Cavs Love to rest foot, won’t play against Pistons
Love still isn’t ready to play in back-to-back games and with Cleveland scheduled to host Orlando on Sunday, the team is remaining conservative with his minutes and won’t play the 30-year-old in Saturday’s matchup with the Pistons.
Love scored 26 points in 28 minutes in Thursday’s win against the New York Knicks — his fourth straight game.
The Cavs have steadily increased Love’s playing time since he came back from the operation, which kept the five-time All-Star out of 50 games. He scored 32 points against Memphis in his fourth game since returning.
Love is averaging 18.6 points and 10.7 rebounds in 10 games this season.
