Kevin Love is one of the best passing big-men in the NBA. He’s blessed with the vision, hockey IQ and playmaking skills of a point guard despite being 6’10″ and arguably the best rebounding forward in the league. It’s a unique skill set that makes him difficult to guard. During a preseason game against Russian club CSKA Moscow on Monday night, Love delivered a sweet no-look bounce pass to Kevin Martin, who scored with an easy layup. Credit Martin, who was acquired by Minnesota in the offseason, for making a cut to the basket with the opponent who was marking him not paying attention. The Timberwolves are hoping that Love and Martin, both of whom are capable of scoring 20-plus points per game, become one of the top duos in the Western Conference this year. The franchise has not reached the playoffs since the 2003-04 season. Check out Love’s assist in the video below. Filed under: Headlines, NBA, Nick Goss

Timberwolves learn a lot from first exhibition game

Trio of Wolves already in shape thanks to international games

MINNEAPOLIS -- A.J. Price could sense it the first day of training camp in Mankato last week.

Keeping up wasn't as much...

Wolves' Othyus Jeffers no stranger to adversity

MINNEAPOLIS -- The fellow they call "O" gives up a good half-foot to Alexander Kaun. But within seconds of receiving his first pro action in more than two years, Othyus Jeffers challenges the lumbering, 6-foot-11 CSKA Moscow center. Drive. Layup. Swat. Next chance: Drive. Pull-up. Swat. When Jeffers gets a good look at the basket again, he doesn't back down -- not...
