Cavaliers moving on without Love

While basketball season is over in Medina after the high school’s cinderella story ended in the sweet sixteen, there is one Cleveland team that is still going strong in the playoffs.

The Cleveland Cavaliers advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a 4-0 sweep against the Boston Celtics on April 26.

During the game however, the Cavs endured a tough blow to their roster; Celtics forward, Kelly Olynyk, and Cavs forward, Kevin Love, went for a rebound where Olynyk dislocated Love’s shoulder. The Cavs, who traded for Love last summer, seem to play significantly better when he’s out on the court.

Cavs Forward, LeBron James, says the news about Love is difficult to digest, he adds, “We’re a confident bunch. We have guys who can step up. No excuses.”

This isn’t the first time that Lebron James has had to deal with a team member suffering from injury; while James played in Miami, they had lost Chris Bosh for the playoffs due to an abdominal tear.

The Cavaliers will resume their mission towards NBA glory on May 4, when they take on the Chicago Bulls at home.
