Analysis: Love appeared headed for a big night with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving both out, but he couldn't find his form. The All-Star forward is shooting just 39.4 percent on the road this season.
Feb. 25 9:27 PM PT10:27 PM MT11:27 PM CT12:27 AM ET5:27 GMT13:27 10:27 PM MST12:27 AM EST9:27 UAE06:270:27 ET11:27 PM CT4:27 - Love scored a team-high 24 points in Tuesday's 102-93 win at Detroit.
Analysis: It was a big night for Love, who matched a career high with eight made 3s on 14 attempts. While he's averaging a disappointing 16.9 points, Love is still finding ways to produce for fantasy owners.
Feb. 11 8:34 PM PT9:34 PM MT10:34 PM CT11:34 PM ET4:34 GMT12:34 9:34 PM MST11:34 PM EST8:34 UAE05:3423:34 ET10:34 PM CT2:34 - Love was back on the floor Friday.
Analysis: Love sat out last Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bulls because of an abrasion in his right eye.
Jan. 31 10:00 PM PT11:00 PM MT12:00 AM CT1:00 AM ET6:00 GMT14:00 11:00 PM MST1:00 AM EST10:00 UAE07:001:00 ET12:00 AM CT4:00 - Love had 23 points and 10 rebounds for his 26th double-double Friday against the Kings.
Analysis: Love had been averaging just 13.3 points on 34.0 percent shooting over his last eight games, so perhaps this is a sign that better times are ahead for owners.
Jan. 17 10:40 PM PT11:40 PM MT12:40 AM CT1:40 AM ET6:40 GMT14:40 11:40 PM MST1:40 AM EST10:40 UAE07:401:40 ET12:40 AM CT4:40 - Love returned with 16 points and 12 boards Monday in a big win over Chicago.

Jan. 5 8:16 PM PT9:16 PM MT10:16 PM CT11:16 PM ET4:16 GMT12:16 9:16 PM MST11:16 PM EST8:16 UAE05:1623:16 ET10:16 PM CT2:16 - Love scored 28 points and grabbed 19 rebounds Monday in Cleveland's loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: Despite the numbers, chalk this up as a poor performance from Love. Both LeBron James and Kyrie Irving were sidelined with injury, and Love could not propel the Cavs past lowly Philadelphia. He has scored 29.0 points over his last two games.
Dec. 31 8:29 PM PT9:29 PM MT10:29 PM CT11:29 PM ET4:29 GMT12:29 9:29 PM MST11:29 PM EST8:29 UAE05:2923:29 ET10:29 PM CT2:29 - Love returned Friday and scored 27 points in a win over Charlotte.

Dec. 16 10:01 PM PT11:01 PM MT12:01 AM CT1:01 AM ET6:01 GMT14:01 11:01 PM MST1:01 AM EST10:01 UAE07:011:01 ET12:01 AM CT4:01 - Love finished with 22 points and 18 rebounds in Monday's win over Charlotte.

Analysis: Love, who came into the game averaging 16.5 points, scored 16 in the first quarter. He made his first five shots, including two 3-pointers.

Nov. 23 10:50 PM PT11:50 PM MT12:50 AM CT1:50 AM ET6:50 GMT14:50 11:50 PM MST1:50 AM EST10:50 UAE07:501:50 ET12:50 AM CT4:50 - Love had a season-high 23 points in Saturday's loss to Toronto.
Analysis: Fantasy owners are surely hoping this is a sign of things to come for Love, who's averaging just 16.5 points. He's also pulling down just 9.9 boards per game, his lowest mark since averaging 9.1 as a rookie in 08-09.
Nov. 20 10:02 PM PT11:02 PM MT12:02 AM CT1:02 AM ET6:02 GMT14:02 11:02 PM MST1:02 AM EST10:02 UAE07:021:02 ET12:02 AM CT4:02 - Love was held to a season-low 10 points in a 92-90 loss to San Antonio on Wednesday.
Analysis: The Cleveland forward missed eight of 12 shots and is shooting 38.9 percent in his first 10 games this season. He's averaging 16.7 points, his fewest since his second season in the league, 2009-10.
Nov. 18 10:03 PM PT11:03 PM MT12:03 AM CT1:03 AM ET6:03 GMT14:03 11:03 PM MST1:03 AM EST10:03 UAE07:031:03 ET12:03 AM CT4:03 - Love had 20 points and 11 rebounds in Monday's surprising loss to Denver.

Nov. 15 9:04 PM PT10:04 PM MT11:04 PM CT12:04 AM ET5:04 GMT13:04 10:04 PM MST12:04 AM EST9:04 UAE06:040:04 ET11:04 PM CT3:04 - Love had 12 points and 15 boards Friday.
Analysis: Love was a pathetic 2-of-10 from the floor and his field-goal percentage is an embarrassing 37.2 percent. He needs to step it up for owners.

Analysis: Love is a tremendous asset both in real life and in fantasy because even when he struggles with his shot, 10-plus rebounds are all but a guarantee.
Oct. 31 10:56 PM PT11:56 PM MT12:56 AM CT1:56 AM ET5:56 GMT13:56 10:56 PM MST12:56 AM EST9:56 UAE06:561:56 ET11:56 PM CT3:56 - Love had 19 points and 14 rebounds in his Cleveland debut, a 95-90 loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday.
Analysis: Love has averaged 17.9 points in the last five seasons against Cleveland's next opponent, Chicago. That's tied for his second-lowest versus any opponent. He's also shot 40.2 percent in those games, his third-worst mark since 2009-10.

The Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers completed a delayed blockbuster trade Saturday that's been talked about for months and on hold for 30 days.
Analysis: Love, arguably the game's best power forward, is headed from Minnesota to Cleveland, where he will join James and instantly make the Cavs an NBA title favorite, two persons with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.
July 18 6:32 AM PT7:32 AM MT8:32 AM CT9:32 AM ET13:32 GMT21:32 6:32 AM MST8:32 AM EST17:32 UAE15:329:32 ET8:32 AM CT12:32 - The Cavaliers continue to pursue Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love.

The person requested anonymity because both teams are not publicly commenting on trade discussions.
