Cavs' Kevin Love suffers lower back injury during Sunday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) A lower back injury forced Cavaliers forward Kevin Love to leave Sunday's contest against the 76ers, reports the team's official website.

The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of the game and Love did not return. Love scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds over 31 minutes before leaving with the injury. Love has been experiencing back issues for most of the season.

Coach David Blatt said the injury occurred when Love received an elbow to his back and he doesn't think it's a serious injury, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.

Kevin Love not 'best friends' with LeBron James, plans to stick with Cavs


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Kevin Love's rocky season in Cleveland has led to plenty of speculation as to whether he'll be back in a Cavaliers uniform in 2015. 

Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show on Monday, Love gave a definitive statement, for the moment at least, on where he stands with the organization. Asked if winning an NBA title would sway his decision one way or the other, Love said he has no plans to head elsewhere

"I plan on being a Cavalier either way," Love said. 

Love and teammate LeBron James' relationship has been scrutinized at times, with the two not seeing eye to eye early at times this season. In February, James tweeted, "Stop trying to find a way to FIT-OUT and just FIT-IN," in reference to a quote Love gave about not trying too hard to fit in early this season

On his Instagram page Sunday, James posted a photo of himself and a few teammates, without Love, and the caption, "Clique up!!" This led to speculation, once again, as to whether the two are getting along. 

Also appearing on ESPN's Mike & Mike, Love said he and James are beginning to find common ground

"You know, we're not best friends, we're not hanging out every day, but we see each other every day, whether at the practice facility, whether we're on the road or going to a game," Love said. "I think our relationship is also evolving."

In his first season with the Cavs, Love is averaging 16.5 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. Traded to the Cavs from the Timberwolves, Love is in the final year of his contract and will be a free agent this offseason.

Cavs' Kevin Love says he was 'caught off guard' by LeBron tweet


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) After Cavaliers forward LeBron James tweeted out Saturday about fitting in, which seemed to be directed to Kevin Love, speculation began to increase over the nature of their relationship.

After Tuesday's practice, Love indicated there are no issues between him and LeBron, reports the Akron Beacon Journal

"I was caught off-guard when I heard about it," Love said. "We're teammates, we see each other, there’s no problem with us."

When he asked if he felt LeBron's tweet was directed at him, Love said James has not brought up the issue with him.

"I don't know. I truly feel if LeBron had a problem with me or had to talk to me for good or worse, he would've come up and talked to me," Love said. "I truly believe that."


Cavaliers' LeBron: 'Fit in' tweet was 'not a coincidence'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) When Cavaliers forward LeBron James tweeted Saturday about finding ways to "fit in" instead of fitting out, he admitted the tweet was meant to send a message, reports ESPN.com.

"It's not a coincidence, man," James said.

The tweet came after forward Kevin Love struggled, scoring just five points during Friday's loss to the Pacers. Love has found it difficult to find his role with the Cavaliers this season and said during the preseason that he just wanted to be himself and not worry about fitting in. He admitted his inconsistent season has been hard for him.

"I think it's one of the toughest situations I've had to deal with," Love said.

James has worked to involve Love in the team's offense and help him adjust to his role, but James said everyone needs to be committed to fitting in.

"And people are always trying to fit out instead of fitting in, instead of being a part of something special," James said. "And that's all that was about."

The tweet may have worked with Love coming off one of his best games as a Cavalier when he scored 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds during Sunday's win over the Lakers.
