Kevin Love had a breakthrough season for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2011-2, even earning a place in the MVP discussion. That success led to him getting a place on the US National team at the Olympics and Wolves fans were eagerly awaiting their star to return and team up with phenom point guard Ricky Rubio and guide the team to postseason success. Unfortunately, Rubio remains sidelined from ACL surgery but Love is still magic on the court.
Here is a sweet highlight from the Wolves' Tuesday preseason game against Israel's vaunted Maccabi Haifa team where Love pulls off a nifty no-look tap pass to Nikola Pekovic for an easy bucket.
Alas, don't get too used to it, during practice on Wednesday Love broke his hand and will now miss the next 6-8 weeks. But hey, we'll always have that play against Maccabi!
