This is a team that, with mounting injuries and a posse of benchwarmers playing superstar minutes, managed to mount massive comebacks in back-to-back games, the kind where you figure if they'd had a minute or two more they'd have won.And now with Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic and J.J.

Kevin Love shocked a lot of people when he made his season debut for the Minnesota Timberwolves last week. He was supposed to be out a little bit longer but there he was, scoring and rebounding like he hadn’t missed any time at all.
