Love (conditioning) tallied 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) nine rebounds and two assists across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 109-99 loss to the Nets.

The veteran big man missed the past eight games due to COVID-19 protocols and immediately assumed his normal workload. It's important to note Love didn't see an uptick in minutes despite the numerous injuries to the Cavaliers' front court, but that could be attributed to the team simply working the 33-year-old back into game shape. With Jarrett Allen (illness), Lauri Markkanen (COIVD-19) and Evan Mobley (elbow) all out Wednesday, Ed Davis got the start at center and played 24 minutes with Love essentially operating as the second big man opposite Dean Wade.
