80 percent of fans polled in Cleveland want Kevin Love benched


In a recent poll done by Cleveland.com 80 percent of readers say Richard Jefferson should start over Kevin Love. Jefferson had 9 points and 8 rebounds in 33 minutes in the Game 3 win over the Warriors.

Love was a full participant in Friday's shootaround prior to tonight's Game 4 matchup with Golden State in the NBA Finals.

He will be reevaluated closer to game time to see if he's cleared to play, according to ESPN.

With Love in the lineup in Games 1 and 2, Cleveland was blown out by Golden State but without Love in the lineup in Game 3, the Cavaliers won by 30 points.

Even if Love is cleared, head coach Tyronn Lue may have Love come off the bench instead of being in the starting lineup, Ohio.com says.
