Richard Jefferson contributed nicely to his team with nine points, eight rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer in Wednesday’s pivotal win against the Warriors.
He filled in admirably for Kevin Love and provided the Cavaliers with a smaller lineup to match the Warriors on the court. Jefferson logged 33 minutes and he’ll likely be called upon again to start if Love is unable to get medically cleared for Game 4. With the chemistry that the Cavaliers displayed tonight, Kevin Love may not have much leash to operate with if he begins to struggle again when he makes his return to the court. Either way, RJ has earned more minutes with this performance and any time Love is sitting on the bench, he and Channing Frye who was scoreless tonight in 12 minutes, will fill the gap.
