Performs well in return Love (calf) produced 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and three assists over 20 minutes Thursday in the Cavaliers' 114-94 loss to the 76ers.
Impact Love returned after missing the last nine games due to an aggravation of the calf injury that has sidelined him for most of the season. He was inserted into the starting five and performed well, while playing under a soft minutes limit. Love will likely remain restricted for a few more games, but if he can manage to stay healthy, he'll provide a nice boost for the struggling Cavs. Last season, the veteran big man averaged 17.6 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 31.8 minutes.
