Dec. 9 4:03 PM PT5:03 PM MT6:03 PM CT7:03 PM ET0:03 GMT8:03 5:03 PM MST7:03 PM EST4:03 UAE (+1)01:0319:03 ET6:03 PM CTNaN:� - Love will not play Saturday against the 76ers due to a sore left hip.
Analysis: A potential Love-Joel Embiid matchup has turned into a far less intriguing Ante Zizic-Amir Johnson clash. Zizic is still unlikely to have any fantasy appeal in his first NBA start, but Jeff Green's value could get a boost and LeBron James appears primed for another monster night.
Dec. 8 8:11 PM PT9:11 PM MT10:11 PM CT11:11 PM ET4:11 GMT12:11 9:11 PM MST11:11 PM EST8:11 UAE05:1123:11 ET10:11 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 20 points Friday, going 6 of 16 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Indiana Pacers 106-102. Love grabbed seven rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +11 in his 26:03 on the floor. Love went 2 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: It'll be interesting to see how Tyronn Lue works the rotation with Tristan Thompson close to rejoining the mix, as Love has settled in very nicely as the starting center. Averaging 24.2 points and 11.5 rebounds while shooting 42.5 percent (17 of 40) on 3s over a six-game run, Love's minutes and fantasy outlook still don't figure to change much even if he's playing more at the four.

Analysis: Love had his fewest rebounds of the season Monday, but he also played just 24:46 as the Cavs led by as much as 29 and are in action again Tuesday against the Heat.
Nov. 24 8:20 PM PT9:20 PM MT10:20 PM CT11:20 PM ET4:20 GMT12:20 9:20 PM MST11:20 PM EST8:20 UAE05:2023:20 ET10:20 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 11 points Friday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Charlotte Hornets 100-99.

Analysis: Next up for the Cavs is a home game against the Hornets on Friday, and in Charlotte on Nov. 15, Love had 22 points and 10 rebounds.
Nov. 20 6:44 PM PT7:44 PM MT8:44 PM CT9:44 PM ET2:44 GMT10:44 7:44 PM MST9:44 PM EST6:44 UAE (+1)03:4421:44 ET8:44 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 19 points Monday, going 8 of 12 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Detroit Pistons 116-88. Love grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +30 in his 25:47 of playing time. Love went 1 of 2 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Love has been taking more close-range shots lately and it's paying off, as the standout center has connected at a 56.5 percent clip while averaging 22 points over his last three games. He's played a big part in the Cavs' recent turnaround by averaging 21.4 points and 10.3 rebounds while going 11 of 27 (40.7 percent) on 3-point tries during a seven-game stretch.
Nov. 17 7:16 PM PT8:16 PM MT9:16 PM CT10:16 PM ET3:16 GMT11:16 8:16 PM MST10:16 PM EST7:16 UAE (+1)04:1622:16 ET9:16 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 25 points Friday on 9-of-18 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Los Angeles Clippers 118-113 in overtime. Love pulled down eight rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +9 in his 42:17 of playing time. He added one block and two steals. Love went 3 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Love and LeBron James have been giving the Cavs a "Big 2" until Isaiah Thomas comes back, with the All-Star big man doing his part by putting up 22 points or more in four of his last six games. His 3-point shot is starting to return as well, as he's 10 of 25 from beyond the arc over his last five outings.
Nov. 15 8:58 PM PT9:58 PM MT10:58 PM CT11:58 PM ET4:58 GMT12:58 9:58 PM MST11:58 PM EST8:58 UAE05:5823:58 ET10:58 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 22 points Wednesday on 9-of-16 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Charlotte Hornets 115-107.

Analysis: Though Love's shift to center has had a negative effect on his 3-point production, he's still averaging a very useful 21.2 points and 10.6 rebounds over his last five games. The double-double is his 10th in 15 contests this season.
Nov. 13 8:07 PM PT9:07 PM MT10:07 PM CT11:07 PM ET4:07 GMT12:07 9:07 PM MST11:07 PM EST8:07 UAE05:0723:07 ET10:07 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored six points Monday, going 2 of 9 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the New York Knicks 104-101. Love grabbed six rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 23:06 of playing time.
