Game Preview

Miami Heat forward Kevin Love put it best. “We’re chasing excellence,” he said.

Love was referring to Miami’s championship quest but he could have also been referring to Miami’s game Monday night against the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves, who have the best record in the Western Conference at 19-5.

That’s who the Heat will be chasing on Monday. The Timberwolves, 18-3 since a sluggish start, have not lost consecutive games all season, and they are coming off a 127-109 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.
