Only three players over the last 30 NBA seasons have registered 200-plus points and 120-plus rebounds in first eight games to start a season, Moses Malone (twice), Shaq, and now Kevin Love has done it for the second time in his career.
Kevin Love accomplished this same feat in 2011-2012, and pretty amazing considering how much Love's skill set differs from Moses and Shaq. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
