Celtics-Cavaliers series ends with sweep, chippy altercations
The Boston Celtics - Cleveland Cavaliers finale on Sunday was full of fireworks - for the wrong reasons.
The Celtics got swept by the Cavaliers in their first-round playoff series 4-0 after dropping the afternoon contest, 101-93, but it got ugly during two separate instances in the game.
In the first quarter, Kelly Olynyk and Kevin Love got tied up going for a loose ball. Olynyk appeared to lock arms with Love and pull down, causing Love's shoulder (non-shooting) to separate.
Celtics guard Jae Crowder was involved in two different dust-ups, first getting pushed to the ground during a blind screen by former Celtic Kendrick Perkins, leading to a brief altercation.
Crowder also sprained his knee on the play.
The league has yet to weigh in on any additional penalties for Sunday's extracurricular activities, but fines and suspensions are possible.
