At NBA Finals media day in Oakland, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue confirmed Love remains in the NBA's concussion protocol, although he said he remained hopeful he'd be cleared in time to play in Game 1. He came back in Game 4, five days after getting hurt in Game 2.
Green performed well in replacing Love in Game 6, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds and two blocks off the bench.
When LeBron James sank a buzzer-beater to flip the Bulls-Cavaliers second-round playoff series in 2015, then-coach Tom Thibodeau summarized the degree of difficulty from James' game-winner over Jimmy Butler.
James did not run back down the court, resting up while Green drew a foul at the other end and made one free throw to give the Cavaliers their biggest lead of the game. The game was not pretty at times, but Cleveland overcame all the adversity to win the biggest game of the season thus far. "The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is you always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7".
Love had been averaging 13.9 points per game with 10 rebounds in the postseason this year.
At one point during what he has called the most challenging season of his 15-year career, LeBron even questioned whether the Cavs would make the playoffs.

If someone told you before the season started that Jeff Green would be starting at power forward for the Cavs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, you probably would have thought Cleveland was in serious trouble.
In those appearances, James has a 3-5 record.
"I think we've played now until May 25th and May 27th the last two years, and we started on September 25th", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.
The offseason will be one where the Celtics, who earned the 2nd-seed in the Eastern Conference in 2017-2018, don't just look like one of the top teams in the East on paper. I just go out and play my game.
"What I'm witnessing and seeing in LeBron James, as a complete basketball player, dominating this period of time-I haven't seen anyone else do that in our league, with the exception of two people, and that's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell".
