Video: Kevin Love says he should go back to the hospital after playing so well vs. Bucks
Kevin Love turned a lot of heads with the performance he had on Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite needing to go to the hospital following their previous game, he proved he was back to 100 percent, by posting an impressive stat line, and helping the Cleveland Cavaliers win their fifth game this season.
The 29-year-old UCLA product had his best game of the year so far, as he recorded 32 points, 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one blocked shot. He even joked to the reporters around him in their locker room that it may be a good idea for him to go back to the hospital and receive once again whatever they gave him previously, as it could have made the difference for him to play that well against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Cavs have not had the best of starts to the season, and only have a 5-6 record through 11 games. Although injuries to some of their key players have played a huge role to their slow start, they were still not expected to struggle this much, especially being the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions.
The team is hoping Love can build on his impressive performance and continue playing that way in their coming games. The Cavaliers will need everyone in their team to contribute to their cause, as they try to turn around their fortunes, and start to string a few wins together.
