After the Kings game Wednesday night, Kevin Love didn't talk to reporters. Since he didn't say anything, we're left to speculate that he was miffed over not playing the last eight minutes in a tight game. Hence the not talking.
But Thursday, he talked and addressed the perceived hiccup with coach Kurt Rambis.
"Defensively, we had lapses the whole game," Love told the Pioneer Press. "In that situation, Anthony (Tolliver) was playing great down the stretch. You have to give credit to him and the rest of the guys on the floor."
"I talked to Kurt," Love added. "I'm fine with it. I don't want to use this as a telling tale for the whole season. I know I forced and rushed a lot of shots. We all were trying to play great because it was opening night, but it didn't work out for a lot of us."
Love said the right things here, but let's see how he feels in late January when he's averaging just 25 minutes a game. He might not be so fine with it then.
