Minnesota Timberwoves

  1. Kevin Love says nice things about staying in Minnesota

    Apr 5, 2011, 12:44 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love may or may not be happy with the way things are going in Minnesota. It doesn’t really matter right now. He has another year guaranteed on his deal plus a team option for the year after that. Even if he wanted out – and there is certainly interest around the league in his…

  2. Timberwolves Kevin Love expected to return Wednesday

    Mar 30, 2011, 10:26 AM EST

    kevin love rebound

    After he injured his groin there was talk Kevin Love might shut it down for the season. Groins can linger, the Timberwolves were only playing for pride, why push it? But he’s pushed, and he practiced Tuesday and is expected to play Wednesday against the Bulls, he told the Star Tribune. “I feel good,” he…

  3. Frivolous lawsuit file: referee sues Wolves beat writer over tweet

    Mar 15, 2011, 5:33 PM EST

    Scott Skiles, Bill Spooner

    UPDATE  5:33 pm: The NBA has addressed the issue, through the comments of spokesman Tim Frank (via SB Nation): “We investigated the content of the tweet when it appeared, found it to be without substance, and informed Mr. Spooner that we considered the matter closed. We subsequently advised Mr. Spooner’s lawyer that we did not…

  4. Kevin Love’s double-double streak comes to an end at 53

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:40 AM EST

    Kevin Love 2

    The last time Kevin Love didn’t register a double-double? You were still dreaming about Thanksgiving dinner. It was Nov. 19 of last year. But as part of an anemic Timberwolves offensive performance against Golden State, Love ended up with just 6 points on 1-of-6 shooting and his double-double streak ended at 53. The Warriors David…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love’s streak comes to an end

    Mar 14, 2011, 5:40 AM EST

    Kevin Love Sits

    What you missed while undergoing virtual dolphin therapy… Boston’s defense setting records against the Milwaukee offense was our game of the night. Warriors 100, Timberwolves 77: Kevin Love’s double-double streak comes to an end — he scored just 6 points on 1-of-6 shooting (he still had 12 boards). Against the usually soft-in-the-middle Warriors. Did not…

  6. Kevin Love makes it dramatic in setting modern double-double record

    Mar 10, 2011, 10:13 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love has made double-doubles automatic. He’s taken the drama out of getting them. So he added a little drama himself Wednesday by almost not playing due to a sore knee (he banged knees with an opponent last game and it swelled up), then playing with a balky brace on it. Didn’t matter. He got…

  7. Kevin Love gets it — team losses bigger than double-double streak

    Mar 8, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Make no mistake — Kevin Love’s streak of 51 consecutive double-doubles is impressive. It shows not only desire and some skills, it shows a guy bringing it every night. In today’s NBA that is something that deserves some recognition. But the streak has not led to wins. The Timberwolves are 11-40 in those 51 games,…

  8. Kevin Love ties Moses Malone with record 51 straight double-doubles

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:08 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    With a three pointer from straight away in the third quarter Tuesday night, Kevin Love recorded his 51st consecutive double-double (at least 10 points and 10 rebounds). That tied Moses Malone for the all-time record. Well, all-time modern record (post NBA/ABA merger). Turns out Wilt Chamberlain did it 224 times back in the day. But…

  9. Timberwolves buy out Eddy Curry. Anybody interested? Anybody? Bueller?

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:51 AM EST

    ecurry_beard

    It seemed unlikely that Eddy Curry was ever going to suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s not like they were ever going to take minutes away from Kevin Love to give to Curry. Heck, I wouldn’t take minutes away from Darko to give to Curry. So the two sides agreed to a buyout, the…

  10. Kevin Love got away with one Tuesday night

    Feb 9, 2011, 2:49 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Kevin Love, he of the Wes Unseld-like outlet passes, picked up a sweet length-of-the-court assist last night. Thing of beauty. Check it out. But it was a rules violation. Watch it again. Love never comes out of bounds after grabbing the ball (following a made shot), he just gets one foot out of bounds and…

  11. Three-team talks about Carmelo Anthony trade continue, Nuggets still dragging feet

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 11:06 am: In an effort to push the deal forward, Knicks owner James Dolan called Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke directly to negotiate a deal, according to the New York Daily News. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that…

  12. Video: Watch Kevin Love learn he is an All-Star

    Feb 7, 2011, 2:31 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    Fun little video from the people at Recording NBA History: They were inside the Timberwolves locker room when Kevin Love learned he will be an NBA All-Star this season. Kurt Rambis gives the news… and you wonder how much the cameras in the room changed the amount of ribbing Love would have taken from teammates.…

  13. Raptors sign Sundiata Gaines to 10-day contract

    Jan 13, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Sundiata Gaines

    Is there a dramatic game winner in the Raptors future? Toronto has signed guard Sundiata Gaines to a 10-day contract, giving them a little more depth at the point as Jose Calderon and Jerryd Bayless fight through injuries. Gains made some fans last season in Utah — highlighted by hitting a dramatic game winner —…

  14. Doc Rivers: Michael Beasley could lead the league in scoring

    Jan 4, 2011, 2:22 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Michael Beasley has got the ball in his hands in Minnesota, creating his own shots and being the go-to guy. And thriving in that role. With one shot to tie the Boston Celtics Monday and send the game into overtime, the Timberwolves called Beasley’s number. Everyone in the building knew that’s what was going to…

  15. Kahn still thinks Darko will be an All-Star

    Jan 4, 2011, 10:25 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    Darko Milicic this season has been… okay. Pedestrian. Average. Giving the Timberwolves 9 points and 5 rebounds a game, shooting about as well as he has the last few years, getting more chances, turning the ball over a little more. He’s been a big body that has given the Timberwolves a passable big to play…
