Kevin Love returned from a broken hand Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets and showed no signs of rust at all, as the All-Star went off for 34 points and 14 rebounds. These two bigs, Aldridge and Love, are arguably the Top 2 power forwards in the league and always have great head-to-head battles. And over the past couple of seasons, it seems that whichever player wins the individual matchup, also propels their team to victory. Love is the superior rebounder and can wreak havoc on the offensive glass but Aldridge is the more gifted athlete who has more size and length, which he needs to use to his advantage in the post. Force the Wolves to decide if they want to send the double team or not. If they do and Portland is hitting from outside, this one could be over early.

So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
