Love leaves game with bruised thigh

VIDEO: Kevin Love missed final quarter.

As if watching Avery Bradley’s 3-point buzzer beater that cost them the game wasn’t painful enough, the Cavaliers also were hurt playing the final quarter Friday night without Kevin Love, who suffered a bruised thigh.

The Cleveland power forward had scored 10 points and grabbed five rebounds when he went to the floor with 1 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.

    Jonathan when you say “deception,” you mean “disappointment.” It’s not the same in English as it is in Spanish. In Spanish “decepción” means “disappointment” in English. In English, “deception” means like a “trick,” or “fraud.” “Deception” in English means “engaño” en Spanish.

    I’ve no words for the Cleveland Cavaliers, I so disappointed to the way this guys are playing. LJ shooting from the 3 point line. LJ you are not a good 3 point shooter; If you were a 3 point shooter all the teams will guard you at the 3 point line. stop shooting 3 pointers and fade away jumpers. You are coming closer to be worst than Kobe Braynt this season. You FGM-A is less than 50%, as an example yesterday game was 9-23 you stink right now. your 3 point yesterday was 0-5 that is 0% and your FTM-A was 12-17. If you would not make those free trows you would end up with 18 points. Again he is shooting 25% of all team attempts. Not only that but Cleveland is only playing 5 guys out of 15 guys in the team. Cleveland will never beat Golden State/San Antonio or Oklahoma in the finals. To be more realistic I don’t think cleave land will make it out of the east this year the way if they continue to play the way they are playing right now.

    The K. Love injury appears to be a “charlie-horse” type of thing, definitely uncomfortable but unlikely to cause him to miss much time. It appeared to be little more than a light, incidental contact – maybe hip bone to thigh – and Kevin didn’t look too bad as he was walking to the dressing room for a better examination. In his post-game interview, he made it sound like he felt he would play Saturday night against the Pelicans.

    I was waiting for reactions from LeBron, and even more so from J.R. Smith…. especially since the opponent was the Celtics. I envisioned J.R. stating: “That Marcus Smart guy should know better, that wasn’t a basketball play…. that was a ‘dirty’ play, and if *anyone* would know a ‘dirty’ play, it would be ME!” Good thing Kelly Olynyk wasn’t on the floor or involved….

    This ain’t no injury come’on ! It’s a Charley Horse ! It happens all the time to me when i ball, sure hurts on the moment but calling this an injury? just LOL . KLove has been nothing short of a deception sisnce he’s in Cleveland. No guts no grits

    K love is overrated. These days it looks like LJ will get what he deserves.

    Well, I can’t believe this is happening,,, the Cavs can’t win the championship again. sorry but the west teams are really tough. the cavs can’t beat them. no championship again.

  10. I think Kevin Love is just being Cavalier.

    Who cares, Kevin Love is way over rated. King said they were going to run the ofense throgh him this year. Yea right king! How can you tell when da king is giving us a bunch of BS? His lips and mouth are moving. Way to go last night king. You gave up 39 in the fourth! Wow! You gave it to Boston. You think we’ll ok if you were playing GSW . But Boston? Boston? In your own house! Can you say wheels are coming off! King times running out….
