Report: Isaiah Thomas led charge against Kevin Love
Is one of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ newcomers part of the reason for the issues with Kevin Love? That’s what one report is saying.
The New York Daily News’ Frank Isola reported in a column on Tuesday that Thomas was the driving force behind the Cavaliers’ issues with Love.
A source told The News that Isaiah Thomas led the charge against Love, who turned up ill for Saturday’s embarrassing loss to Oklahoma City and went home after playing just three minutes.
Love played just three minutes in the Cavs’ blowout loss to the Thunder on Saturday night and left because of an illness. He then missed Sunday’s practice. The Cavs then had an emotional meeting on Monday in which the legitimacy of Love’s illness was questioned.
Love seems to be taking the blame for the Cavs’ recent downturn, which actually coincides with Thomas finally making his season debut. Love’s minutes and stats have been down across the board since Thomas joined the starting lineup.
