Love Returns, Scores 18 In Cavs’ Win vs. Bucks – All-Star forward Kevin Love scored 18 points in his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers’ lineup Monday night after missing 21 games with a broken left hand. Love went 5-for-13 from the field and 4-for-4 from the free throw line in his first game since Jan. 30. He added seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks as the Cavs beat the Bucks 124-117. “I felt pretty good,” he said. “Initially, that first wind is always tough, but even after that I felt like my legs were underneath me and that I could’ve played a little bit more.” Love had scans on his hand Monday morning and then went through a full practice before acting head coach Larry Drew officially announced his return.
