Kevin Love ended his slump with an efficient game-high 25 points on 8-for-10 shooting. Leading the Cavaliers to a blowout win over Toronto in just 24 minutes of work to give the Cavs a 3-2 series lead.
“I just think it’s trust,” said Lue, explaining Love’s turnaround. “I think it’s trust. When he feels the guys trust him, he trusts the guys. I think that’s the biggest thing. When you’re part of a team, you trust one another. He feels that trust and he feels that love. That’s why he’s opened up more and you can see more of who Kevin Love really is.”
