The Cleveland Cavaliers snapped their three-game winning streak against the Boston Celtics and they are on a back-to-back with Kevin Love returning to Minnesota. Live was the team’s best player in that match as he registered 30 points, seven rebounds and dropped six three-point shots. Collin Sexton tallied 21 points while Kevin Porter Jr has become a great player off the bench with 16 points. Tristan Thompson’s double-double slump continues as he just did 12 points and seven rebounds. Against Minnesota, all eyes on how Kevin Love will perform and expect the Cavs to rid his lead in this game.

Ryan Covington’s numbers are back as he did 15 points and nine rebounds. Andrew Wiggins provided the second scoring punch for the T-Wolves with 21 points and eight rebounds.
