Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Milwaukee Bucks player grades

The Cavaliers dominated the Bucks in Kevin Love’s return.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Kevin Love returns from his injury and all is right again with this world. Coincidence? I think not.

LeBron James: A+

Three triple-doubles in four games? 17 points in the third quarter? Yes and yes.

Kevin Love: A-

Love returns from injury to a 18-point, seven-rebound performance. What else do you need from your All-Star power forward?

Jordan Clarkson: A-

Clarkson continues to be the bench scorer that the Cavaliers desperately needed all season, adding 17 points, including three three-pointers.

Ante Zizic: A-

Zizic’s game has been consistent on the offensive end, but his movement and activity defensively was fantastic tonight against the Bucks’ big men.

Kyle Korver: B

While Korver hit 50 percent of his three-point attempts tonight, it was his gravity that allowed for other players to find easy buckets.

Jose Calderon: B-

A pro’s pro. Didn’t make any mistakes tonight when his number was called on as the backup point guard.

Jeff Green: B-

Green was effective in the starting lineup, scoring an efficient 14 points, but did not grab a single rebound.

George Hill: C

Zero points, but a weirdly effective game from Hill.

J.R. Smith: C-

The J.R. Smith experience continues to be a roller coaster, but his number of shot attempts seem to be the most concerning number.
