Kevin Love was looking for some camaraderie from LeBron James, but was read the riot act instead.
All Kevin Love wanted was a high five.
In the first quarter of the Cavaliers Game 5 win over the Warriors on Monday night, Love went up to LeBron James looking to celebrate Tristan Thompson’s offensive rebound, which turned into a trip to the free throw line. But the Cleveland leader had other things on his mind and what Love got instead was a talking to from the former MVP.
Things didn’t get much better for Love in the game, as he went just 1-for-5 from the floor, with two points and three rebounds in 33 minutes. Thankfully for the Cavs, LeBron and Kyrie Irving both put up 41 points, which prevented Golden State from clinching the NBA title at home.
