VIDEO: Kevin Love Beats Clippers With Three-Pointer At Buzzer

The Minnesota Timberwolves made all of the big plays down the stretch to earn a 101-98 comeback win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Ricky Rubio was sensational making plays for himself and teammates even if he did have trouble knocking down shots.

When Minnesota needed it most, Rubio came through with a big three-pointer to tie the score with just 20 seconds left to play in the game. But to put the game away, forward Kevin Love made an even bigger shot, popping out behind the arc, taking the pass from Luke Ridnour, setting his feet and then splashing the game-winner. With his arms outstretched celebrating the make, you can tell Love had no doubt that the ball was going in from the time it left his hands.
