Kevin Love is having himself a game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
In the first quarter, Love scored 34 points on 11-14 shooting overall with eight threes accounting for most of his points. The eight made three actually tie his career-high for threes made in a single quarter.
The 34 points are the best single-quarter total in Cavs history and also the second highest single-quarter total in league history. Love finished just short of Klay Thompson’s record of 37 points in a quarter.
