NBC Sports Boston decided to throw shade at the Cleveland Cavaliers after the Boston Celtics took a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The news outlet ran a segment on Wednesday breaking down the “most useless Cavaliers,” as shared by The MMQB’s Albert Breer:

The five people to make the list included Jeff Green, George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, JR Smith and head coach Tyronn Lue.
Smith, in particular, drew the ire of Boston fans and players during Tuesday’s 107-94 loss when he received a flagrant 1 foul for shoving Al Horford in the back as he was going up for an alley-oop dunk.
Hill, Smith and Green combined for nine points in Cleveland’s Game 2 loss. Clarkson didn’t appear in the game after playing just 16 minutes in Game 1.
