Kevin Love Sets Timberwolves Franchise Double-Double Record

New, 1 comment

With his 20-point, 14-rebound performance in the Timberwolves' 112-108 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, Kevin Love officially set a Timberwolves record for the most consecutive double-doubles recorded with 38. The previous record was 37, held by Kevin Garnett.

Love is now within serious striking distance of the NBA's all-time record for consecutive double-doubles. That number is 44, and the mark is currently held by NBA legend Moses Malone, who set the mark during the 1982-83 NBA season.

So, if Love can run off a double-double in each of his next seven games, he will officially set an NBA record. Here's how Love has fared this season against the next seven teams on the Timberwolves' schedule.

The potential record-breaking game against the Warriors is a home game, scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 27 at the Target Center. I'll go out on a limb and assume that plenty of good tickets are still available.
