Timberwolves Vs. Wizards: Kevin Love Grabs 50th Straight Double-Double, Minnesota Leads 72-68 After Third

Kevin Love already has a double-double. No big deal, it's only the 50th straight game he did that. Love has 14 points and 18 rebounds after three quarters and the Timberwolves lead the Wizards by a score of 72-68.

Love's efforts have helped give the Timberwolves a large advantage on the glass, which has helped keep the Wizards struggling offensively. Of course, the Wizards are doing just fine in that regard by themselves, shooting less than 40 percent from the floor.

Andray Blatche, who had 14 points before half, scored just two more in the third quarter. John Wall flashed his unmatched speed in transition, even finishing one break with a left-handed flush. Wall has seven rebounds and seven assists, to boot.

The Wizards have lost seven straight games, and led at halftime tonight. Wall did his best to keep the Wizards in this game, but we'll see if they can pull this one out down the stretch in the fourth.
