    Celtics Talk Radio Episode 101 End of The Celtics Season as Celtics are Swept

    in Sports

    The Boston Celtics Season came to an end this past Sunday at the hand of Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers via a 4-0 series sweep. Game 4 saw several things that could have an effect on both the Celtics in terms of their plans for the offseason and the Cavaliers in their chase for the NBA Championship. In game 4 we saw the Cavs 3rd best player Kevin Love go down with a dislocated shoulder which could cost him to miss some time depending on the severity. In the 3rd quarter the Cavaliers delivered 2 cheap shots to Jae Crowder. 1 delivered by former Celtic Center Kendrick Perkins as he delivered a shot to the head of Crowder shoving him to the ground which resulted in Crowder retaliating and Perkins hitting him in the face a 2nd time before the refs broke things up. Perkins was not ejected for his actions. Then in the same quarter JR Smith threw an elbow right to the face of Crowder which knocked him out causing Crowder to fall down in an akward way causing a leg injury and that led to Crowder having to leave the game. JR Smith was ejected for his actions. Now both JR Smith and Kendrick Perkins face possible suspensions for their actions which would cost them games in the 2nd round of the playoffs. Meanwhile some of the players the Celtics were depending greatly on to lead this team came up small in this series. Brandon Bass being one of the biggest dissapointments in this series. So now we recap what happened in games 3 and 4. What could the Celtics and its fans take out of this series? Did any of the players on the roster clinch their one way ticket out of Boston like Brandon Bass? Did any Celtics win over the fan base and earn the right to return next season like Jae Crowder? The Celtics Talk Crew will answer those questions as well as give you the updates on what the NBA has decided to do to Perkins and Smith for their actions in game 4. John Karalis of redsarmy.com will join us on this episode of Celtics Talk Radio
