Since Ricky Rubio tore his ACL on March 9, Kevin Love has been the lifeblood of the Minnesota Timberwolves. In the past five games, Love has been on an absolutely monstrous tear, putting up games of 36 and 16, 51 and 14, 30 and 21, and now tonight against the Bobcats, he finished with 40 and 19. At 25-27, the Wolves are very much in the West playoff hunt, and Love is doing everything in his power to get them there. He has 19 games this season with at least 30 points (3 with at least 40), has grabbed double-digit rebounds in 44 of 48 games he's played in, and is shooting 38 percent from three-point land. We can't imagine what he'd do in his first playoff appearance.
