Kevin Love hits off-balance jumper, gets high-five from Spike Lee (VIDEO)

Nov 4, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

Kevin Love put on a show in Madison Square Garden — 34 points and 15 rebounds, he was getting buckets at the rim and knocking down threes. He was showing off the kind of versatile game that had to make Knicks fans jealous.

Including Spike Lee.

In the fourth quarter the Knicks had closed a 21-point Minnesota lead down to the striking distance of single digits, but Love kept making plays. None better than this stumbling, off-balance, trying-to-draw-the-foul 17-foot bank from the wing. Then as he ran up court he got a high-five from Lee.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $15,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Monday, Nov. 4th games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $2,000. Starts at 7pm ET. Here’s the link.

That’s a good night, Kevin.

    Congrats K-Love you’re officially a BOSS. Even Spike Lee can’t deny it.

    Love was probably thinking.

    Maybe Spike will give me a role in a future movie. “White Men Can Play”

    Is he relevant somehow?

    Spike Lee was like C’MON MAN!

    why is that clown still getting free publicity? look at me for some reason I can still afford court side seats and am as obnoxious as I was when the knicks were relevant.just go away we hated you then and we hate you now.

      After 1973, when were the Knicks relevant?

    Not many people can make ‘Melo look foolish and then get a high five from Spike Lee. Well played, sir.

      Even I can make Melo look foolish on defense come on man.

      To have the balls to make a circus shot and high five Spike Lee, that’s impressive.

    A high five from Spike! I bet he is considering retirement after such a momentous accomplishment. Just because the NBA is at least as much a pop culture/celebrity exhibition as it is a sporting league, doesn’t mean you have to cover it that way. Please, just pretend the game of basketball is actually what this league is about.
    On the other hand, kudos on writing an article not about the Heat or Celtics. (I’ll ignore the fact that this was written for Knicks fans, and pretend it is a T-Wolves post.)
