INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tryonn Lue expects injured forward Kevin Love to play Friday in Game 3 at Indiana.

Love hurt his left thumb late in Wednesday's victory that evened the series at 1-1. He did not return but did participate in Friday's morning shootaround with what appeared to be a taped-up thumb.

Lue told reporters Love felt better and noted he is a right-handed shooter. Love did not speak with reporters.

The All-Star would be one of the key ingredients in helping to provide a stronger supporting cast for LeBron James, who scored 46 points in Game 2.

When asked if he expected more help, James explained his teammates play the game the right way and ''we'll see what happens.''
