The Cleveland Cavaliers will be moving on in the NBA playoffs as they took care of business Sunday, sweeping the Boston Celtics buy a final score of 101-93. But the deciding win in game four may have come with a high price. In the first quarter off a missed shot, the Cavaliers Kevin Love and the Celtics Kelly Olynyk got wrapped up going for a lose ball. Replays show Olynyk grabbing on to Love's left arm in almost an arm bar fashion and pulled. Once the play was over Love headed straight for the locker room and did not return. Reports say Love may miss two weeks with a shoulder separation.

The Cavaliers may also be without J.R. Smith who was ejected from the game in the third quarter fighting for a rebound swinging his left arm backwards and appearing to knock Boston's Jae Crowder down. Crowder would leave the game with a knee injury. Scoring wise, Lebron James led Cleveland with 27, Kyrie Irving had 24, Iman Shumpert 15. For Boston Isaiah Thomas and Jared Sullinger both had 21. It's the first series sweep by the Cavaliers since 2009, when they swept away Detroit and Chicago before falling in the Eastern Conference finals to Orlando that season.

It was also the first series win since beating the Bulls in the opening round of the 2010 playoffs. Cleveland would fall in the next round to Boston, in July James headed to Miami. The Cavaliers will meet either Chicago or Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Bulls lead that series 3-1, with game five in Chicago.
