Kevin Love is playing so well this month he's beginning to garner MVP consideration.
And rightfully so.
Sure, the Minnesota Timberwolves might be on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture, but Love's numbers are getting harder and harder to ignore.
Love had 40 points and 19 rebounds Wednesday night to lift the Timberwolves to an 88-83 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.
It was Love's third-highest point total in March, and pushed his scoring average in 15 games in the month to 31.2.
Love has scored at least 20 points in 14 of his last 15 games and has 44 double-doubles on the season, including nine straight games.
Before the game, Bobcats coach Paul Silas said Love without question should be considered an MVP candidate, and his opinion didn't change after Love dominated his young big men Bismack Biyombo and Byron Mullens.
''If he continues to do what he's doing for a good portion of his career he's going to be one of the best ever,'' Silas said.
