm good with it.
Well, needless to say I missed a great performance by Kevin Love. Based on the score and the tweets it didn't look like there was a lot of defense being played. However, Love's 31-point and 31-rebound night deserves a post.
A few months ago I watched an episode of Entourage and I noticed that Kevin Love was doing a cameo. Of course, he played himself. I knocked the scene, and thought that the casting folks on the show must be hard up for talent. I take it back, Kevin. Tonight, you were a star. Well deserved!
The Knicks had balanced scoring (i.e. starting five all had double digits) but it wasn't enough. The Timberwolves defeated the Knicks with a score of 112-103. Michael Beasley came up big again in this game, but he only had 35 points this time around.
Wowsers... I guess I should've stayed a couple of extra nights in Minneapolis, after all. I need to get to a game...
