REPORT: Kevin Love will not be suspended for entering court during Thompson-Green scuffle, no decision made on Thompson suspension

OAKLAND, Calif.– Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will reportedly not be suspended for leaving the bench area during the waning seconds of overtime during Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Love left the bench briefly during the scuffle between Draymond Green and Tristan Thompson after Thompson had already been ejected for a flagrant 2 foul.

Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports initially reported the news that Love would not be suspended for Sunday’s Game 2:

Per ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, the league is still reviewing Thompson’s role in his altercation with Green. Any suspension for Thompson would be announced later on Friday, if the league does in fact go that route.
