The power forward led the team with 31 points and 17 rebounds during the 120-115 overtime win against the Orlando Magic.
The 25-year-old told reporters: "Yeah, I mean every shot tonight felt good but only about half of them went in, but we were fortunate to make a great play. Ricky [Rubio] made a great pass, and I just let it fly.
"We're just happy to get first game in general, win or lose, obviously better to win, out of the way so now we can just go out there and hopefully play but we know that Friday night it's hard, especially against a team like Oklahoma City. It's going to be an electric crowd."
Love missed the majority of last season with a broken hand.
