KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The Athletic's Jason Lloyd reported after Cleveland's 128-93 victory that Hood refused to enter the game in the fourth quarter, "angering a number of teammates and those within the organization".

While the Cavs bask in the afterglow of a second round sweep, everything for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champs isn't peaches and cream.

In the long-term, Hood will become a restricted free agent this summer.

As first reported by The Athletic, Hood refused to check into Game 4 when Cavs coach Tyronn Lue attempted to sub him in during a timeout with 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter and Cleveland up 110-80.

The Cleveland Cavaliers enjoyed a rout of the Toronto Raptors on Monday night to close out their Eastern Conference semifinals series with a sweep, but not everybody was happy about it. It was the first time since joining the Cavs that Hood was clearly out of the rotation - and rightfully so. Instead, Hood refused to go in, multiple sources confirmed.

The 25-year-old Hood is averaging 4.6 points in 17 minutes in the post-season. He's yet to connect from deep since Game 2 against the Indiana Pacers, missing his last 10 long-distance attempts. Lue told Hood to check in but he refused, and guard Jose Calderon peeled off his warmup gear and jogged to the scorer's table.

According to Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon, Hood expressed remorse and will not be disciplined for refusing to go in and after a conversation with Cavs general manager Koby Altman. The Cavaliers will reportedly not fine or suspend Hood for his actions. Hood balked, and his refusal to play put him at odds with his team. It's not a stretch to think that Hood didn't want to be seen as an end-of-game minutes-eater when he's hoping to grow his value to potential suitors. In the first three games of the series, Hood scored a combined total of two points on 1-of-9 shooting over 39 minutes.
