Article Summary:

For Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love, getting back from a right calf injury that had limited him to just two games prior to Friday night’s 116-82 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans became more of a mental hurdle than anything.

“Just playing basketball, that’s what I love to do. It’s so much a part of me,” Love told reporters after the game.

“Now I’m just hoping these next couple of few weeks, I’ll get the wind underneath me. I’ll get to start feeling like myself again and won’t be as sore. A lot of that calf pain has subsided. I’m hoping a lot more of my lift will come back in the meantime.”

Cavaliers coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Love will be an important piece of the puzzle to the team for the rest of the season.

Shooting percentages aside, all that mattered to Love was that he was back playing basketball again.
