F Kevin Love missed Thursday's 118-103 victory over Phoenix with a sore back. Love was considered a game-time decision after he missed the second half of Monday's blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors. He didn't believe he'd miss any time, but he didn't participate in contact drills during Wednesday's practice and then couldn't make it through Thursday's morning shootaround. The Cavaliers aren't yet concerned about Love, believing rest is all he needs. It's the fifth game Love has missed this season and he would seem to be questionable for Saturday's big home game against the San Antonio Spurs.

I got your help. I should have taken the shot anyway."
