Kevin Love OK with his playing time

66

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis and Kevin Love say they're on the same page about the power forward's playing time. Love was in the game for less than 9 minutes [in the second half] in Wednesday's season opener, and Rambis pinned it on a preference for backup Anthony Tolliver's energy and defense. Love complained about his role last season and left the locker room Wednesday without speaking to the media, but after practice Thursday he said he and Rambis are fine and that any speculation about a rift has been blown out of proportion. Rambis said he spoke to Love in the morning to make clear he had no "hidden agenda" or "loss of faith" in Love. Rambis says he'll play players who are "playing the best and give us the most at that particular time." From ESPN
