Timberwolves-Cavaliers Preview

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - When the Minnesota Timberwolves walk into Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday night to face the Cleveland Cavaliers, they will be staring their former franchise player right in the face for the first time since he was traded last summer.

Kevin Love has moved on after six frustrating seasons in Minnesota, and Timberwolves president and coach Flip Saunders said he harbors no grudges against him for asking to be traded. But Saunders can't say the same for Timberwolves fans.

"Minnesota people are pretty loyal. You turn on Minnesota, they don't forgive you," Saunders said after practice Monday. "So I think people probably appreciated him while he was here. But you leave under the terms that he did, just the way Minnesota people are, they're not pretty forgiving along those lines."
