Staying on the hardwood but making a Trans-Pacific hop, the Cleveland Cavaliers came into their contest against the Portland Trail Blazers looking to maintain a two-game cushion atop the Eastern Conference. And Kevin Love would open the night in record setting fashion, as the reigning champions tried to craft a forgettable ending to a miserable road trip, for the visitors from the West.

Kyrie Irving finds Love early, and he puts the hosts up 5-2.

LeBron James would finish with a triple double, one of his 13 assists on this pass, as Love drills one of his eight three pointers. LBJ also has 31 points and 13 boards, but it's all about Love in the opening Q.

California Love continues to get open on his way to 40 points, including an NBA first quarter record of 34, as Irving sets him up for another trey. The Cavs go on to win by a dozen.

Atlanta kept pace, as Dwight Howard had 23 points and 20 rebounds in a win at Indy. DeMar DeRozan's 24 point night helped Toronto outduel Houston. Golden State continues to dominate the West crushing the Lakers. Steph Curry with 31 points for the Warriors while Klay Thompson, whose record of 37 in any quarter was just missed by Love, added 26. And Anthony Davis poured in 45 points as New Orleans topped Minny.
