MINNEAPOLIS - The boos were raining down on Kevin Love and his 3-pointer wasnt falling in the building he used to call home. Charlie Coyle Jersey .On nights like this in his six years in Minnesota, Love had no one to turn to for help. In Cleveland, he has LeBron James, and the best player in the world wasnt about to let his new teammate down on an emotional night.James scored 16 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter to win a stirring duel with rookie Andrew Wiggins, leading the Cavaliers to a 106-90 victory over the Timberwolves in Loves first game back in Minnesota since he was traded.It was all our responsibilities as his teammates and his brothers to protect him tonight, James said. Throughout anything, it was the uncertainty. He didnt know what to expect. He could lean on us throughout everything that happened today and for us we just had to go out there and help him get a win.Love finished with 14 points on 6-for-14 shooting and 17 rebounds. But he was just 1 for 5 on 3-pointers and was outshined by Wiggins, the headliner in the three-team deal that got Love out of Minnesota.Wiggins had 33 points and four steals for the Timberwolves (8-39), who gave Love and the Cavaliers all they could handle in front of a standing-room-only crowd.I love a big stage, Wiggins said. I love playing in the spotlight. A lot of fans. Big crowd.James kicked things into gear in the final nine minutes. He scored 13 straight for the Cavs, who have won 10 straight to improve to 29-20.Thaddeus Young scored 19 and Nikola Pekovic had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Timberwolves, but they were just 3-for-19 in the fourth quarter.Trailing by five early in the fourth, James responded by thundering to the rim for a dunk, hitting a 3-pointer, three free throws and another 3 over Wiggins outstretched hand to give the Cavs a 94-87 lead with five minutes to play.Love was traded to Cleveland in the blockbuster deal of the summer, bringing Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Bennett and Young to Minnesota. Love made three All-Star teams as a Timberwolves forward, but they never made the playoffs. And he drew the fans hire by requesting a trade at the end of last season.Love was booed throughout the game, except for during a brief video tribute in the first quarter highlighting his six seasons in Minnesota.He exchanged hugs with Wolves owner Glen Taylor and his wife, Becky, and laughs with Pekovic and Wolves coach Flip Saunders during the game. He focused on those moments more than the booing when asked after the game.Truth be told, I thought it was a pretty good reception, especially from people with familiar faces, Love said.When the video was over, all the good will went out the window. Every touch of the ball was booed. Every missed shot was cheered as loudly as a dunk by Wiggins, who gave James everything he had. That included out-running him to a loose ball and throwing down a dunk to get a rare sellout crowd roaring.He showed tonight that hes got potential, that hes going to be a superstar in this league, Saunders said. He rises to the moment. Hes not afraid of the moment.TIP-INSCavaliers: Earlier in the week, the Timberwolves produced a tongue-in-cheek video touting the return of Mike Miller, who spent one season in Minnesota as a jab at Loves comeback. Every time I play somewhere I feel a connection, Miller said. ... Kyrie Irving had a quiet night with 12 points on 4-for-16 shooting.Timberwolves: Ricky Rubio plans to play on Monday against Dallas, ending a 43-game absence with an injured left ankle. ... Flip Saunders said F Shabazz Muhammad (oblique) was making some progress in his rehab, but the team wouldnt have a clear timeline for his return until next week. ... The 19-year-old Wiggins became the first teenager to score at least 23 points in a half since Irving did it in 2012.MORE INJURIESInjuries to Mo Williams (hip) and Zach LaVine (ankle) left the Wolves with just one healthy point guard for the game in Lorenzo Brown, who just signed a 10-day contract on Wednesday. Brown had one point and nine assists and played almost the entire game.UP NEXTCavaliers: Host Philadelphia on Monday.Timberwolves: Visit Dallas on Monday. Tuukka Rask Bruins Jersey . 3 seed Phillip Kohlschreiber from Germany. Defending champion Marin Cilic also reached the semifinals -- his fourth in Zagreb -- defeating fellow Croat Ivan Dodig. German qualifier Bjorn Phau beat Dudi Sela of Israel to reach his first semifinals in nearly five years. Danton Heinen Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Bills will head into the regular season short on experience at quarterback after trimming the roster on Friday. http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/zdeno-chara-hockey-jersey/ . -- Andrew Wiggins is from Canada, Wayne Selden from Massachusetts and Joel Embiid from the African nation of Cameroon.Jamie Redknapp credits Leicesters unsung heroes along the back four for their incredible achievement of winning the Premier League title. Leicester have smashed numerous records to win their first Premier League title with a starting XI that cost just £23m to assemble.The Foxes have lost just three games this season with a defence consisting of Christian Fuchs, Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan and Robert Huth. In the backline, only Huth has won a Premier League title before. Combined, the defence have played 2,242 minutes together and Redknapp believes their achievements, considering their previous clubs and playing backgrounds, cannot be understated. Leicesters backbone We pick out five unsung heroes among Leicester Citys Premier League title-winning squad. To lose three games in a season is astonishing, he told Sky Sports News HQ.So much credit has gone to Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, but the back four deserves a lot of credit.Ive been so impressed with Kasper Schmeichel in goal as well. Danny Simpson was at QPR where he didnt look great, to be honest. He looked like he would struggle to get a club and ended up at Leicester. Leicester City players celebrated winning the Premier League title during a training session Fuchs has been a great signing as well, and Robert Huth has been immense for them - £3m from Stoke, what a signing.He adds: Wes Morgan, Id love to know how many managers looked at Morgan and thought Is he cut out for the Premier League? Now hes a title winner. Just a fantastic story.Despite Redknapps praise of Leicesters season, the former England midfielder is in agreement with manager Claudio Ranieri that they wont win the title again. However, he has described the unbelievable achievement as being a bigger upset than Greece winning Euro 2004. Redknaapp says Leicester have played better in winning the Premier League than Greece did when they won Euro 2004 I dont think it will be achieved again, he said. David Pastrnak Jersey. #160;We really have seen something so special this season. You go through the history and you think how Greece winning the European Championships was a one-off. Greece won the Euros by keeping clean sheets and winning 1-0, but Leicester have played great football as well.Redknapp also praises the collective effort of the team and feels Leicesters achievement could result in a shift in power in the Premier League.Theyve had a little bit of genius with the likes of Mahrez and Vardy and Kante has been one of the signings of the season, but I dont think itll ever happen again, he said. Jamie Redknapp was trying to give his analysis on Leicester winning the title before two friends decided to distract him There has been a slight change in the guard. West Ham have also had a great season and Tottenham have come to the front now so Ill be interested to see how they push on next season.But Leicester have done something completely unthinkable and its been an absolute joy.
