If the below video can't encourage you to donate a coat, then I don't know what will. The Minnesota Timberwolves' Kevin Love has once again partnered with Comcast and The Salvation Army to host a coat drive to help those in need this winter. From now until Dec. 12, Love is inviting all fans to bring new and gently used coats to any of eight metro-area drop-off locations. Love will then personally deliver all donations to The Salvation Army on Dec. 19. You can see all the details about this great cause here. The coat drive video "The Session" is just full of comedy gold. Look at Nicola the "Peksecutioner" breathing through his "neck gills" at the 0:47 mark. And of course there is K-Love playing his sax throughout.  Take a gander at the legendary Greg Stiemsma above. If only Alexey Shved could have made an appearance, this would be the best. video. ever. Even better, as a thank you to those who donate, Love has purchased tickets to the Timberwolves' Dec. 26 game vs. the Houston Rockets and the Dec. 29 game vs. the Phoenix Suns. Fans will receive a pair of tickets to one of these games for each coat they donate. What could be better than donating coats, free NBA tickets, and hilarious parody videos. [MNWolves]

Wolves' Love returns to form in solid win

MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Love sat. The lead was 19, the clock was ticking down, and the power forward had his 36 points, his 13 rebounds, as much as he could have asked for. And so they clapped as Love settled into his chair, maybe a bit sweatier than he would have been last year, maybe a bit more relieved, but so far from ready to admit that this could be the norm. Oh, was he ready...

Wolves Tuesday: 3-pointers not falling

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...

No Love: Celtics top Timberwolves 104-94

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. The Wolves led by four at halftime and trailed by just seven at the end of the third quarter. But the Celtics’ defense locked down in the 4th, stopping Minnesota...

Timberwolves 91, Cavaliers 73

Box Score: Timberwolves 91 Cavs 73

The Cavs fell behind on a Kevin Love jump hook in the first minute and never could quite catch up to the Timberwolves on Friday night. Scoring continues to be the Cavaliers’ glaring weekness, which is the worst weakness to have in a game where you try to outscore your opponent. The Wine and Gold shot just 34.5% from the field and scored a season low 73 points.   Alonzo Gee led...

Wolves Wednesday: A Saints connection?

MINNEAPOLIS So you've read my story about SportVU cameras in the NBA that posted today, right? RIGHT?
