Love was called for a blocking foul less than two minutes into the game when he collided with the Heat's Jordan Mickey.

Cleveland will take on a unsafe Hornets team, who has won the last four games and has two of their key players in Kemba Walker and Dwight Howard finishing out the season with great confidence, picking up a historic win over the Memphis Grizzlies last week.

Love later showed some concussion-like symptoms at halftime and was held out of the second half for precautionary reasons. He is OUT for Tuesday's game in Charlotte vs. the Hornets and his status will be updated as appropriate. "Missed shots early. And we allowed their pressure to take us out of some of the stuff we wanted to do".

"When we had our looks, we had some really good looks, we just couldn't knock them down".
