What are the Cavs chances in the East now? It will be interesting to see where they get seeded.

Quote:
Cavaliers forward Kevin Love left Tuesday's game against the Pistons with a fracture in his left hand. "He received X-rays at the arena which revealed a non-displaced fracture in his left hand fifth metacarpal," the Cavaliers said in a statement.


Quote:
Heading into Tuesday's contest, Love had been averaging 18.2 points and 9.6 rebounds per game, while shooting at a career-high 40 percent from long range. The 29-year-old earned his fifth All-Star selection earlier this month and was chosen to be a member of Team LeBron during the 67th NBA All-Star Game.

Kevin Love is such an overrated player. Even when he's not injured, he doesn't contribute all that much.

The weird thing is that Kevin Love has missed games before due to injury and the Cavs still won most of their games without him. That team is stacked offensively. I have this strange feeling that they won't be missing him much. They might miss his rebounding a little, but that's it.

Offensively, they'll be fine. Their problems are defense. And Love really didn't contribute much there, so they probably won't miss him that much.

Ah so averaging 18/10 while playing out of position and shooting 40% from three isn't contributing much.

Yeah, they sure won't miss that production with Channing Frye taking over

A team as deep offensively as the Cavs can probably make up those 18 points a game. Not sure if they can make up for those 10 rebounds a game though.

Channing Frye is better than you think In the first two games without Love he averaged 18-5 and 6-for-11 on threes. So, like I said, points and shooting won't be the issue. That doesn't mean Love isn't a good player; it's a reflection of the Cavs depth.
