UCLA Alumn Kevin Love Posts First 30-30 NBA Game In 28 Years
Kevin Love grabbed a franchise-record 31 rebounds and scored 31 points, the NBA’s first 30-30 game in 28 years, and the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied from a 21-point, third-quarter deficit to stun the New York Knicks 112-103 on Friday night. Moses Malone was the last player to do it with 32 points and 38 rebounds for Houston against Seattle in 1982.
Love, a third-year player out of UCLA, had 15 rebounds in the 3rd quarter alone as he led his team to a giant comeback. At halftime, Love had just six points on 2-for-8 shooting.
He capped his historic night with a 3-pointer from the top of the key to put him over the 30-point mark and received a standing ovation when he was pulled in the final two minutes.
