Even though he finished with 30 points and 14 rebounds, it's safe to say that Kevin Love blew this one for the Minnesota Timberwolves, who had an opportunity to take down the Russell Westbrook-less Oklahoma City Thunder even after allowing a 13-point comeback. 

After Love was inexplicably fouled by Kendrick Perkins, he had three chances at the charity stripe, needing two to tie and three win. 

Clang, clang, intentional miss that didn't hit the rim, and the game was essentially over. 

Love is going to have to do a better job than that if he hopes to escape the "empty stats" reputation.
