The Cavaliers have been on a roll of late, winning their last 11 games straight. But even though they’re climbing the standings in the East, all may not be well the squad. Kevin Love hasn’t been shooting the ball particularly well of late and LeBron James has a theory: he thinks Love’s confidence is shot.
LeBron James suggested there were more shots available for Love that he turned down and questioned whether his teammate’s confidence might be shaken.
“I think Kev had some shots that he passed up on,” James said. “Maybe he felt that he just wasn’t in a good rhythm, but I know I hit him with a few [potential] shots after the first quarter where he had some good looks when he decided to swing-swing [with a pass], which is OK, it kept the ball moving. So, I think for Kev, I think his confidence maybe shooting the ball is a little down, but for me as a player, I get him good looks. I want him to shoot the ball and he needs to shoot it with confidence.”
