CLEVELAND: The night began with Cleveland saying farewell to Kobe Bryant. Now Cavaliers fans can only hope they aren’t waving goodbye to Kevin Love, too.
Love left the game in the final minute Wednesday with a left shoulder injury and did not return in the Cavaliers’ 120-111 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers in both teams’ final game before the All-Star break. It is the same shoulder Love had surgically repaired last spring after he dislocated it in a playoff series against the Boston Celtics.
