That's how we feel too, Love

Kevin Love could get suspended after Game One due to a lesser known rule.

Game 1 of the NBA finals between the Cavaliers & the Warriors happened last night. It was fun, surprising, and intense. A LOT happened, especially at the end of the game; Hill missed the winning
free throw, Smith ran the clock out for no reason, and Thompson threw up elbows and then got in a scuffle with Green. The thing that needs a bit more attention right now is the fact that Kevin Love could get suspended for a seemingly innocuous act. I'm a Warriors fan, but this is a bit absurd. There's a rule (& for good reason)
that if a fight breaks out on the court, players not on the court are not allowed onto it during that time. If they enter the court during a fight, they could face suspension. 
Last night, Love was standing on the court, waiting for the clock to run out during OT. Thompson got ejected and the scuffle broke out between him and Green. Love can be seen taking a 
few steps more onto the court before a coach pulled him back. Since there haven't been any violations of this newish NBA rule in quite some time, the NBA might give him a pass. However, if they want to make an example of Love, to quell the high tensions between the two teams, they could suspend him for entering the court.
The NBA take this rule very seriously. If Love gets suspended, this would seriously hurt the Cavaliers chances of coming back for the title much more than they were already hurt.
