Did you expect someone else?
Kevin Love continues to be one of the most statistically impressive offensive players in recent NBA history. He represents the glimmering hope that the Minnesota Timberwolves possess and is every statistician's favorite big man.
Thus far, Love is averaging 26.5 points, 12.7 rebounds and 4.2 assists while shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc.
Love also leads the league with 54 double-doubles. That number is even more impressive when you weigh the fact that Andre Drummond is second with 46—a full eight less.
Unfortunately, it's a familiar narrative for Love: outstanding individual statistics and an unlikely shot at the postseason.
With Minnesota 5.5 games out of the No. 8 seed, this looks like nothing more than another year of wasted ability. The T-Wolves just can't turn the corner as a postseason team, although a record above .500 is a step in the right direction.
If there is one player on the roster who'd be void of blame, however, Love would be the closest one to it.
