Kevin Love in Boston for Game 7, hopeful for a Game 1 to play in
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.
Kevin Love is at TD Garden for Game 7. He’ll watch the action in a room in the back. To say the least, this circumstance has him bummed out, but he’s hopeful there will be a game for him to play in on Thursday.

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.
