ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is getting the night off against the Orlando Magic.

Cleveland coach David Blatt says Love ''needed a little bit of rest.'' He adds that the move is in keeping with what the team is trying to do this season - resting a player when necessary. Blatt did not say who would start in Love's place Sunday night.

Love played 32 minutes in a victory over San Antonio on Thursday, but was just 2 for 10 from the field with eight points.

Blatt also said forward Shawn Marion will play. He has missed 10 straight games because of a left hip strain.
