Kevin Love, the subject of locker room discord after missing Sunday's practice due to illness, arrived at Cavaliers shoot-around: "I have always kept my mouth shut and try to do right by the organization and fans." The Cavaliers play the Spurs tonight.

Moments ago, LeBron James arrived for shoot-around at AT+T Center. The Cavaliers, who allowed 148 points in Saturday's home loss to the Thunder among locker room discord, play the Spurs at 8:00P EST tonight.

Doc Rivers, Lou Williams, Blake Griffin all gave credit to Timberwolves for being the better team (off. rebounds, being more aggressive), but all of them acknowledged substandard officiating in different ways.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers wasn't happy about Jeff Teague (16/17 FTs) making more FTs than LA's entire team (15/22 FTs). Rivers said that there were no swear words involved when he and assistants Sam Cassell and Mike Woodson drew technical fouls, and that the officials lost their composure.

Karl Anthony Towns was impressed by Andrew Wiggins' 40 point performance in Los Angeles on Monday night. "It was amazing. I told him, I don't know if I put the voodoo on him, but I told him he was going to get 40 tonight. So he made me look good. I'm happy for him. He was out there, he was playing spirited basketball and he was playing at a high level all night. It just seemed like we were watching, at Staples Center, we were watching young Kobe play out there."
