CLEVELAND — Cleveland's old man, Kevin Love, is relishing his new role with the surprising Cavaliers.

The five-time All-Star's acceptance of being a part-time player has helped fuel the Cavs rise this season.

He scored 20 points in a win over New York on Monday night, a victory that pushed Cleveland 10 games over .500 for the first time since 2018.

At 33, Love has found some peace after several turbulent, injury-filled seasons.

He's embracing a chance to lead one of the league's best young teams.

The Cavs have credited Love's selfless move to the bench with helping bond them.
