Kevin Love returns early from injury
Timberwolves two-time All Star Kevin Love made his season debut in a stealthy attack launched under the cover of darkness as night fell over Target Center on Wednesday.
Now, as funny as it might seem, a Wolves team that played defense so passionately and moved the ball so freely in building that 5-2 season start and now is .500 must learn again how to play with him.
The Wolves surfed the emotion of Love's unexpected return to a 17-point lead just before halftime against Denver before it all fell apart in a 101-94 loss.
"Little different," said Wolves reserve point guard J.J. Barea, who along with starting center Nikola Pekovic also returned from injury Wednesday. "Trust me, we're happy he's back."
