Love's 13 points can't help West win NBA All-Star Game


It wasn't the most stat-stuffing performance Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has ever had, but with the talent on the floor at the NBA All-Star Game, that shouldn't come as a massive surprise.

Love started at power forward for the Western Conference Sunday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-11 from the field while also grabbing nine rebounds.

Here's how Love's performance stacks up against his other two outings in the All-Star Game:

Despite his contribution in 33 minutes on the floor, the West lost to the East 163-155. Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin shot a combined 50 times from the field, each scoring 38 points, while Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving led the East with 31 points and 14 assists, and was named MVP of the game.

Amongst the slew of records the game broke, Griffin set the new mark for field goals made in an All-Star Game with 19, Carmelo Anthony of the Knicks set the three-point field goal mark by hitting eight, and the game was the highest scoring in showcase history, 318 points between the two teams and 163 for the East both setting new highs.

Love's 13 points and nine rebounds concludes his All-Star weekend, which also saw him eliminated in the first round of the three-point shootout Saturday.
