Kevin Love took a big step in his recovery on Thursday afternoon,A going throughA his first full-contact 5-on-5 practice.A 

"He actually did pretty well," Cavs head coach Larry Drew said afterward. "He moved around pretty well. Got a little winded, which is expected. The first time he has really been in a contact situation where we went up and down and there was actual contact. I thought he moved really well, shot the ball well, passed the ball well. Hopefully tomorrow there are no setbacks when he comes to practice and we will see how he is."

Despite Thursday's practice session, Drew said he "could not project" when Love would make his official return. Drew reiterated, however, that Saturday's matchup against the Dallas Mavericks, a chance for Cleveland to win its third consecutive game, would be "pushing it."

"We are waiting to see how he is after going through a full practice with contact," Drew said. "If there are no setbacks, we will have another practice and see how he does."

Love hasn't played since Oct. 24 -- the fourth game of the regular season.
