Things got a bit chippy Saturday night in Minnesota between the Timberwolves Rockets. Midway through the third quarter, Louis Scola was hammered by Kevin Love and fell to the floor. While running back down the court, Love looked to have intentionally stepped on Scola’s face.
Following the game, Love had this to say: ”I fell down. He was kind of right there,” ”I got Size-19 feet. He just happened to be there. I had nowhere to go. I got tripped up. I had nowhere to step. It is just heat of the moment-type play.”
This is not the first bad blood incident between the two power forwards. On Monday night, Scola threw a pass that hit Love right in the groin. However, this still doesn’t make up for the immature and Suh-like play by Love.
During Saturday's NBA game in Minnesota, Timberwolves forward Kevin Love stepped on Houston Rockets forward Luis Scola while he was down on the ground, and some people are wondering whether it was really an accident.
The Timberwoves and Rockets last faced each other Monday night in Houston. During the first quarter of that game, Scola saved an offensive possession for...
Basketball is a competitive sport and the NBA is a competitive league. With that being said Kevin Love was out of line Saturday when he stepped on Luis Scola’s face after a steal on Saturday.
I am sometimes skeptical about the passion the players play with on a game to game basis in the NBA, but there was no lack of it between Love and Scola the other night. They had been playing...
The NBA has come down on Minnesota Timberwolves star forward Kevin Love on Monday. The NBA announced that they have suspended Love for two games without pay for stepping on Houston Rockets forward Luis Scola’s face.
The NBA said he was suspended for “driving his foot into the upper body and face” and gave it Flagrant 2 foul. I think this is the right amount of...
There's two types of players in the NBA, there's players who fight for every inch on defense and offense, and then theirs players who fall on the ground, begging for fouls, every time they feel a little contact. Luis Scola's like a girl who insults herself and then desperately looks up waiting for someone to compliment her. He looks like a floppy c*ck out there. On...
In between Super Bowls, Puppy Bowls, Adriana Lima, cars that turn into hot European models, and this monstrosity,there was actually some non-Super Bowl-related action in the sports world this weekend, such as this somewhat surprising feat of vileness from Kevin Love on Saturday. Apparently he didn’t take too kindly to Luis Scola’s nutshot earlier in the week.
MINNEAPOLIS The last time the Timberwolves were .500 or better this late in the season was in 2006-07, when Minnesota was 22-22.
To put it into perspective, Kevin Garnett was still a Timberwolf, not a Celtic. Kevin Love, currently the longest-tenured Wolves player on the Wolves' roster, was a senior at Lake Oswego High School in Oregon.
Indeed, it's been a long five years...
