LeBron James and Kyrie Irving stole the show last night by combining for 82 points in Cleveland's Game 5 win over the Warriors, but nobody is overlooking the fact that Kevin Love finished the game with 2 points and 3 rebounds in 33 minutes.

It was so bad for Love that everyone on the internet has been sharing a video that appears to show Love excitedly approaching LeBron for a high-five, but instead getting yelled at by LeBron. But as Deadspin points out, that's not what happened.

"Love wasn’t looking for any affirmation from James, he was having a heated discussion about the previous play. In a longer clip, you can see that Love puts his hand in the air to demonstrate a basketball move:"

Love had eight straight double doubles in the Cavaliers' first two rounds of the playoffs, both sweeps over the Pistons and Hawks. He missed Game 3 of the Finals with concussion-like symptoms before returning to the court (off the bench) in Game 4. Whatever the reason is for Love's unproductive Game 5, it's not the first time he's thrown up a dud this season.

  • May 21: 3 points, 4 rebounds against Toronto
  • Feb. 24: 8 points, 2 rebounds against Charlotte
  • Jan. 18: 3 points, 6 rebounds against Golden State

The reality here is that Love's non-high-five with Wes Johnson during their Timberwolf days is the most awkward high-five gone wrong in Love's career.
