Cavaliers forward Kevin Love: 'I need to find myself'
The 6-foot-10 forward finished with 10 points on 33.3 percent shooting in the loss. From ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin:
"It's come to a point where I'm just trying to find myself in this offense," Love said after his lowest scoring output this season. "It's almost related to when you come into the league; usually the guys that dominate the ball so much tend to learn a lot quicker than a guy like myself, a big man. So, I'm just trying to find different spots in the offense.
"I'll just say we're 10 games in, we're looking at different stuff. I need to find myself. I think everybody knew coming in that we'd have to sacrifice, but at some point we're going to need some low-post scoring and some outside shooting."
Over 10 games this season, Love has averaged 16.7 points and 13.1 field goal attempts per game -- significant decreases from the numbers he posted in those categories (26.1 ppg, 18.5 fga) over 77 games last season.
The Cavaliers play at Washington (7-3) on Friday.
