The Cleveland Cavaliers' championship aspirations took a hit on Sunday when forward Kevin Love was diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder. He sustained the injury in the first quarter of Cleveland's 101-93 series-ending victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 4. Boston's Kelly Olynyk grabbed and had Love's arm locked after a missed shot. After the game, Love called it a bush-league play and said he had no doubt Olynyk did it on purpose. USA Today Sports
Olynyk played with a severe eye injury Wednesday night, and in explaining postgame why he decided to play, he seemed to spill the beans on fellow Beantown athlete Dougie Hamilton. "I remember two days ago, I was texting Dougie Hamilton, and he told me he broke his ribs and he's trying to come back before the playoffs, and I was like, man, I can't sit out, he's gonna rip me. All those hockey guys would have killed me so I had to do it," Olynyk said. ESPN.com
Pressey's contract for next season is nonguarnateed yet again and he'll likely have to sweat out another summer league before at least ensuring his payday. Regardless, he'll show up every day, do his work, and be ready when his name is called. "[Pressey has] been here and ready game in and game out, but hasn’t really gotten an opportunity, but he hasn’t bowed his head at all or been upset -- he’s just been an ultimate team guy," said Kelly Olynyk, one of his closest teammates. "When his number is called, he's delivered. It's unbelievable the work he puts in on a daily basis." ESPN.com
