Already without starting center Tristan Thompson, the Cleveland Cavaliers nearly suffered another casualty before their showdown with the Boston Celtics.

During warmups an errant pass drilled Kevin Love in the face. Fortunately, J.R. Smith was on the scene to break his fall.

How shook up was Love? He had four points and eight rebounds in the first quarter.
