Kevin Love says series against the Pacers will be a 'physical battle'

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Kevin Love and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers are getting ready for the series against the Indiana Pacers. Love talked about the Cavs vs. Pacers matchup.

"We know this is a physical battle for us, a team that's going to throw different lineups, play big, small," Love said.

The Cavs forward says he is in shape for the start of the playoffs.

"That first win, getting out in game one is going to be a blowout session. Where you need to just get the lungs back, and get that second wind and get rolling," Love said.

Love agrees with Coach Lue's message, defense is going to be the focus.

"A lot of time playoff basketball is played in half court ,either way whether we're around in transition or playing the half court, if we play with pace we're going to be better, but it all starts on the defensive end," Lue said.
