Kevin Love

  1. Timberwolves owner says Kevin Love no Kevin Garnett. Yet.

    Mar 30, 2012, 1:12 PM EST

    Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves competes in the three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Kevin Love is putting up video game numbers in March — averaging 31.2 points per game and having double-doubles in nine straight games. It’s led to a lot of hype — too much hype. Like saying this puts Love in the MVP discussion. He’s had an All-Star season, but a guy on a below .500…

  2. In case you missed it, Kevin Love is in Beast Mode

    Mar 29, 2012, 10:49 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Last night against the Bobcats, Kevin Love dropped 40 points and grabbed 19 rebounds. A good night by anyone’s standards, but for Love that was just his third highest total this month. Those kinds of numbers are almost becoming routine — he’s had nine straight double-doubles and had more than 20 points in 14 of…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Kevin Love

    Mar 29, 2012, 9:17 AM EST

    Kevin Love, Eduardo Najera

    What you missed while tweeting pictures of your food rather than eating it… Knicks 108, Magic 86: It was pretty much a perfect storm for the Knicks, and they need more like it. We broke it all down here. Minnesota 88, Bobcats 83: Kevin Love is in full on NBA2K12 beast mode — he had…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Drama with the Lakers? Shocking.

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:53 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while thinking you don’t hate your job as much as this guy… Lakers 104, Warriors 101: What’s a Laker win without more drama? During the game the drama was the Lakers not pulling away against an undersized Golden State side, then the Warriors fighting back from a double digits deficit in the…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  7. How Kevin Durant almost played for North Carolina

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    kevin durant texas

    Kevin Durant in Carolina blue rather than Texas burnt orange? I have trouble picturing it, but it almost happened, apparently. The New York Post’s Peter Vecsey had a story Sunday primarily about how Kevin Love and Kevin Durant are good friends going way back to seventh grade. How Durant has been over to Love’s family…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EST

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  10. Rick Adelman rips Darko’s motivation, conditioning

    Mar 22, 2012, 12:20 PM EST

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    With the emergence of Nikola Pekovic to play center along side Kevin Love, Adelman has not had to suffer Darko Milicic. Even when Pekovic was sent home from a road trip to rest sore ankles, Milicic could not get off the bench this week. When asked about using Milicic, Adelman ripped the former No. 2…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Five in a row for the Knicks

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  12. Could ‘Melo’s role with D’Antoni cost him a spot on Team USA?

    Mar 20, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Olympics

    Mike Krzyzewski and the coaches of Team USA have some very tough decisions ahead of them as they trim the list of 20 candidates down to 12 who get to suit up in London this summer for the Olympics. Look at the power forward spot. You only really need three and the guys on that…

    Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while getting emails from your dead friend…. Bulls 85, Magic 59: Chicago is now 10-4 this season when Derrick Rose sits and now have beaten the Heat and Magic without him in the last week. Credit where credit is due — they have been playing the best basketball in the NBA for…

  15. Chris Bosh starts talking to himself again, has big game

    Mar 19, 2012, 4:28 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    FOX Sports’ Chris Tomasson has the story: MIAMI — Chris Bosh was talking Sunday night and nobody was answering. That’s the way his teammates like it. You see, the Miami forward speaks to himself during games. And one of the apparent problems during his recent slump was he hadn’t been chattering enough. “Somebody said I wasn’t talking…

  16. Kevin Love, J.J. Barea have to be separated on bench

    Mar 19, 2012, 9:28 AM EST

    Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves competes in the three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Minnesota was a frustrated team Sunday — they were losing to the Kings, playing poorly and it outing like this that will have the Timberwolves on the outside looking in at the playoffs. And that caused everything to bubble over — during a fourth quarter timeout Kevin Love and J.J. Barea had to be separated…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EST

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Clippers collapse leads to a lot of talk

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EST

    Caron Butler

    What you missed while watching your NCAA bracket go up in flames…. Suns 91, Clippers 87: Phoenix was on the second night of a back-to-back-to-back so coach Alvin Gentry decided to rest Grant Hill and Steve Nash — and the Suns still rallied from 12 back in the fourth quarter to win. The Suns have…

  19. Report: Magic, Timberwolves discuss deal involving Jason Richardson

    Mar 14, 2012, 1:39 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Magic have been much busier in the days leading up to the NBA’s trade deadline than they’d like to be, thanks to Dwight Howard‘s uncertain future in Orlando and the many teams interested in offering a collection of less talented players in exchange for the league’s best big man. But he’s not the only…

  20. Timberwolves’ offense rolls without Rubio in high-scoring victory over Suns

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:35 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Timberwolves needed this. After losing Ricky Rubio to a season-ending injury just a few days ago, and after not being able to muster the energy to take care of business at home against the horrible Hornets the day the news was confirmed, Minnesota began a tough seven-game road trip on Monday with an offensive…

  21. Lakers tell players to cool it with “external chatter”

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    The Lakers held an informal meeting that developed out of a film session following their back-to-back losses to Detroit and Washington, ESPN reports. During the conversation, assistant coaches for the team asked players to refrain from “external chatter,” whatever that is, presumably about potential trades. From ESPN LA: “It wasn’t an airing out session,” Brown…

    We are going to have David Kahn to kick around for another year. Minnesota owner Glen Taylor told the Pioneer Press the team plans to bring David Kahn back next season. Kahn is in the final year of his deal but the team has two one-year options and they are picking one up. “I like…

  25. Lots of people who Pau Gasol will not save want Pau Gasol

    Mar 4, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    It’s really interesting to watch the evolution of a player like Pau Gasol, not only from the public’s consciousness perspective, but from that nebulous aspect of basketball which metrics can’t define. Our ability to define efficiency and production is better than ever and shouldn’t be disregarded when considering Gasol’s value. But there is another part…
