  • Cavs' Rodney Hood Angered His Teammates & Possibly Lost The Locker Room After His Game 4 Stunt

Cleveland Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue had the luxury of emptying his bench during the fourth quarter of Game 4 last night, as the Cavs routed the Raptors 128-93 en route to a four-game sweep.

During Monday's Game 4 against the Raptors, the Cavaliers role-players finally stepped up, giving LeBron James a bit of relief from his Atlas-like duties of carrying the franchise on his shoulders.

The Athletic first reported Hood's refusal to play in the game, and in its piece suggested that numerous Cavs were upset and that a suspension or fine was possible.

Hood is a very good player but he's had a awful playoffs so far, averaging only 4.6 points on 39.6 percent shooting.

To determine the answer with some more certainty, the researchers used a data-driven model to predict the life cycles of stars. Professor Albert Zijslra says, 'When a star dies it ejects a mass of gas and dust - known as its envelope - into space.

"Hood refused to go in, multiple sources confirmed".

Cleveland will await the victor of the Philadelphia 76ers-Boston Celtics series in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Monday's game, which finished the sweep of the Raptors in front of the home fans, was the flawless chance for Hood to gain some rhythm, with almost nothing at stake and plenty of minutes to hoist from distance.

He's a restricted free agent this summer and could have improved his bid for a long-term contract with a good showing in this postseason.

This is going to be a blow to the Saints, who have clearly gone to a run-first offense and taken pressure an aging Drew Brees. The former Alabama star was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the 28th overall pick in the 2011 draft.

It goes on: "A number of veterans huddled around him during the timeout and tried talking sense into him, but Hood still refused to go, so Jose Calderon subbed into the game instead".

Lloyd later explained that Koby Altman, the team's general manager, wants to meet with Rodney Hood to get his side of the story.

Hood has struggled in the postseason.

Obviously, this doesn't bode well going forward for Hood's relationship with his teammates, all of whom he's only been playing with since joining the team in a trade deadline deal this past February. In the Cavs' 10 playoff games, he has averaged 4.6 points per game on 39.6% shooting and just 13.3% from three-point range.