Nov. 11 8:33 PM PT9:33 PM MT10:33 PM CT11:33 PM ET4:33 GMT12:33 9:33 PM MST11:33 PM EST8:33 UAE05:3323:33 ET10:33 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 29 points Saturday on 11-of-19 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Dallas Mavericks 111-104. Love grabbed 15 rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +13 in his 35:34 of playing time. He added one block. Love went 3 of 5 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Love notched his ninth double-double in 13 games and set season highs with 11 field goals and 19 attempts. He hit three 3-pointers for the second straight game and is 15 for 31 from deep in six road games.
Nov. 9 8:04 PM PT9:04 PM MT10:04 PM CT11:04 PM ET4:04 GMT12:04 9:04 PM MST11:04 PM EST8:04 UAE05:0423:04 ET10:04 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 17 points Thursday on 5-of-12 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Houston Rockets 117-113. Love grabbed six rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 28:45 on the floor before fouling out. He added one steal. Love went 3 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Love had a tough matchup with Clint Capela in this one and fouled out for the first time this season. He couldn't come close to the 32 and 16 he had two days earlier against Milwaukee, but gets to the face the lowly Mavs on Saturday so maybe he bounces back with a big night.
Nov. 7 7:12 PM PT8:12 PM MT9:12 PM CT10:12 PM ET3:12 GMT11:12 8:12 PM MST10:12 PM EST7:12 UAE (+1)04:1222:12 ET9:12 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 32 points Tuesday on 9-of-14 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 124-119. Love pulled down 16 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +2 in his 34:51 of playing time
Analysis: Love, who was briefly hospitalized after scoring just four points in a surprising loss to Atlanta on Sunday, added one block and two steals.
Nov. 5 1:05 PM PT2:05 PM MT3:05 PM CT4:05 PM ET21:05 GMT5:05 2:05 PM MST4:05 PM EST1:05 UAE (+1)22:0516:05 ET3:05 PM CTNaN:� - Love left the Cavs' game against the Hawks on Sunday with an illness and won't return.
Analysis: Perhaps he was sick of both watching and participating in Cleveland's abysmal defense, which leaves shooters acres of open space and possesses a junior high-level of understanding on how to defend the pick and roll.
Nov. 5 3:57 PM PT4:57 PM MT5:57 PM CT6:57 PM ET23:57 GMT7:57 4:57 PM MST6:57 PM EST3:57 UAE (+1)00:5718:57 ET5:57 PM CTNaN:� - Love (illness) is in the Cavaliers' starting lineup for Tuesday's game at Milwaukee.
Analysis: Love was briefly taken to the hospital after leaving Sunday's loss to Atlanta, but practiced Monday and doesn't figure to be restricted too much. The four-time All-Star has been struggling lately, though. He's averaging just 9.3 points on 30.4 percent shooting in Cleveland's three November games.
Nov. 3 6:38 PM PT7:38 PM MT8:38 PM CT9:38 PM ET1:38 GMT9:38 6:38 PM MST8:38 PM EST5:38 UAE (+1)02:3821:38 ET7:38 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 11 points Friday, going 2 of 5 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Washington Wizards 130-122. Love pulled down eight rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 26:30 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Love went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.
Nov. 2 9:53 PM PT10:53 PM MT11:53 PM CT12:53 AM ET4:53 GMT12:53 9:53 PM MST11:53 PM EST8:53 UAE05:530:53 ET10:53 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 13 points Wednesday, going 4 of 12 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Indiana Pacers 124-107. Love pulled down 13 rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -10 in his 36:01 on the floor. He added one block. Love went 2 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Though he's shooting just 39.7 percent from the field over his last five games, Love has posted a double-double in each and made 15 of 33 attempts from 3-point range during that stretch. The All-Star forward may be moving back to center in the wake of Tristan Thompson's calf injury, though that still shouldn't affect his numbers all that much.
