Matchup to Watch
Kevin Love vs. Josh McRoberts: Two of the more versatile power forwards in the NBA, each plays all over the court. McRoberts has to keep Love from having a monster night on the boards.

has the bulk and strength to match up physically with Bobcats starAl Jefferson.
But will he fall for all of Big Al’s fakes and counters?

• Small forwardCorey Brewer
has 61 dunks this season, more than twice as many as any other Timberwolf.
