Love scored 20 points (5-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 8-9 FT) while adding eight rebounds and an assist in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 98-97 loss to the 76ers.
He tied Jordan Clarkson for the team lead in scoring in the near-upset, but the Cavs' offense went cold down the stretch, Love included -- he was scoreless in the fourth quarter, missing a potential game-winning three-pointer with four seconds left. The veteran big has hit for 20 or more points in four of the first 10 games this year, averaging 18.5 points, 12.9 boards, 3.4 assists and 2.0 threes.
Love had 17 points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3PT, 9-9 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 108-87 win at the Knicks.
Love had major problems with his shooting and tied his season-low mark for rebounds in a single game, but he still produced at a decent rate for the surging Cavaliers. Despite the off night, Love has made 48.1 percent of his shots this season while averaging 13.4 rebounds per game. He will aim for a bounce-back performance Tuesday at Chicago.
Love scored 16 points (3-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 10-13 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 29 minutes during Friday's 113-100 win over the Wizards.
While he couldn't find his shot from the outside, Love still put together a solid night by drawing plenty of contact and getting to the line. It's his sixth double-double in eight games, and the 31-year-old is providing Cleveland with a solid veteran foundation in the first year of the big contract extension he signed two summers ago.
Love had 29 points (9-18 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 131-111 loss to the Mavericks.
Love was on the front foot Sunday, comfortably leading the Cavaliers with 29 points on 9-of-18 shooting. He was more aggressive on the offensive end and is averaging 17 shot attempts over the past two games. He is flirting with first-round value in standard leagues and the time to sell-high is now. Moving him may not be as simple as you might expect given his lengthy injury history. If you can't get a top-25 player in return, you may be better off holding to see what happens.
Love finished with 22 points (7-16 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 102-95 loss to the Pacers.
Love amassed a season high scoring total, this after averaging only 9.8 field goal attempts through the first four contests of 2019-20. While Love did finish with more turnovers (six) than assists, it was a solid stat line for the 31-year-old power forward. Sunday's matchup versus a Mavericks team that's not particularly impressive defensively provides another good chance for Love to make a big impact in the box score.
Love finished with 17 points (-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 20 rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 117-111 victory over the Bulls.
Love continues his strong start to the season, pulling down a season-best 20 boards to go with 17 points. Perhaps the biggest takeaway here is the fact he had a team-high six assists. The Cavaliers don't have a pass-first point guard and so the offense is going through Love. He is putting up top-40 numbers at the moment and if you are concerned about him getting injured, it could be a good time to try and sell high.
Love had 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-10 3PT, 2-2 FT), 16 rebounds and two assists during Cleveland's 129-112 loss to Milwaukee on Monday.
Love has been one of the best rebounders in the league over the past decade and has gotten off to a strong start this season, grabbing at least 13 boards in every game thus far. Those strong performances on the glass coupled with the fact that he should be one of the top scoring threats for Cleveland should maintain his upside going forward. Cleveland's next game will be against Chicago on Wednesday.
Love totaled 11 points (4-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 18 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 94-85 loss to the Magic.
Love wasn't that aggressive offensively but turned in a highly impressive stat line nonetheless. After appearing in just 22 games in 2018-19, Love could be in line for a bounce back campaign if he can stay healthy this time around.
Love had eight points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and five rebounds in 11 minutes during Tuesday's 118-95 loss to the Celtics.
Love returned to the lineup after sitting out Sunday's preseason matchup for rest purposes. As one of the few accomplished veterans on the roster, Love will be responsible for leading the club on both ends as the regular season approaches.
Love (rest) is off the injury report and will be available for Tuesday's preseason game against Boston.
Love will have a chance for one final tuneup prior to the start of the regular season after sitting out of Sunday's exhibition for rest.
Love will be rested for Sunday's preseason game against the Celtics, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
No surprise here, as the Cavs will likely continue to monitor Love's workload throughout the season given his injury history.
Love had nine points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), and four rebounds in 15 minutes during Friday's 109-105 preseason loss to the Pistons.
Love was kept to just 15 minutes Friday, likely as a result of the Cavaliers being extra careful with the oft-injured superstar. Love is coming off a disaster of a season but seems intent on turning things around. A trade does not seem likely at this stage and if Love can stay on the court, he could be one of the more under drafted players this season. Managers will find Love still available in the fourth and fifth rounds of many drafts, a spot where he could return up to 20 spots of value.
Love told Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com that he wants to remain in Cleveland long-term. "I do want to be here. I always have," Love said. "I say that knowing it's the NBA and it's a business. I think especially after seeing last year, the summer leading up to last year and this summer, the changeover is like unprecedented so you don't know what is going to happen."
Love's future may not ultimately be in his own hands, but it sounds as though the Cavs did not aggressive explore trading the 31-year-old this summer, and Fedor notes that the team would have to be "blown away" by an offer for Love. There figures to continue to be plenty of interest in Love around the league, though taking on the three years and roughly $92 million remaining on his contract would be a tough pill to swallow. On top of that, Love has had his fair share of injury issues of late, missing 60 games last season, 23 games the season before and 22 games in 2016-17. Still, when healthy, Love remains among the best stretch-fours and volume rebounders in the league. The veteran also noted that he's eager to work with new head coach John Beilein. "I know whether it's the next four, six or seven years here or whether it's the next four months, I'm just going to be me and continue to give it all I can," Love said. "I really do think, especially with (John Beilein), I can get a lot better."
Coach John Beilein said Monday that Love could be rested throughout the season, Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report reports.
While Beilein noted that Love is healthy and in great shape, it's tough ignore the fact that the big man has developed an injury-prone reputation in recent years. After playing at least 75 games from 2013-2016, Love missed 22 games in 2016-17, 23 the following year, and 60 a season ago. Given the Cavs' place as a rebuilding team in the East, the organization will likely closely monitor Love's workload, which could lead to planned "load management" nights. When healthy, Love remains one of the league's nightly double-double threats, but his injury history must be weighed heavily when assessing his fantasy stock.
Love has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Charlotte due to rest purposes.
Love returned to game action and logged 13 minutes off the bench in Sunday night's matchup, but he'll be held out for Cleveland's final regular-season game. He averaged 17.0 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 22 contests during the 2018-2019 campaign.
Love saw only 13 minutes of action in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.
The Cavs were paying tribute to Channing Frye, so Love allowed Frye to take his place in the starting lineup, but the reduced workload was a bit of a surprise, even after Love had missed the previous four games. He took only four shots and finished with five points, four rebounds and a pair of assists. The Cavs, who've already clinched a bottom-three record, finish up the regular season Tuesday against Charlotte, and Love's status for that contest is yet to be announced.
Love will come off the bench for Sunday's game against San Antonio, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.
Love is available to play, but he'll cede his spot in the starting five to Channing Frye, who's playing his final home game in Cleveland before he retires at season's end. It's unclear if Love's workload will be impacted by the move to the bench.
Love will be available for Sunday's game against San Antonio, Cavs play-by-play man Fred McLeod reports.
Love has missed the last four games with a sore shoulder, but he was removed from the injury report Saturday and will be in the starting lineup Sunday, despite the fact that the Cavs have nothing to play for, having already clinched the worst record in the league.
Love (shoulder) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Spurs.
Love has missed the past four games due to left shoulder soreness. His absence on the injury report indicates he's expected to play and start Sunday's game. Over his past four appearances, he's averaged 17.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 32.3 minutes.
Love (shoulder) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Warriors.
This will be Love's fourth straight absence with lingering shoulder soreness, and with just two games left in the regular season for Cleveland, it would be a surprise if Love played again. Larry Nance will likely draw another start Friday.
