Apr. 17 7:50 PM PT8:50 PM MT9:50 PM CT10:50 PM ET2:50 GMT10:50 7:50 PM MST9:50 PM EST6:50 UAE (+1)04:5022:50 ET9:50 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 27 points Monday as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Indiana Pacers 117-111.

Analysis: There were only four games all season in which he had fewer than 10 field-goal attempts, but it happened with regularly in last year's playoffs. Game 1 of this series may be an indication that he again won't be as big a part of the Cleveland offense when it matters most, considering he averaged just 11.8 points in 12 games during the 2016 conference finals and NBA Finals.
Apr. 12 2:33 PM PT3:33 PM MT4:33 PM CT5:33 PM ET21:33 GMT5:33 2:33 PM MST4:33 PM EST1:33 UAE (+1)23:3317:33 ET4:33 PM CTNaN:� - Love (rest) will not play in Wednesday's regular-season finale.

Analysis: Love could have a big night, as he'll be the focal point of the offense. The problem is, he won't be getting the open looks Irving and James typically provide him.
Apr. 10 7:20 PM PT8:20 PM MT9:20 PM CT10:20 PM ET2:20 GMT10:20 7:20 PM MST9:20 PM EST6:20 UAE (+1)04:2022:20 ET9:20 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 25 points Monday, going 8 of 18 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Miami Heat 124-121 in overtime.

Mar. 25 6:34 PM PT7:34 PM MT8:34 PM CT9:34 PM ET1:34 GMT9:34 6:34 PM MST8:34 PM EST5:34 UAE (+1)02:3421:34 ET7:34 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 17 points Saturday on 5-of-11 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Washington Wizards 127-115.

Analysis: Love is averaging 14.4 points and 10 rebounds in five games since returning from surgery on his left knee. As his minutes begin to creep up, his production should as well.
Mar. 24 6:07 PM PT7:07 PM MT8:07 PM CT9:07 PM ET1:07 GMT9:07 6:07 PM MST8:07 PM EST5:07 UAE (+1)02:0721:07 ET7:07 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 15 points Friday, going 6 of 12 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Charlotte Hornets 112-105.

Mar. 22 8:01 PM PT9:01 PM MT10:01 PM CT11:01 PM ET3:01 GMT11:01 8:01 PM MST10:01 PM EST7:01 UAE (+1)04:0123:01 ET9:01 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored nine points Wednesday on 3-of-9 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Denver Nuggets 126-113.

