Kevin Love is back in town, with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers -- winners of five consecutive games and 11 of their last 13 -- on their annual lone visit to Target Center.
They play tonight a Timberwolves team that has lost eight of its last nine.
This is his second time back since that August 2014 trade sent him to Cleveland and brought Andrew Wiggins in a three-team deal that involved four players and a first-round draft pick.
"Definitely different," Love said about his second time back. "It's like a home away from home, just a lot more calmed down: Not as many ticket requests, that sort of thing. It'll always be fun to play here...I don't think it'll be like any other game. It'll always be different. A lot of years spent here, a lot of memories, a lot of great relationships. So definitely a different feel to the game, but you have to try to make it like any other game."
Love arrived to Target Center early and worked with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on three-man game stuff before shootaround, then met with the media.
Here's some video of part of that pre-shoot session with the media
