Cavs' Love to play, Smith out with knee injury

CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is playing Friday against Miami after missing the morning shootaround with lower back spasms.

Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith is missing his second straight game because of a hyperextended left knee.

Love took shots on the court about an hour before tipoff and went through pregame warmups. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said Love's back "locked up" on him during Wednesday's win in New York.
