PHILADELPHIA -- All-Star forward Kevin Love routinely records double-doubles for the Minnesota Timberwolves. On Tuesday night, though, it was his teammates who redoubled their efforts. Reserve guard Alexey Shved scored 17 points, and Josh Howard and J.J. Barea recorded double-doubles as Minnesota ripped the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-88. Love, playing his seventh game since returning from a hand injury, shot 2-for-10 and finished with a season-low six points. He grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out five assists while his less-heralded teammates picked up the scoring slack. Minnesota (8-8) won its second straight. The victory was also the Timberwolves' most one-sided of the season.

MINNEAPOLIS It's impossible not to have faith in Kevin Love, but in his first weeks back this season, I've found myself holding my breath during every 3-point shot he attempts. It hasn't been pretty; he's shooting just 19.4 percent from long range. Of course Love is still getting his shooting back after five weeks out, and with the strides he made from long-range...
Maybe my title is a little bit of an exaggeration; Kevin Love scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. But Timberwolves puns are hard, so sue me.This game was both closer and not as close as the final score indicated.
