Love leads Wolves past Pacers
Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Love, one of the NBA's most prized free agents in the summer of 2015, recently told GQ magazine that he was "having fun" in Minnesota.
He showed why on Wednesday night.
Love had 42 points and 16 rebounds in the Timberwolves' 104-91 victory over the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers.
The All-Star forward was 14-of-22 from the floor, 5-of-10 from beyond the arc and 9-of-10 from the foul line in the triumph.
The Santa Monica, California native has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, but Love told the magazine that Minnesota has the "better team" and has a "better foundation."
Ricky Rubio dished out 17 assists for the Wolves, who have won two straight on the heels of a four-game losing streak.
Paul George tallied 35 points on 11-of-22 shooting and knocked down all 10 of his foul shots for Indiana, which has dropped three of its last five.
