The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-1 in their NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Chicago Bulls.

They have so far survived a season-ending shoulder injury to Kevin Love and a two-game suspension to J.R. Smith.

Tonight, the Cavs get Smith back but there is another obstacle in their way.

Head coach David Blatt says that the team could be without the services of Iman Shumpert for the Game 3 matchup in Chicago.

Shumpert is recovering from a strained groin injury suffered in the second half of Game 2, a 106-91 blowout by the Cavs at home on Wednesday.

The 6’5, 220-pound, 24-year-old Shumpert, a sharpshooting guard, made four 3-point baskets and 15 points filling in for Smith. Shumpert also played well in Game 1, netting 22 points.

Everyone who follows the Cavaliers, media and fans, all agree that the January 5 trade with the New York Knicks that brought J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert gave the team the needed push and it has resulted in 16 wins in 18 games and the team to a 35-22 record and a definitely threat in the Eastern Conference.

Sunday afternoon, Smith and Shumpert made their first return to the Big Apple and played well in Cleveland’s 101-83 win over the Knicks.

Smith scored 17 points and Shumpert came off the bench for four points, five rebounds and seven assists.

Sunday’s game was really over early as the Cavs built up a 36-17 lead in the first quarter and a 62-38 advantage at the half. From there, it was just a matter of what the final score would be.

Cleveland’s big three pulled their weight as well.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each scored 18 points and Kevin Love finished with 16 points while hauling down 16 rebounds. James during the game moved past Allen Iverson and into 22nd place on the NBA career scoring list with 24,383 points.

The Knicks, who have had several losing streaks this season with a 10-45 record, have now lost seven in a row, were led by Langston Galloway with 13 points.

No surgery for Timberwolves’ star Love

The Minnesota Timberwolves have announced that star forward Kevin Love will not require surgery to repair two broken bones in his right hand.

The former UCLA Bruin met with specialists in New York a couple of days ago after breaking his hand while doing knuckle pushups in a morning practice session. Doctors told Love that the injury can heal itself without surgery.

He is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

The T-Wolves will definitely miss Love, who is a rebounding machine. Head Coach Rick Adelman said that he’ll experiment with different players at Love’s position realizing that the same production is tough to match.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love just had a feeling Friday night that he would be able to grab 30 rebounds against the New York Knicks. He told teammate Michael Beasley that he was going for 30 rebounds.

By the end of the game, the 6’10, 260-pound center had grabbed a franchise-record 31 rebounds and scored 31 points in a 112-103 win over the startled New York Knicks.

The Timberwolves rallied from a 21-point deficit in the third quarter against the still-not-yet-improved, Knicks.

Love’s 30-30 game was the first in the NBA in 28 years.

At halftime, Love was just 2 of 8 from the floor.
