Video: Kevin Love’s game winning three beats Clippers

Jan 21, 2012, 8:28 AM EDT

Kevin Love was the happiest man in the building. (His agent, Dan Fegan, who is trying to get him a contract extension and was in the building, may have been second).

How did this play go down? We present to you a quote from each of the coaches, then we will let you draw your own conclusions.

“I have drawn up a play like that before for Brad Miller,” Minnesota coach Rick Adelman said, referring to his days as coach of the Sacramento Kings. “It was the same kind of shot because usually big guys won’t get out there and Kevin has great range, as you saw. With a second and a half to go we thought that was our best opportunity for a wide-open look.”

“It looked like it was a double screen. We got squeezed — we didn’t fight through it, then he popped up and Kevin can shoot shoot those shots,” Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said. “We didn’t go over it, we just didn’t do the coverage like we were supposed to.”

    As of now all 3 top posts are TWolves posts, including nationally televised Wolves-Clippers highlights.

    This is a strange new world. But I like it.

    The most amazing thing about the game was that Darko lead the TWolves in scoring. Has that ever happened before in his NBA career?

    First off, Hubie Brown is a treat to listen to. He seems to know something about every single player. I know he probably has notes and all that but still. Also, why isn’t anyone talking about Adelman’s coaching in that game. Best way to keep Deandre Jordan from blocking shots is going right at him. He really exposed him. Finally, the Griffin vs Love matchup was kinda overrated since they didn’t even guard each other. Both had really solid games though.

    I LOVE Hubie too and HATE it when he doesn’t commentate Bulls games. We always seem to get JVG.

    Loved this game last night too, it turned into a real treat. Adelman should have had his team defending the 3pt line better. That’s what disappointed me about his coaching last night. To allow an opponent to get that many wide open three’s was unforgivable. Rubio and Love though, wow. Great, clutch play by both.

    I wish I could find video of that play for Brad Miller

    Dan Fegan is not Love’s agent, he’s Ricky’s agent. Love is with Schwartz.

    I love the expression on Wayne Ellington’s face.
