Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Love is a tricky thing.

Rapid reaction: Wolves 104, Celtics 89 - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Kevin Love scored a game-high 22 points to go along with nine rebounds, three steals, three assists, and a block, while Kevin Martin spearheaded Minnesota's hot 3-point shooting by connecting on 5-of-8 triples as part of a 21-point outburst as the Timberwolves raced away from Boston. Gerald Wallace started and brought a much-needed dose of intensity to the floor, pacing Boston with 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting with three assists, two steals, and two rebounds over 25:11. Jeff Green added 12 points off the pine for the Celtics. For Boston, it's the team's sixth loss in seven games this preseason.
