Love's 51 not enough as Durant and Westbrook torch Wolves in double-overtime, 149-140

Kevin Love scored a franchise record 51 points but it wasn’t enough as the Wolves fell to the Thunder in double overtime Friday night, 149-140. J.J. Barea finished 25 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists -- the eighth triple-double in Wolves’ history. All of that didn’t matter because Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook torched Minnesota for a combined 85 points.
