Who does Parsons think is NBA MVP so far this season?

When the Rockets host the Timberwolves Saturday night, one Rockets player thinks they'll be facing the league's MVP.

Minnesota forward Kevin Love has been excellent this year. He's in the top five in scoring and rebounding, averaging 24.8 points and 13.5 rebounds per game.

"He draws double teams. They double him, they front him. He can shoot the ball. He rebounds the ball," Rockets forward Chandler Parsons said. "His numbers are unbelievable. He's carrying the Timberwolves right now to a pretty solid record."

Minnesota is 8-6 and is the third highest scoring team in the league. They dominated Brooklyn on Friday night in Minnesota, 111-81, behind Love's 17 points and 16 rebounds.

"He's a complete animal," Parsons said. "He can do everything. He's unbelievable.

"On the offensive glass, just watch him tonight, he never stops. When there are two people boxing him out, he just throws them to the floor."

Love missed all but 18 games last season and has come back strong.

"I worked out with him this summer in LA," Parsons said. "He's in much better shape. He's moving around so well.

"I think it all really starts with Love down low," Parsons continued. "You put those guys around him. K-Mart (Kevin Martin) can score. Corey Brewer gets out in transition. (Nikola) Pekovic can score. (Ricky) Rubio is one of the best passers in the league.

"They can be a great team."