Mar. 20 11:24 PM PT12:24 AM MT1:24 AM CT2:24 AM ET6:24 GMT14:24 11:24 PM MST1:24 AM EST10:24 UAE07:242:24 ET12:24 AM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love scored 21 points Sunday on 6-of-15 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 125-120. Love pulled down 15 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 25:54 of playing time. Love went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Love was in top form in his second game back from knee surgery, though his big numbers came against one of the league's worst defenses. He played 20 minutes Thursday in his return, and expect his playing time to gradually increase over the next week or two.
Mar. 18 3:36 PM PT4:36 PM MT5:36 PM CT6:36 PM ET22:36 GMT6:36 3:36 PM MST5:36 PM EST2:36 UAE (+1)23:3618:36 ET4:36 PM CTNaN:� - The Cavaliers will hold out Love, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James for Saturday's game at the Clippers.
Analysis: Love just returned from a lengthy absence caused by a minor knee procedure to play 20 minutes in Thursday's win over Utah, and the Cavs will ease him in slowly. There's a chance Love sits again in Sunday's matchup with the Lakers, and his minutes will surely be limited even if he does take the court.
Mar. 16 5:49 PM PT6:49 PM MT7:49 PM CT8:49 PM ET0:49 GMT8:49 5:49 PM MST7:49 PM EST4:49 UAE (+1)01:4920:49 ET6:49 PM CTNaN:� - Kevin Love returned to the lineup and scored 10 points Thursday, going 5 of 9 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Utah Jazz 91-83. Love pulled down nine rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -5 in his 19:45 on the floor.
Analysis: Love made a much quicker return than expected after doctors removed ''loose bodies'' from his knee Feb. 14 and told the All-Star he would need six weeks to recover. Coach Tyronn Lue had Love on a minutes restriction and said he might not be able to play on consecutive nights. Cleveland plays again Saturday against the Clippers in Los Angeles.
Feb. 12 11:20 AM PT12:20 PM MT1:20 PM CT2:20 PM ET19:20 GMT3:20 12:20 PM MST2:20 PM EST23:20 UAE20:2014:20 ET1:20 PM CTNaN:� - Love will start Thursday in Utah, but the star forward will be on a minutes limit as he returns after missing just over a month following a minor surgery on his left knee.
Analysis: This is certainly a much quicker return than expected. Doctors removed ''loose bodies'' from his knee Feb. 14 and told the All-Star he would need six weeks to recover. Earlier this week, general manager David Griffin said Love would return sometime during a four-game road swing which begins Saturday, but now he's coming back for the final home game before the trip. He practiced in full Wednesday, so apparently the Cavs felt he was ready for game action.
Feb. 8 5:54 PM PT6:54 PM MT7:54 PM CT8:54 PM ET1:54 GMT9:54 6:54 PM MST8:54 PM EST5:54 UAE (+1)02:5420:54 ET7:54 PM CTNaN:� - Love will start at Oklahoma City on Thursday.
Analysis: After Wednesday's win at Indiana, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he would probably rest Love, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving against the Thunder in the second half of a back-to-back. But now all three are expected to play.
Feb. 6 7:57 PM PT8:57 PM MT9:57 PM CT10:57 PM ET3:57 GMT11:57 8:57 PM MST10:57 PM EST7:57 UAE (+1)04:5722:57 ET9:57 PM CTNaN:� - Love had 39 points and 12 rebounds as the Cleveland Cavaliers edged the Washington Wizards 140-135 in overtime in a playoff-type atmosphere Monday night.
Analysis: Love's back seems to be just fine. In two games since returning from a two-game rest, Love has totaled 62 points and 28 rebounds while going 10 of 17 from 3.
Feb. 4 8:43 PM PT9:43 PM MT10:43 PM CT11:43 PM ET4:43 GMT12:43 9:43 PM MST11:43 PM EST8:43 UAE05:4323:43 ET10:43 PM CTNaN:� - Love had 23 points and 16 rebounds Saturday in his return, and Cleveland beat the New York Knicks 111-104.
Analysis: Love was back after missing two games and not only made four 3-pointers, but threw down a powerful dunk that had LeBron James and teammates on the bench spilling out the court in excitement. ''Overall, I felt pretty good,'' Love said. ''The thought is on this road trip we'll be able to get it back to 100 percent.''
Feb. 3 9:39 AM PT10:39 AM MT11:39 AM CT12:39 PM ET17:39 GMT1:39 10:39 AM MST12:39 PM EST21:39 UAE18:3912:39 ET11:39 AM CTNaN:� - Love doesn't believe the Cleveland Cavaliers will trade him.
Analysis: Despite weeks of rumors that the NBA champions have been in trade talks with the New York Knicks about a deal involving Carmelo Anthony for the All-Star forward, Love said Friday that he expects "to be here for a long time." Love said he has grown accustomed to having his name in trade speculation. Love missed Cleveland's past two games and sat out the second half of a game last week with back spasms. But he'll return to the lineup Saturday against the Knicks.
Jan. 29 1:07 PM PT2:07 PM MT3:07 PM CT4:07 PM ET21:07 GMT5:07 2:07 PM MST4:07 PM EST1:07 UAE (+1)22:0716:07 ET3:07 PM CTNaN:� - Love (back spasms) practiced Friday and will play in Saturday's game against the Knicks.
Analysis: After missing Cleveland's last two games and playing just 12 minutes in the team's previous contest, Love told reporters Friday he's feeling good and ready to get back in. The All-Star forward had a string of four straight double-doubles end when he was forced to exit Sunday's win over Oklahoma City.
Jan. 25 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:� - Love had 21 points and 16 rebounds in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Kings, Cleveland's sixth defeat in eight games.
Analysis: It was the second straight encouraging performance for Love, who had 22 points and 16 boards Monday at New Orleans. He has made 14 of 31 shots in the last two games after averaging 12 points on 30.3 percent shooting in his previous five.
Jan. 24 10:55 AM PT11:55 AM MT12:55 PM CT1:55 PM ET18:55 GMT2:55 11:55 AM MST1:55 PM EST22:55 UAE19:5513:55 ET12:55 PM CTNaN:� - Love had 22 points, 16 rebounds and six assists Monday.
Analysis: Though Cleveland lost for the fifth time in seven games, Love's performance should be a bit encouraging. He had averaged 12 points on 30.3 percent shooting in his previous five outings. He shot 7 of 15 overall on Monday but was 1 for 5 from downtown, and he's made just 26.2 percent of his 3-point tries this month.
Jan. 16 5:59 PM PT6:59 PM MT7:59 PM CT8:59 PM ET1:59 GMT9:59 6:59 PM MST8:59 PM EST5:59 UAE (+1)02:5920:59 ET7:59 PM CTNaN:� - Love will play in Saturday night's game against San Antonio after being questionable with a sore lower back.
Analysis: The injury caused Love to miss Thursday's game against Phoenix and limited him to 16 minutes in Monday's blowout loss to the Warriors. The three-time All-Star has been struggling, shooting 31.4 percent from the field while averaging just 11.8 points over his past four games.
Jan. 14 8:03 AM PT9:03 AM MT10:03 AM CT11:03 AM ET16:03 GMT0:03 9:03 AM MST11:03 AM EST20:03 UAE17:0311:03 ET10:03 AM CTNaN:� - Love was limited to 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting Friday, including 1 for 6 from 3-poitn range, but he did grab a season-best 18 rebounds.
Analysis: The big man's shot has been off since the calendar flipped to 2017, hitting 34 percent from the field and 27.7 percent from beyond the arc. He's averaged 16.3 points in those six games, about five below his season average.
Jan. 8 7:23 PM PT8:23 PM MT9:23 PM CT10:23 PM ET3:23 GMT11:23 8:23 PM MST10:23 PM EST7:23 UAE (+1)04:2322:23 ET9:23 PM CTNaN:� - Love had 25 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers fought off Phoenix down the stretch to beat the Suns 120-116 on Sunday night.

Jan. 6 7:36 PM PT8:36 PM MT9:36 PM CT10:36 PM ET3:36 GMT11:36 8:36 PM MST10:36 PM EST7:36 UAE (+1)04:3622:36 ET9:36 PM CTNaN:� - Love had 17 points and 13 rebounds in his return, but shot poorly early as the Nets kept it competitive for 1 1/2 quarters on Friday.
Analysis: Love missed a loss to Chicago on Wednesday and was limited in the previous game after suffering from food poisoning on New Year's Day.
Jan. 4 7:31 AM PT8:31 AM MT9:31 AM CT10:31 AM ET15:31 GMT23:31 8:31 AM MST10:31 AM EST19:31 UAE16:3110:31 ET9:31 AM CTNaN:� - Love (illness) will play in Friday's game against Brooklyn after taking part in the morning shootaround.