Oct. 30 7:32 AM PT8:32 AM MT9:32 AM CT10:32 AM ET14:32 GMT22:32 7:32 AM MST9:32 AM EST18:32 UAE15:3210:32 ET8:32 AM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 22 points Sunday on 5-of-15 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the New York Knicks 114-95. Love grabbed 11 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 34:33 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Love went 3 of 8 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Love has picked up his scoring since moving back to the 4, but he's shooting just 41.1 percent in those four games.
Oct. 28 6:36 PM PT7:36 PM MT8:36 PM CT9:36 PM ET1:36 GMT9:36 6:36 PM MST8:36 PM EST5:36 UAE (+1)03:3621:36 ET8:36 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 26 points Saturday, going 7 of 12 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 123-101. Love grabbed 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -12 in his 28:23 on the floor. He added one steal.
Analysis: Love went 5 of 6 from behind the arc after going 6 of 25 from deep in his first five games.
Oct. 25 7:16 PM PT8:16 PM MT9:16 PM CT10:16 PM ET2:16 GMT10:16 7:16 PM MST9:16 PM EST6:16 UAE (+1)04:1622:16 ET9:16 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 15 points Wednesday on 4-of-13 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Brooklyn Nets 112-107. Love grabbed 12 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 32:35 of playing time. Love went 2 of 6 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Love notched his fourth double-double in five games, but missed nine of 13 shots and didn't record an assist while turning it over six times. He's played forward the last two games after starting at center the first three with Cleveland's lineup in flux due to Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade's injury.
Oct. 24 7:07 PM PT8:07 PM MT9:07 PM CT10:07 PM ET2:07 GMT10:07 7:07 PM MST9:07 PM EST6:07 UAE (+1)04:0722:07 ET9:07 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 20 points Tuesday on 7-of-16 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Chicago Bulls 119-112. Love grabbed 12 rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 29:22 on the floor. Love went 3 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Love reached 20 points for the first time this season and recorded his third double-double in four games.
Oct. 21 7:45 PM PT8:45 PM MT9:45 PM CT10:45 PM ET2:45 GMT10:45 7:45 PM MST9:45 PM EST6:45 UAE (+1)04:4522:45 ET9:45 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 19 points Saturday on 8-of-17 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Orlando Magic 114-93. Love grabbed nine rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 27:06 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Love struggled from 3-point range, coming up empty on all five of his attempts.
Analysis: Love fell one rebound short of opening the season with three straight double-doubles.
Oct. 20 7:40 PM PT8:40 PM MT9:40 PM CT10:40 PM ET2:40 GMT10:40 7:40 PM MST9:40 PM EST6:40 UAE (+1)04:4022:40 ET9:40 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 17 points Friday on 5-of-12 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Milwaukee Bucks 116-97. Love grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out six assists, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 26:50 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Analysis: Love is off to a good start with consecutive double-doubles to start the season, and the six assists were a nice added bonus. If there's one potential drawback to his move to center in Cleveland's small-ball lineup, it's that's he just 1 for 7 thus far from 3-point range.
Oct. 17 8:16 PM PT9:16 PM MT10:16 PM CT11:16 PM ET3:16 GMT11:16 8:16 PM MST10:16 PM EST7:16 UAE (+1)05:1623:16 ET10:16 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 15 points Tuesday on 4-of-9 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Boston Celtics 102-99. Love grabbed 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -6 in his 28:24 on the floor. Love went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Love, making the transition to center this season, had a double-double after some early foul trouble. This was a relatively quiet start for Love, who averaged 19.0 points and 11.1 rebounds last season.
Oct. 2 4:47 PM PT5:47 PM MT6:47 PM CT7:47 PM ET23:47 GMT7:47 4:47 PM MST6:47 PM EST3:47 UAE (+1)01:4719:47 ET6:47 PM CTNaN:� - Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said after Monday's intra-squad scrimmage that Love will begin the season as the team's starting center.
Analysis: Love's position switch opens up a starting spot for newcomer Jae Crowder, a move that should bolster the defending Eastern Conference champions' perimeter defense while presenting a more athletic lineup. While the shift could result in Love taking a few less 3-point shots, it may enable him to rank among the league's leading rebounders like he was in Minnesota, where he saw plenty of time at the five.
