Kevin Love hurts shoulder after Kent Bazemore lands on it
Kevin Love gave Cleveland Cavaliers fans a scare when he hurt his shoulder after Kent Bazemore landed on it in the fourth quarter of Game 1 of his team’s Eastern Conference semifinals game against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.
Love tried leaning into Bazemore to draw a foul but ended up taking the brunt of some serious contact:

Keep in mind that Love dislocated his left shoulder last year in the first round of the playoffs. The last thing the Cavs need to see is him hurt his other shoulder in the playoffs this year.
Later in the game Love was hobbling after hurting his leg. LeBron meanwhile took an arm to the face trying to finish a layup in the fourth.
If the Hawks can’t beat ’em, at least they can beat ’em up!
