Timberwolves forward Kevin Love's no-look, tip pass to Nikola Pekovic during the Tuesday night, Oct. 16, exhibition game against Maccabi Haifa was selected as NBA.com's "Play of the Night" for Tuesday's NBA games.
The play occurred with 4:12 left in the first quarter of the Timberwolves' 114-81 win at Target Center over Maccabi Haifa, a professional team from Israel. Andrei Kirilenko threw a long pass down court to Love, who tipped the ball behind his head to Pekovic. Pekovic completed the fast break with a two-handed slam dunk. A link to the video is below.
The Timberwolves play their next exhibition game Friday night, Oct. 19, in Chicago against the Bulls at United Center.
