CLEVELAND (AP) — Kevin Love, picking up the offensive slack with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving out, scored 25 points and Dion Waiters added 23, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 106-100 exhibition win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
Love made five 3-pointers and also shook off banging his right knee while making a basket in the lane during the third quarter. He and Waiters spent the fourth quarter on the bench.
Bucks rookie Jabari Parker, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, scored 18 in 27 minutes. He and some of Milwaukee’s other starters played into the fourth quarter as first-year coach Jason Kidd worked on some things with his young team.
