NBA: Love and James keep Bucks at bay

CLEVELAND (Reuters) - Kevin Love returned to the line-up and produced 24 points and 10 rebounds as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-104.

LeBron James had 26 points, eight assists and six rebounds, and Kyrie Irving had 16 points, eight rebounds and eight assists on his 24th birthday for the Cavaliers, who have won four of their last five.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Bucks, who lost their third straight game. Greg Monroe had 14 points.

Love missed one game with a head and chest cold that bothered him for about a week and broke out of a shooting funk that plagued him since the All-Star break. He hit eight of 14 shots from the floor.
