NBA Power Rankings: Fox Sports Keeps Timberwolves Low

Fox Sports' NBA Power Rankings are hot off the press, and just like everyone else, they place the Timberwolves down towards the bottom of the league, putting them at number 27.

They take the easy way out with their commentary, telling people something they already know if they've been reading SB Nation Minnesota on a regular basis.

Bravo, Kevin Love. His 51st straight double-double came Monday night against the Mavs and tied Moses Malone in 1978-79 for the longest streak since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976. Malone had his streak over two seasons, so Love's is the longest single-season streak. Not much else to say about the Wolves.

Yeah, that Kevin Love guy. . .he's very good at basketball, isn't he?

Then again, the Fox Sports folks are right, as sad as that is. All they need is Love, because that's really all the Wolves have at this point. Hopefully that will change in the near future. . .but it won't happen this year.
