Celtics’ Physicality Tested LeBron James, Cavaliers Despite Sweep (Video)

A team has never looked so good getting swept out of the playoffs.

The Boston Celtics left everything on the court Sunday afternoon, and despite their best intentions and a few missing Cavaliers players, lost 101-93, completing Cleveland’s sweep in the opening round of the NBA playoffs.

Kevin Love’s status is unknown after he suffered a separated left shoulder while tangled up with Kelly Olynyk, J.R. Smith could be facing a suspension after striking Jae Crowder in the face and Kendrick Perkins got into it with his former team, too. It was an eventful four games, and NESN’s Ben Watanabe and CLNS Radio’s Jared Weiss broke down the series in the video above.
