Cavaliers’ Kevin Love was hoping to get home from Atlanta in time to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones.
Kevin Love and the Cavaliers completed their second sweep of the playoffs on Sunday with a 100–99 victory over the Hawks, and with their Eastern Conference Finals opponent still undecided, Love has only one thing on his mind, Game of Thrones.
Cleveland played in the 3:30 p.m. ET game on Sunday, which meant that Love had a shot to get home from Atlanta in time to be in front of his TV and catch the third episode of season six of the popular HBO fantasy show, and he let the assembled media know that was his primary concern.
Love put up 27 points and 13 rebounds in the win on Sunday, while Bran Stark and the Three-Eyed Raven traveled to the past to see Ned’s fight at the Tower of Joy.
