1 & Done Kevin Love... and Loving it... all the way to the bank


The White Meat wasn’t cold:  Bruin Star Kevin Love deep fries an All-Time NBA Record by heating up and stuffing in THIRTY-FOUR Points in the FIRST QUARTER — the rest was just gravy — as his Cavs carve up the Blazers, 137-125

So delicious, I could just GOBBLE it up:  Another record-setting performance by an all-time Bruin Great.  As Bruin Freshman Lonzo Ball is taking the Country by storm, and Bruin Russell Westbrook is dominating the NBA with Triple-Double intensity on his way to a potential MVP Award, Russell’s former Bruin Teammate Kevin Love stole all the headlines in the Thanksgiving Day newspaper Sports Pages.  On Wednesday, Kevin broke the All-Time League Record for Points in a First Quarter, pouring in 34.  Kevin personally outscored the entire Portland team 34-31 in the quarter, as he led Cleveland to a 46-31 lead going into the 2nd quarter.  The Cavaliers went on to win 137-125.

Love hit his first 7 shots of the game, and made 11 field goals in the period, including EIGHT three-pointers.  His 34 Points in the quarter set a Franchise Record for Cleveland, for ANY quarter.  That means even LeBron never scored that many in a quarter for the Cavs, and he’s had a lot more opportunities.  Love has been with the organization for only a few years.  Love fell only 3 points short of the NBA Record for Points in ANY quarter.  That record was set last year, by Klay Thompson, who coincidentally comes from the same place Love does.  Not just the Pac-12, but the same area in Oregon (Lake Oswego), before college. And, they were childhood friends.

Love scored only 6 more Points the rest of the game, but his team won, and his name is entered into the Record Book.  The way it’s going, Westbrook may join him in that Record Book before this season is over.  And Lonzo Ball may set some records of his own, in Westwood this year.  Westbrook and Ball are both threats to complete Triple-Doubles every time they lace ’em up.

Today’s Triple-Doubles will be the seconds you have of Turkey, Stuffing, and Gravy, or maybe Cranberry Sauce, Candied Yams and Pie.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  And here are 46 more photos of the UCLA Spirit Squad, in action on Saturday on the sidelines.  These are from the 400’s (i.e. pics #400-#499) so I apologize for the lack of diversity — It’s mostly the same girls.  But the next batch will be the 500’s, and then the 600’s, so we will progress to different groups of girls.  I’m not playing favorites, I’m just going in order.  🙂
