Kevin Love scored 17 points with eight rebounds on 5-of-14 shooting during the painful Game 1 loss to the Celtics on Sunday.
Love has to play as well as he did during the Toronto series for the Cavs to win this series. He was getting dominated by Al Horford early as Horford scored 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting in the first quarter before Love was taken out for Tristan Thompson for defensive reasons. Love must improve on the defensive end of the floor if he is continuously tasked with guarding Horford in this series. The Cavs will look for a better performance from Love in Game 2 and will hope for a bounce back win on Tuesday.
