Weekend Wonder: Kevin Love was huge this weekend, averaging 31 points, 17 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.5 threes and 1.5 turnovers in two games.  He shot 55 percent from the field and 81 percent from the line, and notched 43 points and 17 rebounds on Sunday. He’s double-doubled in every game since Nov. 22. Though Love continues to lack steals and blocks, he continues to play like a top 10 player.
