Kevin Love does most of his dirty work inside for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It turns out he has quite the outside shooting touch, too.

Wolves' Love claims 3-point title over Durant

In those brief seconds, it went beyond statistics. Probability was irrelevant. It didn't matter that Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the 3-point arc this season, the worst of any player competing in theNBA's Foot Locker Three-Point Contest. It mattered even less that few analysts gave Love even a mention among the legitimate contenders...

Love, NBA All-Stars play game worth watching

The upside was that it was hard to count either team out. In a way, that seemingly unstoppable offense was also the downside in Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game, which the Western Conference won, 152-149. Although the West led for the entire night, it squandered a large lead in a game where defense simply ceased to exist. The teams combined for an unheard-of 301 points as the...

Kevin Love Tweets Picture After 3-Point Shootout Win

It’s not often, if ever,  that the NBA’s best rebounder is also the NBA 3-point shootout champion. But it happened on Saturday night as the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love won the NBA 3-point shootout. Love defeated Oklahoma City Thunder small forward and social media superstar, Kevin Durant, in a tiebreaker after both finished with 16...Read the Rest...

Rubio, Williams, Love representing Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS Three members of the Minnesota Timberwolves -- Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Derrick Williams -- arrived Thursday in Orlando to participate in NBA All-Star Weekend. After a day of travel, interviews and photographs (and maybe a minute or two of relaxing), the festivities begin Friday in full force. A look at the events in which you can watch and cheer for Love, Rubio and...

Is K-Love The Best White USA Born NBA Player Since Bird?

When Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love is mentioned his three-point shooting prowess does not immediately come to mind; however he walked off the court Saturday night as the King of the outside shot after winning the 2012 NBA Three-Point Contest. K-Love mowed down a field of competitors that are far better known for knocking down the trey than he is including Kevin...

Jeremy Evans, Kevin Love buck the trend

Jeremy Evans was an unknown entering All-Star Weekend. He was a mere replacement. You probably could not even look at his jersey and figure out who he was. For his final dunk, he donned a green Karl Malone jersey and skied over Celebrity All-Star Game MVP Kevin Hart (a hookup from dunk mentor Dwight Howard) wearing a mailman costume. With one hand outstretched toward the rim and...

Love and Evans Grab All-Star Crowns

The festivities on Saturday of the NBA All-Star weekend are always some of my favorites. I have great memories of watching Michael Jordan and Dominque Wilkins squaring off against each other in some of the greatest dunk contests of all time. I’ll never forget watching Larry Bird and Craig Hodges shoot the lights out during the 3-point contest. It’s a shame that most of the top...

All-Star Weekend: Love Wins 3-point Shootout, Evans Wins Slam Dunk Contest

In the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout, the scores were a bit low, but the forwards put on a good show as Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love outlasted the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant 17-14 in the final round tiebreaker. James Jones posted the best round of the night in the first round with 22, but he fell off in the second round with a score of just 12 as Love...

Sweet 17: Wolves have already matched last season

(With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer After two miserable seasons and four bad ones before that, the Minnesota Timberwolves had nowhere to go except up. They're showing a lot more than marginal improvement. The Timberwolves entered the All-Star break of this lockout-shortened season with a buzzer-beating win over division rival and Western Conference playoff competitor...
