The Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed the Toronto Raptors to sweep their way into the Eastern Conference finals yet again, but there may be some tension inside the Cavs' locker room after Rodney Hood refused to enter Game 4 in the fourth quarter Monday.

Hood "feels terrible", according to the source, and he plans to apologize to his teammates and coaching staff in person as soon as they get back together after a couple of days off following a 4-0 sweep of the Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinals. He has averaged just 4.6 points and shot less than 40 percent from the field, missing his last 10 3-point attempts.

The stunt certainly raised eyebrows across the organization.

Meanwhile, the broad based NSE Nifty went up by 97.25 or 0.92% at 10,715.50 with 33 components posting rise. Brent crude oil futures were at Dollars 75.49 per barrel, up 62 cents, or 0.83 per cent.

ESPN reported Tuesday afternoon that Hood already apologized to teammates and "feels awful" for the incident.

"This is the playoffs". As reported by Jason Lloyd at The Athletic, Cavaliers swingman Rodney Hood refused to enter the game in the fourth quarter, despite pleas for him to do so from his coach and some veteran teammates. "This isn't about you".

Hood explained to Altman, according to a team source, that he said something to the effect of, "I'm good, I'm fine, play the other guys", when asked to go in Monday. Let's put Hood's behavior in Game 4 into context. 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.

WhatsApp now lets you watch Facebook, Instagram videos directly within app
After all, Instagram and Facebook do heavily rely on the feature and it makes sense that it caters to a wider audience as well. Maybe WhatsApp would allow users to get rid of ads by buying into a premium ad-free subscription for a fraction of the cost.

Hood, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, has a major financial incentive to perform well this postseason.

Hood has struggled in the playoffs after being acquired in a February trade from Utah. In his 21 games (11 starts), he played well and became a big part of the rotation with an average of 25.3 minutes a night.

If Hood's explanation for his actions isn't sufficient, a suspension could be forthcoming.
