Tyronn Lue says it would be ‘crazy’ to blame Kevin Love for Cavs’ struggles
Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is not buying the Kevin Love blame game.
Love played just three minutes in Cleveland’s 148-124 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last Saturday, citing an illness that some teammates did not believe was legitimate. For his part, Lue thinks it’s “crazy” that Love is being blamed in any way for the performance against the Thunder.
“I mean, that’s crazy,” Lue said, via Joe Vardon of cleveland.com. “If Kevin was out there we might have given up 170. Who knows, man. We’ve got to be better, got to just stay together. We’re being tested right now. This is when your true character comes out and the character of who you are as a person and as a player. We’ve got to step up and play basketball.”
