Lue says Cavs will play with Love in mind
Many around the NBA are predicting a banner season from Kevin Love, and an ESPN feature on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ power forward hammered home that very concept.
Among the believers? None other than Cavs coach Tyronn Lue.
“Kevin is going to have the best year that he’s had here,” Lue told ESPN. “I thought he was great anyway. You keep bringing up [Chris] Bosh. What did Bosh average in Miami? Kevin averaged almost 20 [points] and 10 [rebounds] with two other All-Stars. If you are on a championship-caliber team, you have to sacrifice. But this year is going to be a big opportunity for him. We’re going to play through him more. He’s going to get those elbow touches again.” – CLICK HERE to read full story.
