Kevin Love shot 6-for-7 from the floor and 12-for-12 from the line for 27 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes in Monday’s 117-111 victory over the Pacers in Game 2.
It was the first time that the Cavs’ big three scored 25 each or more in a playoff game. Kevin Love lived at the line all night and played efficiently to nail all of his free throws. He took several charges in front of the charge circle, but only drew one charge that was called in the game. Love was a burst of energy to end the third quarter, giving the Cavs an 18-point lead. The Pacers came roaring back, but Love made big free throws down the stretch to secure the win. Game 3 is on Thursday in Indianapolis.
