Kevin Love on loss to Celtics: ‘[Expletive] happens’

Count Kevin Love [3] among those not overly impressed by the Celtics [4]‘ 12-14 start.

“We beat that team the large majority of the times we play,” said Love, who recorded 27 points and 14 assists against a soft interior Boston defense, “but, like they say, [expletive] happens.”

Asked if he felt his T-Wolves gifted the Celtics a victory, Love added, “Big time. Big time.”

The Timberwolves [5] (12-13) did hand the Celtics a beating in their first meeting, a 106-88 decision in Minnesota last month. Prior to this season, however, the two-time NBA All-Star owned a 1-10 record in his career against the C’s, but this is a different Celtics team under a different Celtics coach — a younger roster that plays equally as hard, even if Love isn’t prepared to give them a whole lot of credit just yet.

“We thought we could’ve beat that team,” said Love. “They executed down the stretch, but more than anything we beat ourselves.”
