On Thursday night, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue unveiled his new-look second unit. Derrick Rose was back in the mix after missing more than two months recovering from an ankle injury. While the Cavaliers were certainly excited about his return, seeing how hard he worked to overcome his latest setback, it caused another shakeup with Lue’s ever-changing rotation. The new five-man group features Rose and Dwyane Wade together once again — a combination that didn’t work very well in October — along with Kyle Korver, Jeff Green and Tristan Thompson.
Kevin Love finished with 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting with 11 rebounds and 2 assists. He had only four shot attempts in the second half as the Cavs shot just 13-for-40 as a team (32.5 percent). Three Cavs players had more attempts than him after halftime — Isaiah Thomas (nine), LeBron James (seven) and Jeff Green (seven) — and Derrick Rose tied him with four shot attempts. “I know Kevin is playing the 5 and sometimes he has 5s guarding him, but we still got to be able to get him touches and involve him in the game,” Tyronn Lue said. “I thought tonight he was great defensively, but we didn’t use him as much as we should have. But he still played through the game, and I thought he was great. But even in those offensive lulls, we got to still post him against 5s and just see what he can do down there.”
