The Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the Golden State Warriors 49-78 at halftime of Monday night’s game, and unfortunately, things didn’t get much better for the East leading Cavs.
According to the Cavs, heard through Fox Sports Ohio’s Allie Clifton, power forward Kevin Love did not start the second half. He was dealing with back tightness and did not return to the rest of the game.
Per #Cavs Kevin Love WILL NOT return … low back soreness. #CavsWarriors

It was probably best to sit Love out the rest of the game as the Cavs were already trailing by 29 points at the half. Stay tuned for any updates on Kevin Love. The Cavs return home now and play again on Thursday night against the Phoenix Suns.
