Cleveland Cavs DFS Notes

Kevin Love finished Monday’s win over New York with 20 points, 11 boards, three dimes and a steal across 24 minutes. Even with Jarrett Allen and Lauri Markkanen out of action, Love didn’t crack the starting five. He’s only started twice all season, most recently on Dec. 30, though he's excelled in a bench role in 2021-22. Love provided his seventh double-double of the season and first since Dec. 31 when he put up 35 and 11 against the Hawks. It's been all "Good Vibrations" from the Beach Boys' nephew, as he's ranked just outside the top-100 on the season in limited minutes.
