Kevin Love Is Doubtful To Play When Timberwolves Face Nuggets On Saturday

Kevin Love is doubtful to play tonight due to the nagging injury to his groin and the Denver Nuggets have looked pretty outstanding since trading All-Star Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks earlier this season so tonight's Minnesota Timberwolves game in Denver probably isn't one that the Wolves faithful will feel the need to watch.

But if the loyal fans do decide to watch as the Wolves try to not lose their thirteenth game in a row, well, good luck because even Minnesota head coach Kurt Rambis feels bad for the Timberwolves.

"I feel bad for our guys," Rambis said following Wednesday's 108-98 home loss to Phoenix. "It's very hard emotionally on the players to go through a season like this."

It's also typically very hard for the fans to go through a season like this as the Wolves currently have the worst record in the NBA. Yes, worse than the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that set the NBA record for the longest losing streak in in the history of the league.

Never fear, however, as Canis Hoopus still has a positive outlook on how everything will go down when the Wolves face the Nuggets -- specifically in the match-up between Michael Beasley and Danilo Gallinari:

Michael Beasley vs. Danilo Gallinari

Do you know what roosters do? They crow when the sun comes up and go to bed when the sun goes down (at least if the cartoons have it right, and lets face it, they generally do). Well, do they play many day games in the NBA? I didn't think so. By the time they tip off tonight, most roosters are already going to be in bed. This is why Gallo always looks so sleepy-eyed on the basketball court.

Michael Beasley isn't a rooster. He's a vampire. Not like those teeny-bopper vampires in movies like Twilight or Wuthering Bites. Like the ones in that movie Blade. Except, not the guy who went to jail for tax evasion. Or the one who dated Reese WItherspoon. The point is, he never sleeps, okay?

Beasley wins.

Winner: Michael Beasley

So I guess watch that match-up and see how Beasley looks more awake than Gallinari.
