Today in Sports History: November 12

Kevin Love became the first player since Charles Barkley (1996) to pull down 30 rebounds in a single game during a 2010 match between the Timberwolves and New York Knicks. Love scored 31 points and 31 rebounds, setting a record for the Timberwolves and becoming the 19th player in NBA history to playa 30-30 game. The same season, Love also set the record for the longest streak for consecutive games recording double figures in points and rebounds since the 1976 ABA–NBA merger. Love played for the Timberwolves from 2008 to 2014 when he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. He won a Gold medal as part of the United States 2010 FIBA World Championship team and played on the undefeated Olympic basketball team during the 2012 Olympics. Love plays Center and Power Forward for the Cavaliers.
