Kevin Love scored 14 points (two treys), grabbed four boards, dished three dimes and swiped one steal in 28 minutes vs. the Raptors in the Game 1 win.
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James did most of the heavy lifting tonight so Love was not leaned as much. Love had a poor game by his standards, but the game was out of hand early so he didn’t need to be as aggressive. We look to see him get more involved in Game 2 as the Raptors likely put up a better fight. J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson should also have better games this series. Neither played more than 28 minutes, but should see more minutes if the Raptors play better.
