Kevin Love now knows to expect the unexpected when he comes to Boston.
The Cleveland Cavaliers forward was hit in the face with a ball Wednesday at TD Garden during warm-ups before his team’s game against the Boston Celtics. Thankfully, J.R. Smith was standing nearby to save Love from going down hard.
Taking a ball to the face didn’t slow Love once the game started, as he had a double-double with 15 points and 16 rebounds in Cleveland’s dominant 114-91 win.
