Loveless Cavs snap slide (1:07)

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavs have two games remaining before the All-Star break: Monday against SAC and Wednesday against LAL. Very winnable games. Question mark is CLE health. Kevin Love (L quad) is day to day; Matthew Dellavedova (L hamstring) could be kept out through the break, Lue said. "Delly's a tough guy. If it was up to me, I wouldn't let him play until after the All-Star break, but it would be hard to hold Delly out if he's feeling pretty good. I think the most important thing, for me, is just getting his health right going into the second stretch of the season."

Tyronn Lue on the NBA's last two minute report that determined J.R. Smith shouldn't have been called for a foul on Evan Turner late against Boston on Friday: "It's over now. I don't think that play had anything to do with it. I just think it was a bunch of things that led to that situation, so it happened. They say it wasn't a foul, but there's nothing we can do about it now."

Cavs offense not getting it done

Cleveland has dropped its last two games after a 5-1 start to the Tyronn Lue era. The Cavs' offense hasn't been as efficient in the back-to-back losses.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Kevin Love on his health status for Saturday's game vs. NOP: "I wasn't really concerned. It was just, I was looking at the basket, going up for the rebound and I think it was (Marcus) Smart hit me on the box out and I went right to the floor. Probably for about 10 minutes, it was dead leg. I don't know what it will feel like tomorrow but I'm optimistic that it's just a thigh bruise -- nothing else."

Lots of blame to go around to explain the Cavs losing that one: J.R Smith for fouling Evan Turner; the refs for calling that questionable call on Smith; Ty Lue for subbing Timofey Mozgov in place of Tristan Thompson to rebound on the Turner FT; Mozgov failing to grab the board when Turner missed; Cavs going 21-for-35 from the FT line.

Cavaliers 49, Celtics 43 (half): Rough first half for All-Star Isaiah Thomas who missed six of the seven shots he put up and had three turnovers. He also tweaked his ankle late in the first quarter, but got re-taped and returned in the second. Former Cavs big man Tyler Seller scored eight points off the bench to help Boston rally back after falling behind by double digits in less than three minutes.
