Stat Line of the Night — 12/19/2012 — Paul Pierce
Stat Line of the Night — 12/20/2012 — Kevin Love
Beating the Oklahoma City Thunder hasn’t been an easy feat to accomplish for NBA teams as of late, as Kevin Durant and company entered last night with their 12-game winning still intact. But the Minnesota Timberwolves were up to the task on Thursday, as they put an end to the Thunder’s winning streak thanks to their 99-93 victory over the Western Conference leaders.
Leading the way for the T-Wolves was none other than Kevin Love, who had a team-high 28 points and 11 rebounds to go along with seven assists and two blocks.
Despite playing in only 14 games thus far this season, Love has been quickly moving up the NBA’s list of double-double leaders. He recorded his eleventh last night, which moves him into 11th in the league, and earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, December 20, 2012.
