The Cleveland Cavaliers had Love in Friday's starting line-up as the team took on the Washington Wizards in D.C.at 7 p.m. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our NBA Public Betting Page for updated figures on the game.
Kevin Love #0 of the Cleveland Cavaliers shoots over Alex Poythress #22 and Kent Bazemore #24 of the Atlanta Hawks during the second half at Quicken Loans Arena on October 21, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Cavs say this was the plan as Love was under a minutes restriction. He is listed as questionable to play tonight.
Love last played October 24 and underwent surgery on his left foot shortly after.
The Washington Wizards are coming off a 148-129 loss at Milwaukee on Wednesday for their third straight loss.
Washington led by six to start the fourth quarter, and a Portis 3-pointer put the Wizards ahead 106-96 with 6:05 remaining. Washington comes into this game at 22-32 overall, 15-11 at home, 23-31 against the spread and 32-22 with the over. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.3 rebounds per game. Bradley Beal is averaging 24.9 points and 5.1 rebounds while Trevor Ariza is averaging 14.8 points and 4.3 assists.
The Cavaliers have covered the spread in four straight conference games and six of their last seven on two days of rest.
The Wizards have not been looking good as of late and just lost at Cleveland 116-113 on January 29. The Cavs are certainly not a talented team, but they have been playing competitively lately. So, while there's better options on Friday's card, it's Wizards or pass for me.
