Kevin Love (hand) put up an old-school double-double with 17 points and 18 boards in the Cavs’ road win in Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Love hit 5-of-10 shots (including a three) with two steals and a 6-of-8 mark from the foul line in his 31 minutes. He has been a top-40 player on the season so far and Kyrie Irving will hurt him but Love has hit just 41.3 percent of his shots so far this year. It’s possible the lack of usage will be offset by the increase in efficiency here. We haven’t heard anything about his left (non-shooting) hand and owners can file it away in the back drawer for now.
