Cavs G Hood apologizes for refusing to enter Game 4

Final Thoughts: On a series sweep, a poorly timed 'SNL' skit and Rodney Hood's fourth-quarter antics Cavs' Rodney Hood Angered His Teammates & Possibly Lost The Locker Room After His Game 4 Stunt
| 09 May, 2018, 01:03

The Cavs swept the Raptors and await either the Boston Celtics or Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference finals.

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. "Hood dressed quickly and was one of the first players out of the locker room after the game".

Guard Rodney Hood was the only active player on the Cavaliers' roster that did not log any minutes in their Game 4 closeout victory over the Raptors on Monday.

Hood was the only player not to play in Game 4, though the Cavs do not view what he did as an act of defiance, a source said.

"When the Cavs called a timeout with a 30-point lead and 7:38 left Monday, Lue tried inserting Hood for James". "It was a great opportunity for a struggling youngster to try to find his rhythm without any pressure before the next series".


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. He's yet to connect from deep since Game 2 against the Indiana Pacers, missing his last 10 long-distance attempts.

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

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.

Per Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, Cavs general manager Koby Altman and members of the front office met with Hood, who "expressed remorse" for the situation.

Hood scored just two points in the first three games of this series and is averaging 4.6 points for the playoffs on.133 shooting from 3-point range.
