Kevin Love stuns Knicks, and himself, with 31 points and 31 rebounds
When Moses Malone, then playing for Houston, notched an NBA-record 30 points and 30 rebounds in a 1982 game against Seattle, Kevin Love hadn't even been born.
Fast forward to Minneapolis last night, where Love found the most astonishing groove, taking credit for 31 points and 31 rebounds to lead the Timberwolves in a come-from-21-behind win over the Knicks, 112-103.
Too bad it was even on TV here on home turf.
"I don't even know what to say to be honest with you," he told reporters after the game.
"I don't even know what to say," added coach Kurt Rambis.
We don't even know to say, either. Except, for the sake of the promising but struggling team, more Love, please.
