Timberwolves Vs. Jazz: Kevin Love Looks To Start New Double-Double Streak

Since the last time the Minnesota Timberwolves played the Utah Jazz, a lot has changed — power forward Kevin Love’s NBA record 53-game double-double streak has ended and the Timberwolves fourth winning-streak of the season (two games!) has also came to a close.

Oddly enough, that all happened in the past five days as the Jazz visited the Wolves just last Friday night.

In that game, the Wolves were once again led by Love as he scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Minnesota to a 122-101 victory over Utah. After the game, Darko Milicic made a joking comment about the Wolves winning the rest of their games by 20 points — something the basketball gods apparently frowned upon — and the Wolves put up just 77 points against the Golden State Warriors in a 23-point loss on Sunday night.

That was all last week, though, and tonight starts a new week for the Timberwolves. And, if last week’s result was any indication, there’s a good chance at least one streak (either Wolves winning or Kevin Love finishing with a double-double) will begin again tonight.
