Love finished with 13 points (4-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 116-86 victory over the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Love did not have his shot falling Saturday but still managed to rack up some nice stats in the blowout victory. He has been basically the only Cavaliers player besides LeBron James who has contributed in a positive manner during this series and he was able to relax in this one as the role players chipped in across the board. Game Four is on Monday in Cleveland and Love will need to continue his solid play if the Cavaliers are to level the series at 2-2.

Love had 22 points (9-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 107-94 loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Love was solid Tuesday but was practically the only Cavaliers player outside of LeBron James who turned up to play. The lack of depth has proven to be a glaring weakness for the Cavaliers, especially in this series so far. The team will get a few nights off before Game Three moves to Cleveland on Saturday and Love will need to be at his best yet again if the Cavaliers are to come away with the victory.

Love tallied 17 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes during Cleveland's 108-83 loss to the Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Love's scoring total did lead the Cavaliers on the afternoon, but that was small consolation given the blowout defeat they suffered. The veteran forward's scoring total dipped under 20 points for the first time since Game 1 versus the Raptors, which was also the last game his shooting percentage had been under 50.0 percent until Sunday. He'll look to sharpen up and help Cleveland even up the series in Tuesday's Game 2.

Love delivered 21 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 38 minutes during Cleveland's 105-103 win over the Raptors in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Love has now put together back-to-back stellar efforts after a multi-game stretch of subpar offensive play in which he shot particularly poorly. The veteran forward has rediscovered his accuracy, draining 18 of his 35 attempts over the last pair of contests. He's been dominant on the glass in all three games against the Raptors, as well, hauling in between 11 and 16 rebounds thus far in the series. He'll look to duplicate his efforts when the Cavs try for a series sweep in Monday's Game 4.

Love recorded 31 points (11-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 35 minutes during a 128-110 win over the Raptors on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Love had by far his best performance of these playoffs during the Game 2 victory. The 31-point double-double explosion came after he had shot worse than 40 percent from the field in each of the last five games. Based on his struggles during the playoffs so far, a repeat performance doesn't seem likely, but this outing could be a sign that he's back on the right track.

Love finished with just seven points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), and seven rebounds in 24 minutes during Friday's 121-87 loss to Indiana.

EDGE Analysis

Love was terrible Friday with no real way to sugarcoat his performance. He did fall on his arm during the game and while he was down for some time, he played through it, perhaps to the detriment of the team. Hopefully, he is ok and can suit up on Sunday, but he will need to find his form if the Cavaliers hope to win through to the second-round of the playoffs.

Love contributed 11 points (2-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 98-95 win over the Pacers.

EDGE Analysis

Love is now four for his past 21 from the floor in the last two contests, as he has been off the mark with all of his attempts of late. His main contribution is being able to rebound and spread the floor for LeBron on offense, but it would be a nice addition if he could start sinking some shots that he is set up nicely for.

Love managed just five points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block across 29 minutes during Cleveland's 104-100 win over the Pacers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Love made up for his poorest shooting effort and lowest scoring tally of the series with an impressive performance on the glass. The 29-year-old's rebounding total checked in second only to LeBron James' on the Cavs, and he's now generated double-digit boards twice over the first four games against the Pacers. Love will look to considerably improve his 36.2 series shooting percentage in Wednesday's critical Game 5.

Love tallied 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 38 minutes during a 92-90 loss to the Pacers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Love had his most effective game of the series in the loss as he shot the ball well after struggling across the first two games. On the down side, the six rebounds did mark a below-average effort and the four turnovers marked his highest total of the series so far. Love is hot from downtown to start the series, at 8-of-17 across the first three outings.

Love said X-rays on his left thumb came back negative following Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Pacers , Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Love jammed his thumb late in the fourth quarter of Game 2 and ended up sitting out for the three and a half minutes as a result, finishing the game with 15 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and eight rebounds across 34 minutes. Coach Ty Lou stated after the game that the big man will be good to go for Game 3 on Friday, and Love confirmed that notion, noting that it will hurt, but he'll wrap it up and play.
