Love making himself part of the talk for MVP
MINNEAPOLIS | Kevin Love is carrying the Minnesota Timberwolves into playoff contention and is now part of the conversations for league MVP.
Love has torn through the past three games against two of the NBA’S best power forwards. He had 42 points and 10 boards against Lamarcus Aldridge in a win at Portland on Saturday, 39 points and 17 rebounds in a win over Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, and 29 points and 16 boards against the Blazers on Wednesday. The surprising Timberwolves are eighth in the Western Conference, one game behind Denver for the seventh seed.
