Kevin Love in Boston for Game 7, hopeful for a Game 1 to play in

Kevin Love

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in Boston to take on the Celtics in a do-or-die Game 7 on Sunday night. Unfortunately, they’ll be without All-Star power forward Kevin Love, who suffered a concussion in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night.

Love finished that game with no points and four rebounds in just under five minutes of action. According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Love traveled with the team to Boston and will be in the back watching and supporting his team. Unfortunately, being under the NBA’a concussion protocol means he isn’t allowed to be on the bench during the game. Love is also hopeful there’s a Game 1 for him to try and play in on Thursday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

The Cavs are going to be very shorthanded in Game 7, with their strategies likely be a little different than the usual with Love out of the lineup and Jeff Green in the starting lineup.
