We're about seven hours away from tipoff at Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Cavs just got some great news ahead of tipoff.
Kevin Love, who missed Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals while in concussion protocol, has been taken out of concussion protocol. He will be playing tonight.
The Cavs announced the news moments ago:
This is obviously big for Cleveland. Love's an All-Star and his ability to space the floor could be a major key against Golden State.
The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds a game during the regular season.
Love is averaging 13.9 points 10 rebounds a game during the postseason.
Game 1 is set to tip off at 9 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ABC.
Golden State enters the series as a massive favorite.
