He finished with a game-high 25 points on 8-for-10 shooting — even tacking on two blocks and a steal on the defensive end — in just 24 minutes. His night ended early again, just like it did in Games 3 and 4, but under vastly different circumstances, as Cleveland led by 40 headed into the final frame. “Before we get started,” Lue said in his opening remarks at the postgame podium, “I know Kevin didn’t play in the fourth quarter, so you don’t have to ask it. Next question.”
“[Frye] called me and said, ‘Live in the moment, first of all,’” Love told ESPN.com. “He’s like, ‘You’re 27 years old, you’re playing in the Eastern Conference finals.’ He goes, ‘We don’t care if you 0-for-25. Just be aggressive, make an impact on the game and go out there and play hard. Let’s get a win.’ But he also told me no one is immune to the NBA playoffs, either. That kind of stuff happens. There’s different ways to impact the game. There’s different ways to get the job done. That was a big deal for me to hear that come from him.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said he hurt himself when he stepped on a referee’s foot near the end of the third quarter, before he sat out the fourth quarter for the second straight game Monday in a Game 4 loss to the Toronto Raptors. Love, who struggled in both losses in Toronto, missed 10 of 14 shots and had only 10 points as the Raptors held off Cleveland 105-99 on Monday night to even the series at 2-2. Love said his knee injury will not prevent him from playing in Game 5 on Wednesday. “I think Kyrie [Irving] was shooting towards the end of the third quarter, and I stepped on the official’s foot, and it didn’t feel too great,” said Love, who had a total of 13 points and 11 rebounds in Games 3 and 4. “More so the knee [than the ankle hurting]. Will be sore tomorrow, but nothing that will prevent me from playing.”
