Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love had the game of his live against Oklahoma City. The power forward/center scored a franchise record 51-points against the Thunder, but still lost in double overtime.
From Boston Herald:
Pity the poor fools who watched lousy NCAA tournament basketball instead Friday night.
All they missed televised live from Chesapeake Energy Arena instead was Oklahoma City’s 149-140 double-overtime victory over the Timberwolves in which Kevin Love scored a franchise-record 51 points and J.J. Barea delivered the team’s first triple-double since Kevin Garnett did it in 2007. They still somehow flew home after 13 days on the road losers for the fifth time in the trip’s seven games.
Kevin Love might be the best power forward AND center in the NBA.

Kevin Love passed Kevin Garnett's franchise record in points! Tonight Garnett will call him with his number blocked and yell obscenities.
