According to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, Love worked on his three-point shooting on Tuesday after practice. Just like in the three-point contest he moved from station to station (rack to rack) as the clock ran. He went through the 'drill' five times and finished with: 16pts, then 19, 18, 12 and finally 21!
Love has shot 122 three-point attempts thus far this season and has made 44 of those. Giving him a three-point shooting percentage of 36% this season.
