Cavaliers Complete the Sweep But it Comes at a Cost

Yesterday the Cleveland Cavaliers completed the sweep of the Boston Celtics on the East side of the first round of the playoffs. It was a hard fought series, but in the end the Cavs had too much fire power. Even the great basketball genius, Brad Stevens, couldn't raise his team to win one game.

The last win did come at a cost for the Cavs, however as forward Kevin Love sustained a separated shoulder injury in the first quarter of action. The news is that he will be out for at least two weeks. This could be a huge problem for the Cavs as their next opponent appears will be the Bulls, in which Love could potentially miss the entire series.

Not only would playing the Bulls without Love be hard enough, but the Bulls are looking very strong in their first round action against the Bucks. To make matters worse, Derrick Rose is starting look like the Derrick Rose of old. Love also contributed a lot in the minutes he played in this series, which had fans ecstatic and looking for a deep run into the playoffs and possibly bring home the first NBA championship for the city of Cleveland.

It now appears that this goal is going to much tougher for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but nothing is impossible when you have the King on your team. As for all basketball fans, we hope that Kevin heals up soon and is able to get back out on the floor. This was his first time in his seven
years in the league that he was playing in the playoffs, and it would be a shame to see it end like this.


  1. Although I am not the biggest fan of basketball, I do have soft spot for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I would love to see them get a championship this year and fully make Lebron go from the goat to the hero once and for all after leaving the Cavs for the Heat.

  2. Honestly, I'm not sure the loss of Kevin Love is really going to hurt the Cavaliers. They played fairly well when he missed games this year, and are only improving in team chemistry with the addition of JR Smith and Iman Shumpert.
