Kevin Love: Feels like LeBron's Lakers 'could do something special'

LOS ANGELES -- LeBron James and Kevin Love shared an intricate postgame handshake -- a flurry of patted hands, fist pounds and high-fives -- then hugged and made their way to separate locker rooms.

The Los Angeles Lakers' 128-99 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday was the first time James and Love played against one another since James left Cleveland for L.A. as a free agent in the summer of 2018 after injuries caused James to miss one and Love to miss both of the two teams' matchups last season.

"It was different because it's been so long and we've been through so many battles with each other," Love told ESPN.
