Kevin Love-less Timberwolves Host Steve Nash And The Suns Tonight

The Minnesota Timberwolves literally have nothing left to play for this season aside from maybe trying to end their current 11-game losing streak so I can’t blame them for holding Kevin Love out, but tonight’s game against Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns won’t be an easy game to watch.

Love is out with the lingering groin injury that’s caused him to miss the last few games, more than likely leaving Michael Beasley to start at power forward for the third straight game. Last game out, Beasley put forth a nice all-around effort with 20 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds, but he made just seven of his 17 attempts from the field and was unable to hit a game-winning three-pointer as time expired.

For the Suns, Steve Nash will be looking to post the second-straight 20+ assist performance against the Wolves in as many nights after Deron Williams had a career-high 21 in last night’s game against the Nets. When the Wolves visited Phoenix earlier this season, Nash had 19 dimes in a 128-122 Suns victory.

After tonight’s game, the Wolves only have three games left in the season — including a rematch of tonight’s game on Monday night in Phoenix.
