CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Shortly after the Cleveland Cavaliers' one-point win against the Orlando Magic Thursday night, Kevin Love went back onto the court to get extra shots up inside the otherwise vacated arena.

Just last month, Love was enjoying one of his best stretches since joining the Cavaliers in 2014. He was flourishing as the second option while starting to get more comfortable playing center, a position he initially disliked. In 13 December games, he averaged 22.2 points on an efficient 48.5 percent from the field and a blistering 46.2 percent from 3-point range to go with 10.1 rebounds in 29.7 minutes. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
