Kevin Love’s Double-Double Streak Comes to an End

David Lee and the Warriors did what no one else in the NBA has been able to do, by stopping in Kevin Love from notching a double-double (the streak ends at 53.) The San Fran Chronicle reports: Lee’s stat line won’t look great: eight points, six rebounds and two assists. But he ended Timberwolves forward Kevin Love’s double-double streak and helped the Warriors win their second straight. Just when it looked as if they might have trouble winning two games the rest of the season, the Warriors enjoyed their largest margin of victory this season, forced a season high in turnovers and held Minnesota to its lowest scoring output of the season. ‘The player guarding Love tonight was not going to be involved in the game on offense,’ coach Keith Smart said. ‘He had one objective: That was to make sure Love didn’t get the glass. David Lee did a great job of sacrificing. I call David Lee a good basketball player. He was locked in to do a job that was necessary.’ Lee didn’t allow Love to shoot his usual trail of three-pointers and made the forward catch every entry pass outside the paint. He was especially physical with Love and seemed to frustrate Minnesota’s best player.”

    What an amazing accomplishment by Kevin Love. Kevin Love was already playing injured so it’s not surprising that his streak ended. It was a good streak and he did it against the best night in and night out. I’m sure he’s quite relieved and eager to start another. Sooner or later, he’ll be a Knick. Make it happen, Walsh.

    I can’t believe the streak came to an end against the Warriors with all the possessions there are due to the fast tempo.

    I swear “Make it happen, Walsh” could be a meme in the coming weeks.
