Rodney Hood expressed remorse, won't be disciplined by Cavs

WATCH SNL did an amazing sketch about Le Bron James Cavaliers

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Rodney Hood refused to enter the game in the fourth quarter during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, reports The Athletic. We'll see how much time Lue gives him when the Cavs play in the Eastern Conference Finals-likely against the Boston Celtics, who lead the Philadelphia 76ers 3-1 and could close out that series Wednesday.

With the result of the game a formality, coach Tyronn Lue reportedly tried to sub Hood in, but the fourth-year wing refused the bench boss' order and balked at the pleas of teammates asking him to reconsider. 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. He was the only Cleveland player to log zero minutes in Game 4.

Rodney Hood refused to enter the game when summoned in the fourth quarter Monday, angering a number of teammates, according to multiple sources.

Google introduces new policies for United States election ad transparency
While Facebook may have their issues with political ads well in hand, Google has been somewhat silent on the issue. Google said it's also working across various industries to help strengthen protections around elections.

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. Hood ended up averaging 6.3 points on 46.2 percent shooting (16.7 percent from 3), 1.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 18.9 minutes per game against Indiana.

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

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.

Israeli authorities begin putting up road signs for U.S. embassy in Jerusalem
Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who serve as advisers to the president, will also attend. No country now has its embassy in Jerusalem, instead keeping them in the Israeli commercial capital Tel Aviv.

In the short-term, Hood faces a fine or suspension for conduct detrimental to the team, Lloyd posited, but at the very least you would expect him to remain out of the rotation for the foreseeable future. Hood joined the team in February as a part of the Cavaliers massive shake-up just before the trade deadline.

Lloyd notes that Cavs general manager Koby Altman intends to meet with Hood to discuss the matter.

The Cavaliers will meet the victor of the Boston Celtics-Philadelphia 76ers series in the Eastern Conference Finals.
