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.
