Kevin Love to return for Cavaliers against Milwaukee

Los Angeles CA USA Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James moves the ball against Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball during the second half at Staples Center

He said the team's coaches and players would have to rise to the occasion in Lue's absence.

Speaking of the Bucks, there's more than a bit of irony in them being the opponent for Cleveland in associate head coach Larry Drew's first game in place of Lue. He said his goal is to return in a week. He missed five games. Love, when asked about his hand, stated that it felt fine and he was surprised at how conditioned he still was after missing 21 games.

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue is taking a leave of absence to focus on his health.

On a day when the Cavaliers found out coach Tyronn Lue would have to miss some time because of serious medical issues, they got a bit of good news on the injury front when power forward Kevin Love returned to the lineup after almost two months on the shelf because of a broken bone in his left hand. "I thought he gave us a tremendous lift, not only the fact that he made some shots, but I thought he was pretty active defensively".

As LeBron James wowed with a 40 point, 12 rebound, 10 assist masterclass, his Cavaliers team won numerous key battles across the floor too.

With just over four minutes to play in the first half, the Bucks took a three-point edge on Eric Bledsoe's triple.

"His ability to stretch the floor allows us to force other big men out of the paint", James said.
He played well, finishing with 18 points and seven rebounds in 24 minutes. Cristiano Felicio scored a career-high 17 points for the Bulls, who were missing their top three scorers and went 3-for-30 from 3-point range.

"I thought Jordan was playing well, being aggressive, so we chose to stay with him", Drew said. "He doesn't want to miss games, he doesn't want to miss practices", Drew said.

"I knew he was struggling, but he was never not himself".

The opening quarter saw neither team able to make much of a move after the Bucks had jumped out to an early 7-2 lead.

Love was pleased with the results in his first game since January 30.

"We were locked in", Clarkson said about the team's motivation.

Although the Cavaliers got Love back from injury, they were still without the services of center Tristan Thompson (sprained right ankle), guard Rodney Hood (lower back strain), small forward Cedi Osman (left hip flexor) and power forward Larry Nance Jr. Despite outshooting the Cavaliers from the field during the period, the Bucks found themselves dominated on the glass in the quarter by a commanding 13-3 lead, which helped the Cavs take a 93-85 advantage into the last period. A campaign that was always going to be defined by the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming free agency of LeBron James has become more like a death march, with Cleveland trudging from one issue to the next. But if he tells me to make a decision, then I'll have to make a decision.
