The League decided to re-qualify the punishment of the “Cleveland” striker Kevin Love for the blow of the defender of Toronto Demar Derozan by an elbow in the face in an unsportsmanlike foul of the 1st degree, according to the official tweet of the board of NBA judges.
The incident occurred 1:11 before the end of the fourth quarter of the first game of the series of the second round of the playoff between the teams. The meeting ended with the victory of the Cavaliers in overtime (113: 112).
It is worth noting that, according to the official report of the league on the last two minutes of the match, before the impact of an elbow, Derosan fouled Lava, but the referees missed this moment. As a result of the incident, Love received a foul in the attack and possession of the ball went to the “Raptors.”
