09:24 AM ET 03.20 | What were the odds of Kevin Love's double- double streak ending at 53 Sunday with a reeking, 100-77, thud -- six points, a dozen rebounds in 33 minutes -- against an escort service like the pedal-to-the-metal Warriors? Can Kurt Rambis and the Timberwolves' ball handling play-callers rationally explain how Love merely managed to get six shots -- making one and 4-of-6 free throws? you would presume Rambis possesses the presence of mind and the coaching aptitude to get Love a few more field goal attempts, if not a couple more baskets.

I watched the game. Blame for the streak ending goes in this order - 1) K.Love. He played lousy. 2) The Warriors. They were aggressive in double and triple teams. 3) The referees. Love was fouled just about every time he touched the ball and for some reason the refs looked the other way that night. 4) Rambis & teammates. He is a lousy coach for a lousy team. No adjustements were made and no other players stepped up when ALL the defensive attention was pouring down on Love.

It's a Peter Vescey article. Take it for what it's worth, lol.

I agree w/ your assessment... Rambis did try so much to get him points but he knows it wasn't working out. It was like Jevale McGee's triple double. Wizard's tried so much to get him his points and finally got it by accident...

I've seen Jevale on offense...

... any points he obtains are by accident lol
