Addressing media after the game in Boston, Kevin Love was clear about Kelly Olynyk's role in his injury: he thinks it was intentional. Love left the game with a dislocated left shoulder, and things got physical after he left. The Cavs will have some time off between the start of the second round, but Love and perhaps J.R. Smith won't be available.
He added that he expects the league to act quickly and justly. That could involve a suspension to start the season next for Olynyk. Regardless of whether or not it was intentional or whether the league does in fact step in, it's clear that Love was very upset.
David Blatt weighed in as well, saying that he hadn't seen a replay and hoped that it wasn't intentional. If you are looking for some good news, there is a chance that perhaps Love will be able to bounce back and be available for the Cavs again. We will see. He appeared defiant and motivated, but the Cavs won't really know until testing comes back tomorrow what his status could look like.
