Kevin Love PF/C MIN 15 Hrs
Kevin Love returned from his personal absence to hit 6-of-15 shots, 10-of-10 free throws and four 3-pointers on his way to 26 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists in a blowout win over the Pistons.
This was Love's sixth game of the season in which he racked up at least 25 points and 15 rebounds, while the rest of the league has done so just 10 times combined. He missed Saturday's game for his grandmother's funeral, but outside of that DNP, there's been very little not to love about his game this season.

Dante Cunningham and Luc Mbah a Moute figure to pick up the most playing time if Love hasn't rejoined the team.
