76ers Vs. Timberwolves: Kevin Love Wins It With Less Than A Second Left

Kevin Love connected on a pair of free throws with less than a second left after being fouled by Andre Iguodala and that allowed the Minnesota Timberwolves to beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night. Love was fouled after he had grabbed a critical defensive rebound at the other end. After a timeout the T-Wolves ran a play for him and he drew a foul to get to the line.

Love finished with 20 points and 15 rebounds for another double-double, while Ricky Rubio had 22 points and five assists. Nikola Pekovic had 17 points on the interior with Love, while J.J. Berea was effective off of the bench with 14 points.

Jrue Holiday led the 76ers with 20 points, but it was Thaddeus Young that put them in front with 40 seconds left, setting up Love's heroics at the end.
