Kevin Love remains on track to play in the Oct. 27 regular season opener at the Chicago Bulls, but Kyrie Irving won’t be ready, coach David Blatt confirmed Tuesday. “That would be fair and realistic,” Blatt said. ove is participating in 3 on 3 drills this week and the Cavs hope he will be cleared for full practices by the weekend. Blatt has already ruled him out for this week’s preseason games at Cincinnati on Wednesday (against the Atlanta Hawks) and at the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday. But Blatt has previously said the plan is for Love to play in preseason games at some point this month.
His conclusion? He’s still going to attack with his array of moves, but he’s limiting how much he takes it all the way to the basket. “Man, I couldn’t move last year in the playoffs, so I was thinking about the moves I was making and I wasn’t necessarily finishing because I didn’t have the balance underneath,” Irving said. “So, I was thinking about how to avoid that and, ‘How do I change that?’ and that’s becoming more efficient in the midrange area. I’m pretty decent in the midrange now, so for me it’s just about how do I get there in as few dribbles and stay off the ground going in there all of the time.
