The Cavaliers completed their sweep of the Celtics today, but the bigger story from the game is the injury to Kevin Loveā€™s left shoulder.

Love dislocated his shoulder after grappling with Boston center Kelly Olynyk in the first quarter, and Love firmly believes Olynyk yanked his shoulder on purpose.

ā€œI thought it was a bush-league play. I have no doubt in my mind he did it on purpose,ā€ Love said. ā€œThatā€™s just not a basketball play. The league will take a look at it and it better be swift and just.ā€

Hereā€™s video of the play, and you can judge for yourself if Olynyk was trying to injure Love during the skirmish:

Love is traveling back to Cleveland with the rest of his teammates where he will receive medical attention right away. Itā€™s very easy to play doctor right now, but itā€™s really hard to see Love being ready for game one of the second round with this kind of injury.
