Covers Preview - Kevin Love makes his much-anticipated return to Minnesota on Saturday when he leads surging Cleveland into a matchup with the Timberwolves. Love played 364 games in six seasons with Minnesota before being traded to the Cavaliers this summer, ending an era marked by contract squabbles and a heavy dose of losing. Love's inability to pull the moribund franchise out of the depths and his desire to start anew in another town did not sit well with most fans in Minneapolis.
