Kevin Love watching Game 7 from back room in TD Garden
Kevin Love is not playing in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals due to concussion symptoms, but that does not mean he will not be around to support his team.
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin says that Love is in Boston to watch Game 7 and will be watching from a room in the back.
Kevin Love is at TD Garden for Game 7. He’ll watch the action in a room in the back. To say the least, this circumstance has him bummed out, but he’s hopeful there will be a game for him to play in on Thursday.

Love has had some rotten luck with fluke injuries this season. He broke his hand on a fluky play, jammed his thumb against the Pacers and took an elbow to the face in the same series, and then he got hit in the head by Jayson Tatum early in Game 6.
Even if the Cleveland Cavaliers win Game 7 in Boston, there are no guarantees that Love would be cleared from NBA concussion protocol for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
