Three Things to Know: Kevin Love, Cavaliers get knocked around by Heat

Since returning from his hand injury, Cleveland Cavaliers star Kevin Love had posted four-straight solid games before he took the floor against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night.

Early in the first quarter, Love slid over to the center of the key to try and take a charge as Heat center Jordan Mickey drove toward the hoop. He returned to the game but was held out after halftime because he was experiencing concussion-like symptoms.

"The only update is, when he got hit in the mouth in the first half, we saw there was some blood coming from his mouth".

Cleveland came in averaging 31 points per quarter over its last five games, then managed only 34 in the first half against the Heat. "I believe it was his tooth", Cavs acting head coach Larry Drew said.

"KD feels like he's ready to go - we're going to give him two extra days just to be safe", he said.

"And then, what hurt us more is that now, our rotations were kind of in disarray". Because he got there late, Love was called for the blocking foul, but that was the least of Love's problems. "Our rhythm was broke just right from the beginning".

According to McMenamin, Love will be re-evaluated on Wednesday morning. The player must also gradually resubmit to a series of physical activities, after which the team will submit their findings to Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, the league's concussion doctor.

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.
