Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love made headlines several weeks ago for walking off the court, appearing to be frustrated with sophomore point guard Collin Sexton. The veteran, however, shook off any notions of a feud with his Cavs teammate.
On Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies, Love dished out a nifty assist to Sexton, throwing a pass under his legs for the young guard to pull up and convert from downtown (via Yahoo Sports NBA).
See you with the dime, @kevinlove 👀

Kevin Love has been the subject of speculation of many trade rumors given the Cavs’ rebuild and youth movement. The All-Star forward could be dealt before the league’s trade deadline on Feb. 6, although it has always seemed like he has been on the trading block since LeBron James’ departure from the team.
Nevertheless, Kevin Love could be an under-the-radar acquisition by a competitive team willing to shell out enough to obtain the champion’s talents from the Cavs.
Entering Friday, Love is averaging 17.0 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game for the Wine and Gold. He is also shooting 45.5 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 85.3 percent from the free-throw line.
