LeBron James says not playing alongside Kevin Love is quite difficult for him.

Cleveland Cavaliers lost 113-105 to Portland Trailblazers on Thursday, their third loss in four games.

LeBron James racked up  35 points, 14 rebounds and six assists, but could not lift the Cavs, and has registered the absence of Love  as a problem.

“It’s been a long time since I haven’t played with another All-Star on my team,” James said. “So, having Kev out has been very challenging for all of us. Kev has a big usage rate on our team. He’ll get the ball when things get tight, chaotic, we can throw it to him in the low post and get some things going.”

“It’s not just Kev,” James said. “We’re missing Double T as well. Rodney went back out again. So, obviously, you want to win every game, but my approach doesn’t change.”

 

It’s an approach that has led him to average 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 8.5 assists in this his 15th season.

 

“[It] has always stayed the same: Just continue to attack, attack defenses, and if I attract two to the ball, give my guys opportunities,” James said. “Rebound the ball. Defend. There’s a lot of energy that’s used with that, but that’s fine as well.”
