Kevin Love reflects on Cavalier career night, has his teammates to thank
Kevin Love’s time in Cleveland has been called uncertain and unproductive on average. But after winning a ring, reaching a lean physical condition, and now achieving his Cavalier career best of 40 points (previously 34), Love has finally found a new, rightful place with a surreal view on this team. Last night, after breaking a number of NBA and Cavalier records, Love took his appreciation and inside jokes to Instagram.
Yeah, that first quarter was wild!!! I have the best teammates in the world. From Bron drawing up plays for me in timeouts keeping me locked in, Ky finding me early again and again, TT bumpin boiiii, Swish chest bump and finding me on the bike after the quarter droppin' dimes, JMac and our entire bench going crazy…Champ saying "You Weak"…so much more I could say but man…Love you boyyys!!!
While Tyronn Lue always prioritizes him early in the offensive game plan, Love is still locked in as a third option that has capped the once NBA-leading double-double specialist to a 21-point, 10-rebound average this season. Perhaps nights like this will solidify more primary and secondary opportunities for him in regular season games. Either way, Love has found his way in Cleveland.
