Cavaliers' Love sitting out final game before All-Star break

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers forward Kevin Love sat out Wednesday night's game against Brooklyn, but plans to increase his playing time following the All-Star break.

Love didn't play the final game before the break to get further rest following foot surgery.

Love played nearly 16 minutes, scoring 14 points with nine rebounds, in Monday's win over New York.

He said following the game that he thought he'd play Wednesday, but realizes it's important to not rush things.

"He's in a really good place right now both physically and mentally," Cavaliers coach Larry Drew said.

Love said his foot feels fine, but thinks getting his stamina back is the top priority at this point.
