Pacers Big Win Starts Rivalry With Wolves; Granger & Love Have Fued
Kevin Love made his feelings for the Indiana Pacers clear after the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 109-99 loss on Wednesday night at Target Center.
“I’ve said all along,” Love said, “I don’t like the Pacers.”
Love and Pacers forward Danny Granger almost came to blows with 23.7 seconds remaining the third quarter after Love was whistled for a foul and Granger approached him aggressively.
“(They think) they are so tough,” Love said. “They take those pills and they got all that toughness. I don’t know where that comes from. They all think they are tough guys. I just don’t know where that comes from. It just blows my mind.”
“I guarantee the next time we play them, it will be just as physical,” he said.
