No "Love" from visiting Boston

It's halftime at the Target Center. A raucous crowd is confident that their team has earned a blowout victory over visiting Beantown, courtesy of Ricky Rubio and big man Kevin Love. Yet, what appeared to be a demoralizing deficit proved to be the spark that former T-Wolve, Kevin Garnett, and "Celtic Cross" bearer, Rajon Rondo (32 points) needed to fight back until the buzzer sounded, along with a bit of "truth" from BC frontman, Paul Pierce.

When hope was running on empty, Rondo volunteered a 3 here, and a 3 there, even on a bad shooting night by sharpshooter Jason Terry. Along with several mid range jump shots by Rondo, courtesy of the pick and roll game that also helped Garnett, trade acquisition Millsap, free agent pickup Kenyon Martin and rookie Jared Sullinger contribute to the thrilling comeback by Boston's finest. Yet, it was on Minnesota's shoulders the game outcome lied, because a Hail Mary could've sent the game into Overtime, but it rattled out after teasing the rim with a crowd-pleasing embrace.
