LEBRON JAMES’ CLEVELAND Cavaliers are through to the second round of the playoffs after a clean sweep 4 – 0 series win over the Boston Celtics.

However, it looks like the Cavs will be without one of their most important players for the Eastern Conference semi-finals.

In the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ 101 – 93 win in Boston, Kelly Olynyk grabbed the arm of Kevin Love and the former Timberwolf dislocated his shoulder as a result.

Even after his team had ensured their progress, Love was still livid with the Canadian.

“I thought it was a bush-league play. I have no doubt in my mind that he did it on purpose,” Love told reporters in the dressing room after the game.

“Olynyk was in a compromising position, had no chance to get the ball, and it was just too bad that he would go to those lengths to take somebody out of a game.”

The Celtics coach insisted that Olynyk ‘isn’t that type of player’, but what do you think?
