Kevin Love Extends Double-Double Streak To 52 Games, Sets Modern Record

There were two impressive feats in Wednesday night's Minnesota-Indiana game.

First, the Timberwolves won the game. Second, Kevin Love set the new modern-era consecutive double-double streak record with his 52nd straight. He finished the game with 16 points and 21 rebounds.

In savvy Love fashion, he got the double-double in the first half. Not bad considering he ended the first quarter with one point and six rebounds. Love set the record with a free-throw at the 6:51 mark of the 2nd quarter. The Target Center went to their feet to celebrate the only thing worth celebrating this season in Minneapolis:

Kev took the Twitter after the game to express his appreciation.

Head on over to Canis Hoopus where the appreciation continues.

Love's record beat that of Moses Malone, who ran off 51 straight double-doubles with the Sixers. Wilt Chamberlain actually owns the all-time record with 227. But obviously the NBA was much, much different in Wilt's day, where teams would take 100 shots a game.
