F - CLE
Kevin Love racked up 30 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3PT, 4-4 FT), 14 boards, three assists, two steals, and three turnovers in Wednesday night's victory over the Celtics.
Love took Monday night off against the Pacers, but clearly looked re-energized in tonight's upset win versus Boston. His points, rebounds, and treys established new season-highs. The Cavaliers' 11-game losing streak was snapped thanks to Love's strong performance, and they'll travel to Washington for Friday's game.
Cleveland Cavaliers PF Kevin Love has been ruled out Monday vs the Pacers.
The Cavs have ruled out Kevin Love (rest), Darius Garland (ankle), Cedi Osman (ankle), and Isaiah Hartenstein (head) on Monday in the second leg of a back-to-back. In Sunday's loss, Collin Sexton and Isaac Okoro combined for 34 field goal attempts, and both players will once again benefit from additional usage.
Kevin Love pitched in eight points (2-9 FG, 1-4 3PT, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one turnover in Sunday's loss to Dallas.
The boards were nice, but the shooting wasn't, as Love converted on merely 22.2% of his shot attempts. With four games left for Cleveland, it's simply anyone's guess whether he's shut down or not.
Kevin Love has been listed as questionable ahead of the Cavaliers game Friday against Dallas.
Love is a late addition to the injury report, so this will be a situation to monitor.
Kevin Love pitched in 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-10 3PT), eight boards, two assists, and one steal in Wednesday's massive defeat to the Blazers.
Love has been healthy, seen plenty of action on the court, and continues to be a solid fantasy asset despite a miserable second-half of the season for the Cavaliers. It's quite surprising that he hasn't been shut down, and perhaps he'll appear in the final six contests of the year. Fantasy owners should feel grateful that plus/minus isn't used for fantasy purposes, as Love recorded an abysmal game-low -45. He'll take on Luka Doncic and the Mavericks on Friday night.
