Kevin Love won’t play for the Cavs against the Warriors

The Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena on Friday. The team will be without All-Star power forward Kevin Love. The Cavs say Love is still suffering from a sore left shoulder.

Love has missed the last three games with the sore shoulder. After Friday, Cleveland has two games left in the season.

The Cavs enter Friday with a record of 19-60. They are 7-14 when Kevin Love is in the lineup.

Love has appeared in 21 games this season. The five-time All-Star is averaging 17.6 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per contest while shooting 38.4 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from beyond the arc, and 90.4 percent from the free-throw line.

Love, of course, underwent foot surgery after playing in the team’s first four games and missed a chunk of the season.

The Warriors are coming off a blowout win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday. Golden State did lose to the lowly Phoenix Suns at home a few weeks ago, so maybe the Cavs can shock the world. However, the Dubs are playing really good basketball right now.

Friday will be a good test for Cavs rookie point guard Collin Sexton, who will be matched up against Stephen Curry. Let’s see how the rookie does against the two-time MVP.
