Kevin Love scored a team-high 21 points (7/17 FG, 1/4 PT, 6/6 FT), grabbed 11 boards and dished out three assists in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 99-128 loss over the Anthony Davis-less Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Monday night. The Cavaliers fell to 12-28. Love and LeBron James met on the court for the first time since Lebron left Cleveland for the Lakers.

“It was different because it’s been so long and we’ve been through so many battles with each other. I’m not going to say it felt normal, but I feel like we were both out there competing and playing hard, but seeing him play with that team is obviously different. Especially, even I didn’t get to see him with AD (Anthony Davis) and it still feels like they could do something special,” Love said, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
