Timberwolves Vs. Grizzlies: Kevin Love, Minnesota Face Memphis On Tuesday

The Timberwolves go for back-to-back wins for the first time since Ricky Rubio went down.


The Minnesota Timberwolves will head to Memphis on Tuesday to take on the Grizzlies.

Kevin Love looks to continue a red-hot four-game stretch during which he's averaged 33.5 points and 15.8 rebounds. Love had 51 and 14 Friday in a 149-140 loss to Oklahoma City, and he followed that up with a cool 30 and 21 in a 117-100 home win against Denver on Sunday.

Alas, Love's play hasn't been translating to wins -- the Wolves are 2-2 over their last four and 3-7 over the last 10, a stretch that dates back to Ricky Rubio's season-ending knee injury.

Memphis isn't the best medicine for a slump. Minnesota is just 1-10 versus Memphis in the teams' last 11 meetings. Memphis is 2-0 versus Minnesota this season, winning by a combined nine points.

This is the Grizzlies' first home game in five contests. They'll follow it up with three more road games.
