kevin loveMinnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love is known to fill up a stat sheet, but the numbers he put together against the Clippers Sunday night were out of this world.

Love scored 45 points, pulled down 19 rebounds and handed out six assists, making him one of eight players to ever produce a 45/15/5 stat line. The other seven players to put up those kinds of numbers? Michael Jordan, David Robinson, Karl Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon, Chris Webber, Vince Carter (!) and LeBron James, in a playoff game.

Check out the highlights from his big night:

If Love can continue to average 25 points, 14 rebounds and four assists over the course of the season, he’ll join Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Elgin Baylor as the only players to do it in NBA history. That’s some pretty elite company.

Minnesota lost in overtime 120-116, but that shouldn’t take away from how incredible a night — or season — that Love is putting together individually.
