Late in the first quarter of Sunday's 108-98 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, a disoriented Kevin Love went to the foul line. The Cavaliers' power forward looked out of sorts as he missed his first free throw. He then got the attention of team trainer Steve Spiro to signal something was wrong. He stayed in the game and knocked down the second free throw. As he trotted back on defense, it seemed as if he was himself again. After the game, Love revealed what he was going through earlier in the contest. "Everything was spinning there for a little bit," Love told Northeast Ohio Media Group. "It just happened. I was a little shocked. It was a scary moment, but I was good after that." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Allen is making it known that he wants to return to the NBA, and his list of suitors is growing.

Bobby Brown, whose contract with Dongguan Leopards includes an NBA out, could be available for NBA teams on February 1 since his club is no lock to make the postseason. Brown, who has experience in the NBA with Sacramento, Minnesota, New Orleans and LA Clippers, would be more than open to playing for the Cavaliers. "Right now, I'm focused on Dongguan and winning games with my teammates," Brown told HoopsHype. "I will say this about Cleveland: How could anyone not want to play with LeBron? First off, he is the best player in the league and second, you have a chance to be a part of a championship team. Plus, playing in Europe, I was a big fan of (David) Blatt and always wanted to play for him. Also, I have known (David Griffin) since I was in the draft and have always been a huge believer in him."

General Manager David Griffin was trying to trade for Timofey Mozgov long before he hired David Blatt as coach. His quest for the 7-foot-1 Russian began within weeks of Griffin replacing Chris Grant as general manager on Feb. 6, 2014. But Denver was not interested. That changed three weeks ago when Griffin turned Dion Waiters and a future Memphis first-round pick into J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Mozgov -- it took two trades in three days.

Under the condition of anonymity, some Cavs players admitted that they had lost faith because of the team's lack of depth. A handful of players said they came to realize the roster, as it was constructed before the trades, wasn't equipped to go any further than the second round, if that. One player said the frustration of an "unbalanced roster probably contributed" to the players' poor body language and effort level. Another said "it was never Coach [David] Blatt's fault." The consensus was that their confidence had faltered considerably more because of the shallowness of the team's reserve talent than Blatt. Cleveland Plain Dealer
