Monday's A.M. Hot Clicks:Cavs Beat Celtics in Slugfest
Fight Night at the Garden
The Cavs completed their four-game sweep of the Celtics in Boston Sunday and it proved to be the most physical/dirty game of the playoffs. Kelly Olynyk nearly pulled Kevin Love's shoulder out of its socket while going for a loose ball, a play Love described as "Bush League." Kendrick (The Enforcer) Perkins was brought in during the second quarter and immediately set a hard screen and threw a punch at Jae Crowder. J.R. Smith got into the action too, throwing a backhand at Crowder during a fight for a third quarter rebound. In the end, talent won out as Cleveland advanced, though Love appears to be out at least two weeks and Smith is "nervous as hell" about a possible suspension.
In other action, Dallas avoided a sweep by Houston and Rick Carlisle wisely taped his mouth shut during the postgame press conference to avoid saying anything dumb. I'm curious if James Harden taped his eyes shut while choosing the outfit he wore to the arena. In San Antonio, the Clippers took a Doc Rivers tongue-lashing to heart and defeated the Spurs to tie the series at 2-2. Manu Ginobli should win a Razzy for this flop. Lastly, the Wizards completed a four-game sweep of the Raptors, which led to some great trash talk from Wale to Drake and a Game of Thrones-inspired meme from Paul Pierce. More importantly, it led to this great Vine of a Wizards fan busting out a celebratory Sprinkler Dance.
