Kevin Love    F/C  Cavaliers

 

 

Kevin Love made 8-of-16 field goals with seven 3-pointers on Sunday, scoring 28 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 36 minutes of action. Love hit all seven of his 3-pointers in the first half, a perimeter barrage that kept Boston at bay and set a franchise record for first-half triples. He was solid defensively, as well, and has been terrific in the Conference Finals after a quiet first two rounds of the playoffs. Love's second-half disappearance on offense tonight is puzzling, but he's been much more involved on that end and should be a safe play when Cleveland looks to take a commanding 3-1 lead on Tuesday.

Kevin Love scored 21 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Celtics on Friday. He's actually been a solid defender in this series and he's also lighting up the Celtics as a shooter. Love wasn't playing very well in the first two series, especially with just 12.0 points per game against the Raptors. Whatever happened in the time off, it's certainly helping. He's had a tough time against the Warriors, though.

Kevin Love scored a playoff career-high 32 points during Wednesday's Game 1 victory in Boston, making 9-of-16 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs with six 3-pointers, 12 rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes. Tyronn Lue vowed to get Love more involved offensively vs. Boston after he posted a 19.8% usage rate in the first two rounds. Lue cited matchups as the reason for Love's relatively low involvement vs. Indiana and Toronto, but the Celtics had no answers for the four-time All-Star tonight -- Love scored 18 points in the third quarter alone, helping the Cavs roll to an easy 117-104 win. "This is a perfect roster with regard to how many predicaments they can put you in with all of the shooting around [LeBron]," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said before the game. They'll go back to the drawing board for Game 2 on Friday.

Coach Tyronn Lue vowed to get Kevin Love more involved in the Cavs offense in the Eastern Conference Finals. Love averaged 19.1 points (on 14.5 field goal attempts) and 11.1 rebounds in the regular season, but has seen those averages dip to 13.8 points (on 9.9 FG attempts) and 9.1 boards in the playoffs. "For me, some of it's my fault because we haven't really featured him a lot because of the matchups we had on other teams," said coach Lue. "In this next series, we have some matchups he can definitely take advantage of, and it's on me to make sure we do that." Love will be a solid DFS option in the early games of the ECF.

Kevin Love was quiet in Cleveland's 109-102 Game 4 win over Toronto on Sunday, finishing with just five points, five rebounds, one 3-pointer, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes. Love just didn't have it in this one, and overall, he was hit-or-miss during this second-round series finishing with averages of 12.0 points, 8.5 boards, 1.0 assist and 2.3 turnovers per game on 44.7 percent shooting. His usage rate has also dipped to 19.8 through the postseason thus far, and part of that has to do with LeBron James taking on a much more proactive role on offense. It'll be interesting to see if Love gets more involved during the Eastern Conference Finals.

Kevin Love was quiet in 21 minutes on Wednesday, scoring nine points on 4-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal. Love committed four early turnovers, Channing Frye was on fire, and the Cavaliers quickly built up a commanding lead. It all added up to a disappointing night for Love, whose 21.5 percent usage rate pales in comparison to Kyrie Irving (33.9%) and LeBron James (32.1%). He should fare better in Toronto on Friday.

Kevin Love was held to five points on 2-of-13 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 win over the Pacers, adding 16 rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one block and four turnovers in 35 minutes. Love got off to a slow start offensively in this one, not even getting his first bucket until the final minute of the second quarter, but he made his presence felt on the glass all game long. In general, he was solid through the first-round, owning averages of 15.5 points, 9.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.3 triples and 2.5 turnovers per game, and he should continue to flirt with these numbers in Round 2.
