Cavs 103, Celtics 95; Jason Lloyd's 31 thoughts on LeBron, Love, scrutiny and success

BOSTON: Thirty-one thoughts for 31 points from LeBron James in a 103-95 win over the Boston Celtics that gave the Cavs a commanding 3-0 series lead… 1. Kevin Love’s nerves were a bit rattled during his first postseason game last Sunday. He fell into foul trouble on Tuesday. With the nerves calmed and the fouls no longer an issue, Love was terrific in Game 3. 2. Kyrie Irving’s shining moments came in Games 1 and 2, but with Irving struggling to find his range outside and getting battered inside, Love produced his finest performance of this series. He made six 3-pointers – the most...

Kevin Love after Cavs game three win: "I'm sending the love right back" to teammates, Cavs organization

Kevin Love was phenomenal in Boston. He reflects a bit on his season. The Kevin Love issue has been debated ad nauseum this season, and it's not going away anytime soon. In the meantime, the Cavs are winning playoff games and Kevin Love is a huge factor. In his press conference after the game, he admitted that the corner three he used to sink the Celtics was something he's had to incorporate this year. He's had ups and downs, and is perhaps not completely healthy. Through it all, he's been positive about his experience in Cleveland and with the Cavs. That didn't change Thursday night. Love...

NBA Playoffs: Cavaliers lead Celtics 75-68 after three quarters

The Cavaliers opened the third quarter on a 17-4 run and built their largest lead of the game, 68-54 with 6:50 to go in the quarter. The spurt featured a Kevin Love two-hand reverse dunk following a pass by LeBron James who was near mid-court at 8:06 and a James two-hand dunk facing the basket off of an alley-oop pass from Kyrie Irving at 6:50.

Timofey Mozgov, Irving, James and Love combined to score all of the points during the 17-4 surge. The Celtics...

NBA Playoffs 2015: What's at stake for Kevin Love

Kevin, you were the straw that the media grasped for as they struggled to poke holes in what looked like an emerging Eastern juggernaut.  You apparently were being misused by an offense that sometimes imitates a Groupon, dropping three quarters worth of points in a mere two.  What more do people want?   In a league obsessed with the "stretch four" it was for some reason considered crime to use you as one.  Your predecessor warned you it would be different playing next to LeBron. In some ways Bosh was really warning us all. We were going to see a new Kevin Love.  Apparently it is more...

CLEVELAND: Thirty-three thoughts for 33 free throw attempts in a 113-100 Game 1 victory Sunday against the Boston Celtics… 1. For all the sniping, tweets, mythical MVP ballots and personality differences between LeBron James and Kevin Love, one thing is clear: James has spent the last few days stressing Love’s importance to this team and then spent Sunday’s first quarter doing his best getting Love involved. 2. It was ugly early, but the end result – 19 points and 12 rebounds – is exactly what James wanted to see from his big man. Love fell a point shy from joining LeBron James...
