Kevin Love posted 25 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 42 minutes in Friday's win against the Clippers.
Love hit 9-of-18 from the field, including 3-of-7 from behind the arc, and his plus-9 rating was the best among all Cavs starters. This was just the second time this season he has posted 20 or more points in back-to-back games, and he hasn't done it in three straight outings yet. He'll look to keep up the good work in Monday's game at Detroit. Nov 17 - 10:45 PM

The Cavs earned their first three-game win streak of the season on Wednesday, aided by Kevin Love's 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Love did his damage in just 27 minutes tonight, hitting 9-of-16 shots while chipping in one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. After a quiet six-point effort vs. the Knicks on Monday, this is exactly what Love's fantasy owners were hoping to see. Hopefully he can keep it going vs. the Clippers' frontcourt on Friday.
Nov 15 - 11:00 PM

Kevin Love was benched down the stretch of Monday's win over the Knicks, finishing with six points, six rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

He was 2-of-9 from the field and was getting bullied down low by Enes Kanter. Channing Frye was a +20 during his time on the floor and the Cleveland's second unit (and LeBron) mounted an epic comeback late, so Love didn't touch the floor in the fourth quarter. Love was putting up 26.0 points and 12.3 rebounds in his previous three, so look for him to bounce back in a big way vs. Charlotte on Wednesday.
Nov 13 - 10:24 PM

Kevin Love connected on 11-of-19 from the field to finish with 29 points, 15 rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot across 36 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 win at Dallas.

Love did most of his offensive damage in the third quarter, scoring 13 points as the Cavs outscored the Mavs 34-22 to pull themselves up and avoid an embarrassing road loss. Kevlar banged home three 3-pointers for the second consecutive game, and he has at least two triples in each of his past five contests away from home.
Nov 11 - 11:04 PM

Kevin Love scored 17 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 29 minutes in Thursday's 117-113 loss to Houston.

He fouled out with 2:01 remaining and had some trouble containing Clint Capela. Love hit 5-of-12 shots and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the line, but this was always going to be a tough matchup for him. He was coming off a 32-point gem and gets a game against the tanking Mavs on Saturday, so his owners should be expecting a big night.
Nov 9 - 11:23 PM

Kevin Love finally got it going with a season-high 32 points in Tuesday's 124-119 win over the Bucks.

The Cavs still have a losing record and their defense was atrocious again, but at least Love found his shot. He was averaging just 16.2 points on 40.2 percent shooting entering this game, but finished 9-of-14 from the field and 14-of-16 from the line with 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block. It looked like he was back in Minnesota and his fantasy owners can only hope this big performance gives him some momentum.
Nov 7 - 10:21 PM

Kevin Love (illness) will start Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Love had to be taken to the hospital directly from the arena Sunday night. However, he was released shortly thereafter and was able to practice on Monday. Thus, it's not a surprise to see him back in the lineup.
Nov 7 - 7:15 PM

Kevin Love (illness) practiced with the Cavaliers on Monday.

This is really good news considering Love was getting treated at the hospital on Sunday. If he's healthy enough to practice, this means he should be available on Tuesday vs. the Bucks. If we don't get confirmation after Monday's practice, look for an update after Tuesday's morning shootaround.
Nov 6 - 12:03 PM

Kevin Love (illness) has been released from the hospital and is back home.

The Cavs haven't provided any more details, so it's unclear whether he might be recovered in time to play the Bucks on Tuesday. If Love can't suit up, expect to see more minutes for Channing Frye and Ante Zizic when the Cavs aren't going small.

Kevin Love (illness) is being evaluated at a hospital after leaving Sunday's game in the third quarter.

Love was dragging badly prior to his exit and the hospitalization is concerning, but we'll know more soon. Cleveland's next game is at home vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.
Nov 5 - 6:11 PM

Kevin Love (illness) won't return on Sunday after leaving early in the third quarter.

Love was awful prior to departing, so at least we know why. He was reportedly feeling ill all day but wasn't on the injury report, and we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's home game vs. the Bucks. The Cavs are already short-handed with Tristan Thompson (calf) out, so if Love misses time we'll be seeing more of Jae Crowder, Channing Frye and possibly Ante Zizic.
Nov 5 - 5:07 PM

Kevin Love scored 13 points with 13 rebounds, three assists, one block, no turnovers and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He's going to be shifting back to the center spot because Tristan Thompson (calf) was hurt today. Love has three starts at center and four at forward, but his numbers are slightly worse at center in that smaller sample. There's really not much to worry about here and Love should flirt with early-round value no matter where he gets his minutes.
Nov 1 - 9:34 PM

Kevin Love scored 26 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He did take some contact in the second half and was in some discomfort, but he did return to the game. While he is starting at power forward now, Love is still getting some decent run at center -- that lineup did not fare well today. Whatever the case, Love will get plenty of offensive opportunity and should post several 20-10 lines like this one.
Oct 28 - 9:38 PM

Kevin Love made 4-of-13 from the field for 15 points with 12 rebounds and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

Despite the great matchup, Love struggled to score inside the arc and he turned the ball over a season-high six times. He's going to be the second option in this offense and he's taking five treys per game this year. Although, Love is making just 26.8 percent of his jumpers, including 24.0 percent of treys. There's nothing to worry about here and he just needs his jumper to start falling.
Oct 25 - 10:34 PM

Kevin Love hit 7-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 20 points, 12 rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's 119-112 win over the Bulls.

Love is one rebound shy of four straight double-doubles and is averaging 17.8 points, 11 boards, 0.7 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers per game. He's doing all this without topping 30 minutes in any of his four games, which should work in his favor healthwise as the season progresses.
