Kevin Love high-fives Spike Lee after making tough shot (Video)

Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love was so excited after hitting a tough bank shot down the stretch of Sunday's game at Madison Square Garden that he gave Knicks superfan Spike Lee a high-five as he passed him in the front row. Love was thrown off balance after ducking to avoid a leaping Pablo Prigioni, which forced him to put up the wild shot. Luckily, Love&...

Video: Kevin Love high-fives Spike Lee after nailing circus shot against Knicks

Tweet It’s near impossible to think about the New Yorks Knicks without super fan Spike Lee coming to mind.

Cavs end Wolves winning streak

The Minnesota Timberwolves had exactly what they wanted -- their best player with an open shot and the game on the line.

"Heck yeah, we'll take that shot every time," said guard...

Kevin Love and rookie Michael Carter-Williams earn NBA Player of the Week honors

Today the NBA recognized Carter-Williams' outstanding play, naming him...

Wolves can't overcome slow start, poor shooting in loss to Cavs

Not this time. Not after the Timberwolves surrendered a 23-point lead to the NBA's coldest shooting team coming in. Not with Ricky Rubio becoming such a non-factor that Rick Adelman benched him the entire fourth quarter. Not with Anderson Varejao throwing off J.J. Barea's last-second push toward the hoop long enough to force a dish to a contested Kevin Love. And not with...

Amar’e Stoudemire OK with minutes limit — for now

For now, it all makes sense to Amar’e Stoudemire. Coming off three knee surgeries in 10 months, including another this past offseason, Stoudemire is on a minutes restriction and won’t play in back-to-back games with the Knicks. He played Thursday in Game 2. So he sits Sunday in Game 3. Despite the 2-0 Timberwolves bringing a big front line to the Garden that includes power forward...
