Video: Wolves have some fun with the return of Kevin Love


Kevin Love returns to Target Center on Saturday when the Timberwolves host the Cavaliers. It'll mark Love's first game back in Minnesota since being traded for Andrew Wiggins last offseason.

The Timberwolves Entertainment Network took advantage of the highly-anticipated game by creating a video called, "#TheReturn." Watch it here.

The genius part about the video is that the Wolves don't recognize Love – at all – as the player all the drama is being built around. Instead, they use Mike Miller, who played for Minnesota for one season (2008-09).

Miller has played at Target Center since leaving the Wolves, but that's the point of the video. It's a smart, funny preview for Saturday's "big" game.

Love, by the way, is averaging 17.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game with the Cavs.
