Kevin Love and the United States men's basketball team will play against Nigeria at 4:15 p.m. CT on Thursday.
Love is coming off a 16-point performance in a 110-63 win over Tunisia on Tuesday in which he briefly scared Minnesota Timberwolves fans with an apparent knee injury. It turned out not to be anything serious, as he returned to the game.
The United States is 2-0 in pool play. It won its first game 98-71 against France. Love scored 14 points in 14 minutes.
Nigeria beat Tunisia 60-56 in its first game and lost 72-53 to LIthuania in its second game. The team features NBA journeyman Ike Diogu, who finished last season playing in China.
