NBA Finals 2016: Kevin Love not medically cleared for Game 3

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been outclassed in the first two games of the NBA Finals. They look to turn things around when returning home for Game 3, but they will be without big man Kevin Love.

ESPN’s Marc Stein reported that Love will not be medically cleared to play in tonight’s matchup against the Golden State Warriors. He is reportedly dealing with a concussion he suffered in the Game 2 loss.

The Cavaliers might, surprising, benefit from being without Love, who has played pitifully through the first two games of the Finals. He only recorded five points and three rebounds in Game 2 after having a pretty good start to the series by locking down a double-double with 17 points and 13 rebounds.

It will be interesting to see how Kevin Love’s absence from the game affects the Cavaliers throughout the rest of the Finals. The game tips off at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
