The Warriors knew exactly which matchup they wanted, after Kyrie went Steph in Steph’s face to put the Cavaliers up three with less than a minute to play in last night’s mind-blowing Game 7. They didn’t call a timeout to talk about it. They didn’t give Tyronn Lue a chance to make a substitution. They wanted Kevin Love…
If you’re a basketball fan who has been on the internet this morning, you’ve likely seen a Vine that appears to show Kevin Love attempting to high five LeBron James, and then getting mercilessly left hanging.
First things first: They get no credit for making the Finals. LeBron James could win three playoff series in the East with any four Supreme Court justices as his running mates. Account for that, and what have these bozos contributed to the effort?
This hasn’t exactly been the redemptive trip to the Finals Kevin Love was probably hoping for. After scoring 17 points and grabbing 13 rebounds in the Game 1 loss, Love had the worst night possible in Game 2. He scored five points and corralled three rebounds in 21 minutes, and had to remove himself from the game…
In Kevin Love, the Cavaliers have an incomplete player who is very good at the things he does well, and a liability in the things he doesn’t. Trailing in the fourth quarter, and so perhaps out of desperation, Tyronn Lue and the Cavs switched to a risky gameplan that paid off with a win, and a somewhat counterintuitive…
The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 120-103 on Saturday, and one would assume that such a victory would have put everyone in the locker room in a good mood. Maybe it did, but it also put LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the mood to do some subtweeting.
With last night’s victory against the Indiana Pacers, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 5-1 since David Blatt was fired and Tyronn Lue was named head coach. After the game, Kevin Love punctuated his team’s string of successes with this Instagram post:
The Cleveland Cavaliers screwed the goddamn pooch. They dropped the ball. They shit the bed. They crashed and burned. They were on the ass-end of a trainwreck. They blew it.
In a post on the Players’ Tribune, free-agent forward Kevin Love announced that he will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.
The idea of LeBron James signing with a different subpar team every season and dragging them to the Finals would make for an entertaining project, but that probably won’t happen, even though James reportedly decided to decline his player option with the Cavaliers.
Kevin Love will opt out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers and become a free agent this summer, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Kevin Love will miss the rest of the 2015 playoffs after undergoing surgery on his dislocated left shoulder, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced Wednesday night.
The Cavaliers beat the Celtics yesterday to advance to the second round of the playoffs, but their victory came at a heavy cost. The NBA has weighed in on various incidents that occurred during the game, and today meted out punishment.
Well, shit. The Cleveland Cavaliers have just announced that Kevin Love will miss all of the upcoming Eastern Conference semifinals because of the separated shoulder that he suffered during the team’s Game 4 victory over the Boston Celtics this weekend.
For a team that just swept its first-round series and is comfortably in a two-power conference, the Cavaliers sure are messy right now. “There’s a lot of things up in the air with our team,” said LeBron James, as the Cavs head into a likely series against the Bulls without the services of starters J.R. Smith…
The Cavaliers completed their sweep of the Celtics today, but the bigger story from the game is the injury to Kevin Love’s left shoulder.
A struggle to pull down a rebound resulted in a dislocated shoulder for the Cavaliers’ Kevin Love, who immediately grabbed his arm and raced for the locker room after tangling with the Celtics’ Kelly Olynyk. There’s no word as to when he will return to today’s fourth game of the 3-0 series.
There was a moment during Sunday’s game between the Celtics and Cavaliers during which, if you squinted hard enough, you could start to make out the vague outline of a Game 1 upset. The Celtics—a well-coached team with nothing to lose that rode into the playoffs on a wave of good vibes—were spacing the floor, running…
