NBA Rumors: Tyson Chandler says Kevin Love can’t play defense


The New York Knicks got themselves back in the win column on Wednesday night thanks to a 118-106 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The 118 points was a pretty impressive total given it was just a regulation game, though Knicks center Tyson Chandler seems to know why the team had such success scoring the rock – Kevin Love. Or should I say, Kevin Love’s lack of defense.

Chandler did a quick hitting interview with MSG television before making his way towards the locker room at halftime and was pressed on how he could take advantage of the size difference.

At first Chandler was complimentary, suggesting that Love can stretch the floor – but he was then asked again specifically about this mismatch on the other side of the floor. Chandler’s response was pretty hilarious, suggesting that he’s just going to go at him because he can’t play defense.

He may have had a point as Chandler, who averages nine points per game, scored 15 on 6 of 8 shooting.
