With the Bobcats threatening to actually win a game, Kevin Love went off for 14 in the fourth, finishing with 40 points for yet another individual night that had fantasy owners drooling, lifting the Timberwolves to a 88-83 win. In the month of March, Love is now averaging over 31 points a game. When was the last time we saw that from someone who wasn’t named Kobe, LeBron or KD? Even though he hasn’t done anything in the playoffs yet, and even though he’s not lock-down on defense, he has to be the best power forward in the league. If Ricky Rubio was still around, we’d bet the ‘Wolves would be going for the playoffs and Love would be making an MVP push … No one knows what to make of Denver. One night they look like a second round playoff team. The next, they’re losing to Toronto. The Raptors held home court last night in their 105-96 win over the Nuggets as Andrea Bargnani dropped 26 … Jose Calderon, we had to feel for ya. He got caught in one of those two-on-one situations where he couldn’t really get out of the way and ended up getting JaVale McGee‘s nuts full-on in his face. McGee jumped from the circle and smashed all over Toronto’s point guard … In case you forgot about Tayshaun Prince, he still has a little game. He blew up for 29 points as Detroit continued Cleveland’s misery, 87-75 … Can we please drop this whole Kentucky vs. the NBA argument. We’re not sure we can make it any clearer. They would have NO CHANCE again an NBA team. What is so hard to figure out? They have four NBA players on their entire team. NBA teams have 12 NBA players. After we wrote on it yesterday afternoon, we saw the guys on PTI debate it (at least Wilbon had his smart cap on) and then heard the Raptor announcers discussing it during the game last night … And just as everyone anticipated, Shabazz Muhammad won the MVP of the McDonald’s All-American Game after scoring 15 points in the West’s 106-102 win … Kyle Anderson from St. Anthony’s looks like he’ll be ready to put in some serious work next year at UCLA. He’s not real athletic, but the boy is smooth and plays at his own pace. Besides, UCLA needs any help they can get so we’re pretty sure he’ll get minutes no matter what … We’re out like NBA vs. NCAA debates.
