Kevin Love Named All-NBA 2nd Team
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Wednesday that forward Kevin Love was selected to the All-NBA Second Team.
It’s the second time that Love, who just finished his sixth NBA season, has been named to the All-NBA Second Team. He was also selected in 2011-12. Love became the first player since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976 to average at least 26 points, 12 rebounds and four assists per game.
He averaged a franchise-record 26.1 points per game to go along with 12.5 rebounds per game. He finished the season fourth in scoring and third in rebounding. Love also had three triple-doubles on the season.
He had a streak of 11 straight games where he averaged at least 25 points and 10 rebounds, the longest streak in the league since 2001. That streak included six straight games of at least 30 points. Love was joined on this year’s All-Second Team by Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard, Stephen Curry and Tony Parker.
Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Joakim Noah, James Harden and Chris Paul were selected All-NBA First Team.
Sam Cassell and Kevin Garnett also earned All-NBA Second Team honors while with the Timberwolves.
