NBA schedule: Kevin Love, Timberwolves host Bucks on Friday night

Craig Mitchelldyer-US PRESSWIRE

Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves (6-8) host Brandon Jennings and the Milwaukee Bucks (7-6) on Friday night at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have gone 1-4 since Kevin Love returned to the lineup, but they will get a chance ot improve that mark on Friday night when they host the plucky Milwaukee Bucks (7 p.m. CT, WFTC). Love has produced 23.0 points and 15.6 points per games since returning from his hand injury, but the Bucks present an interesting challenge.

Milwaukee employs an army of lanky big men -- Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh, John Henson and Samuel Dalembert -- that could bother Love's outside shot. Sanders is a particularly effective defender when it comes to bothering jump shots, while Udoh is a technically sound stopper who works hard to box his man after a shot is released.

After the Wolves finish up with the Bucks, they will play six of their next 10 games on the road, including matchups against the Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics, New Orleans Hornets, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat and New York Knicks.
