Perkins, Crowder get into it
NBA 

Cavs big man Kendrick Perkins pushed Jae Crowder to the floor as he set a blindside screen, leading to a shoving match between the two with 1:44 left in the first half. Perkins received a Flagrant 1 foul and both players were assessed double technical fouls. Live on ABC/WatchESPN

Rewound the DVR and couldn't find any squabble with Perkins & Crowder prior to that shove. Guess Perk woke up like this.

LeBron's defense stopping C;s

The Celtics have yet to attempt a field goal with LeBron James as the primary defender. They went 8-of-26 in the first three games with James as the primary defender. Watch live

Perkins and Crowder get into it after Kendrick pushes Jae to the floor. Then Perk got a left handed jab in on Crowder's face.

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Bottom line is Perkins will be ejected. The finger in the face was a bit too much. But point was made. Perkins in there strictly to 'Debo'

Playoff buzzer-beaters to remember

Pop is asked about corner 3s and says this is not a strategy session. Says he's thinking about "pick and roll, Blake Griffin and turnovers."

Raising the Brow

The Pelicans plan to be aggressive and offer Anthony Davis a maximum five-year deal that could exceed $140M, league sources tell ESPN's Marc Stein. Big numbers

LeBron will give his haltime speech while cradling Love's bloody toga and showing the stab holes in it

Dave McMenamin @mcten

The Cavs have only characterized it as a L shoulder injury so far. Not dislocation. Love won't return. Undergoing ice & evaluation.

Update: Kevin Love will not return
NBA 

Kevin Love will not return to today's Game 4 between the Cavs and Celtics. Love suffered a shoulder injury in a first-quarter tangle with Boston's Kelly Olynyk. Watch live

Dave McMenamin @mcten

The Cavs are up 29-19 after 1Q. Mozgov 7p 4r; LeBron 4p 5a; Irving & J.R. 6p apiece. Of course big news is Love's shoulder injury.

Dave McMenamin @mcten

All injuries are not created equal, but for reference sake, Iman Shumpert suffered a dislocated non-shooting shoulder and missed 6 weeks

Russillo @ryenarussillo

Every year lately it seems like we lose at least one major guy during playoffs. Hope it isn't the case for K Love.

No Love = trouble for Cavs

From ESPN Stats & Info: Cavs are +27 with Love on the court this series, +2 when he's on the bench.

Love heads to locker room

Kevin Love appeared to suffer a shoulder injury in a tangle with Boston's Kelly Olynyk and headed to the locker room. Cavs lead Celtics 19-10 with 5:22 left in the first quarter.
