The Cleveland Cavaliers' J.R. Smith was called for a flagrant-2 foul for striking the Celtics' Jae Crowder in the face and subsequently ejected with 10 minutes, 27 seconds left to play in the third quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference first-round series. Crowder fell to the floor after the collision and had to be helped up by his teammates and ushered to the locker room for evaluation. On his way off the court Crowder exchanged words with several members of the Cleveland bench. ESPN.com

Dave McMenamin: Looks like Kevin Love dislocated his left shoulder. He went sprinting to the locker room right away after the play occurred. Twitter @mcten

Jae Crowder says he will be with the first unit for Sunday’s Game 4 closeout matchup with Cleveland, likely replacing rookie Marcus Smart or Evan Turner in the starting lineup. “That’s the plan,” Crowder said when asked about whether he was starting. “I just have to come out the gate, hit first and withstand their runs early. We’ll be fine.” CSNNE.com


It will be very hard to surpass the No. 1 player on the list – especially now that he's back..
