The NBA on Monday named Kevin Love the Western Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.

Love set a club record with five consecutive games in which he scored 30 or more points.

Here are some notes on Love's stretch of incredible basketball, courtesy of the team's public relations department.



The Wolves lost to the Blazers in demoralizing fashion Sunday. Love, however, had a strong individual game. It was his 10th consecutive game with 25 or more points and 10 or more rebounds. 


After being named Player of the Week for the West, Love posted this to his Instagram and Twitter accounts:


Cheer up, Kevin. The accolade is a good thing. But the outlook for the team is considerably less optimistic now than it was the first time he won the award, in the first week of the season.
