NBA: Love says 'sky's the limit' for surging Cavs

Kevin Love feels Cleveland Cavaliers are starting to look like genuine NBA championship contenders following Wednesday's win over Milwaukee Bucks.

The Cavs are 50/1 to win the NBA Championship outright, while Milwaukee are 7/1 to win the title for a second year in a row.

Cleveland secured a convincing win over the Bucks on Wednesday, outscoring Milwaukee by 17 points in the second quarter and 10 in the third to put the game beyond doubt, as they claimed a 115-99 victory.

Love, who led the scoring for the Cavs with 25 points and nine rebounds, won the championship with the Cavs in 2016 and he feels the current squad are capable of making a deep run in the post-season, as they appear on course to end a three-year absence from the play-offs.

"It was huge. We beat a very, very good team tonight," said Love, via the BBC. "And if we stay true to our principles and true to who we are as a team, I think the sky's the limit for us."

Cleveland have won eight of their last nine games and sit in third spot in the East with a 30-19 overall record.

Miami Heat lead the way with a 31-17 record and they picked up a win over New York Knicks on Wednesday, while Chicago Bulls are second and they overcame Toronto Raptors 111-105.

The East looks incredibly competitive this season with just two-and-a-half games separating the Heat from Philadelphia 76ers in sixth spot.

Cleveland are next in action on Sunday as they head to Detroit Pistons.
