So, the NBA has suspended Timberwolves forward Kevin Love for two games for stomping on Rockets forward Luis Scola’s face, reports Jerry Zgoda. Love will be out for tomorrow night’s tilt against Sacramento and Thursday at Memphis.
This stings: all of a sudden, the Kings look like a formidable opponent. Cousins might end up with 30 rebounds instead of just 15. And against Memphis, we’lll only have The Godfather to bang with Marc Gasol. Love’s absence is always felt the most against teams with physical bigs. Unfortunately, the Kings and the Grizz both qualify.
But Love’s suspension also makes things a bit more interesting.
How will Rick Adelman adjust? His team will have a gaping hole in its regular lineup, and there are plenty of suitors for Love’s minutes. We’ve got our own ideas about how we’d proceed, but we want to hear yours.
