The Kevin Love express rolled on, but not without some intrigue. Love woke up Wednesday morning in discomfort and spent the entire day thinking there was no way he would be able to play.
He even had a conversation with reserve forward Anthony Tolliver to prepare him for an assignment change. “I told A.T. to be ready tonight,” Love said.
Love hobbled through Wednesday’s game for 26 minutes and finished with 16 points and 21 rebounds. Coach Rambis sat him for the entire fourth quarter. By then, the Wolves were well on their way to a rare comfortable win, which gave everyone in the organization a chance to enjoy the milestone instead of fretting over another loss.
