Minnesota's Love, USA Earn Close Exhibition Win

July 22, 2012 Updated Jul 22, 2012 at 8:01 PM CST

Barcelona, Spain (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love and the United States stayed undefeated in exhibition play on Sunday, beating Argentina by an 86-80 final score.

Love didn't score in the winning effort, but he did pull down two rebounds and tally an assist for the Americans.

The team wraps up exhibition play on July 24 against Spain and then will open up play in the 2012 London Olympics on July 29 against France.

This will mark Love's first appearance at the Olympics, but he did win a gold medal for the United States in the 2010 World Championships.
