In a commercial for the NBA All-Star Game, Love is blindfolded and is asked to hit 3-pointers from the top of the key. Love really was blindfolded and hit the three shots consecutively.

“It was a lot of fun,” Love said afterwards. “They put me out there. I was used to the rack being there with the balls from being in 3-point competitions—I’ve done those a few times— but they put the blindfold on me and that was a little different. I kind of had to make it up on the spot.”

You can watch Love and the Wolves tonight as they take on the Memphis Grizzles at Target Center starting at 7:00. You can watch it on Fox Sports North or listen at WCCO 830 AM.
