Kevin Love Says Shoulder Injury in Game 4 was Result of “Bush-League Play” (Video)
While chasing down a loose ball with the Boston Celtics’ Kelly Olynyk during the opening quarter of Game 4 on Sunday, Kevin Love sustained a shoulder injury that could force him to miss a significant portion of the Cavaliers’ playoff run, if not all of it.
Initial reports indicate that Love dislocated his left shoulder. He’ll be reevaluated at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health within the next 24 hours. When asked about his thoughts regarding the play that caused the injury, Kevin Love described it as “bush-league,” saying “I have no doubt in my mind that he did it on purpose.”
Here’s a look at the play in question. You be the judge:
The Cavaliers would go on to take Game 4 by a score of 101-93, completing their four-game sweep of the Celtics. Up next is likely a date with Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls (assuming the Bucks don’t pull off an unthinkable comeback).
No word yet on whether or not Love will be available for that series.
