And yet, on Thursday, Love validated James’ belief in him. He buried Boston on a 3-pointer with 26 seconds remaining on a kick-out pass from James, and he picked up the slack for Kyrie Irving (13 points, 3-for-11 shooting).

The organization has my back. I’m sending love right back to them. I think tonight was one of those times my numbers was called to step up and hit a big shot.”
