WOLVES NOW: Postgame Q&A with Kevin Love

Here’s Timberwolves forward Kevin Love answering post-game questions with the media after a 136-130 double overtime loss to the Utah Jazz. The defeat dropped the Wolves to 40-42 on the season. Love: “We obviously wanted to finish .500 or better, but they came out and played harder than us. Media (often paraphrased): How important was it to get back to even? Obviously not important enough, but we fought hard in the fourth quarter and the two overtime periods and that was good, but we felt if we would have played harder from the start, we would have won that game.

DeMarcus Cousins and Kings come alive in the second half to beat the Timberwolves 106 to 103

DeMarcus Cousins and Kings come alive in the second half to beat the Timberwolves 106 to 103

Sacramento welcomed back Isaiah Thomas and came back from down 10 points and overcame a 43 point effort from Kevin Love in part thanks to a huge 35 points, 15 rebound and 6 assist effort from DeMarcus Cousins. Unfortunately, Cousins may have played his last game of the season as he picked up his 16th technical of the season late in the 4th. The Kings will not end the season on a 7 game losing streak, thanks to a huge effort from DeMarcus Cousins and company.  The Kings outscored the Wolves 59 to 51 in the second half to come back from 10 down and win 106 to 103. DeMarcus Cousins was...

No Truth for Love, No Love for Truth

No Truth for Love, No Love for Truth

Word is the Nets would like to see Kevin Love in black-and-white in the not-too-distant future, that whenever he becomes available, they will make a bid.  But Sunday night, the love for Love went unrequited.  The 6'10" uber power forward dissed his suitor ... and blamed his poor game (14 points, nine boards) on some undiagnosed illness. When asked post-game about the Nets post-season chances, his response was biting: "Sure," Love said. "They’ve got guys who can step up and hit shots. They’re in the East." - See more at: ...

Starting Five: Kevin not in a loving mood

NEW YORK -- Kevin Love couldn’t hit many shots on Sunday night against the Brooklyn Nets. But that didn’t stop the Minnesota Timberwolves forward from taking another shot after the game -- a parting shot. Asked about the Nets’ turnaround, Love replied, “They’re in the East.” He chuckled afterward. His frustration was evident. Love, the NBA’s fourth-leading scorer (26.3 ppg), was held to just 14 points on 5-for-14 shooting by Paul Pierce.

Kevin Love has answered the bell for 69 of 72 games, put up the kind of scoring and rebounding numbers that will secure him a place on one of the All-NBA teams, and yet again isn’t going to be able to get the Minnesota Timberwolves into the playoffs.

McMenamin: Love open to N.Y.

Not that you needed any hints, but earlier this week Phil Jackson made it clear that the Knicks plan to be major players in free agency when he said the organization is "in a talent hunt." Naturally, one of the players the Knicks will try to pursue is Kevin Love. Love will be a free agent in the 2015 offseason. Zach Lowe reported recently that the Wolves -- at this point -- have no plans to trade Love before he hits free agency. The Timberwolves' stance could change, though, if they get the inclination that Love is ready to sign elsewhere.

Lakers can still dream about Kevin Love

MINNEAPOLIS -- As far as auditions go, Kevin Love’s 22-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist triple-double in 29 minutes Friday was like a singer being sent straight through to Hollywood after he belted out his first note in front of the “American Idol” judges. If Love wanted to make an impression on Los Angeles Lakers fans watching at home and simultaneously suffering through a 143-107 drubbing at the hands of his Minnesota Timberwolves, mission accomplished.
