The Golden State Warriors entered Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals as heavy favorites over the Cleveland Cavaliers and much of that perceived advantage came on the strength of having four All-Star players.
As time was winding down in the Warriors' 124-114 win, Love was seen walking away from the bench and on to the floor just before tempers boiled over leading to a big scuffle center around Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green.
Yahoo Sports first reported that Kevin Love has been spared by the NBA's disciplinary committee. If Thompson is suspended we should know no later than Today, according to ESPN.

"I've got a sore ligament", Thompson told reporters.
A third user wrote, "Tristan Thompson was ejected because the ref was mad he cheated on Khloe, and Draymond told Thompson he made sure Khloe was taken care of".
The NBA mandates that players not in the game stay in the bench area during on-court altercations. However, Love said Thursday that he was not anxious about receiving disciplinary action from the league for the sequence. At any rate, he'll be back out there on Sunday for Game 2. The scuffle really sparked when Tristan Thompson lost his cool after receiving a flagrant foul. "Kevin [Durant] threw me the ball in my sweet spot and the clock was going down so I took the shot".
