NBA upgrades Love's elbow to DeRozan to Flagrant 1 foul

Manage (Photo: David Liam Kyle, Getty)In Game 1 of the second round matchup between Cleveland and Toronto, the Cavs narrowly beat the Raptors in overtime by winning 113-112.

Perhaps adding insult to literal injury, officials didn't provide Raptors coach Dwane Casey with a suitable explanation for why Love wasn't called for a Flagrant Foul.

I’m not saying the officials are right or wrong, but as a league I think we owe it to the players and the fans, that’s why we have the replay centre is to look at it."

It doesn't truly help him but Casey may now feel some form of validation as the NBA's Last Two Minute Report states that Love should've been called for a Flagrant Foul 1.

Love (CLE) swings his elbows and makes contact with DeRozan (TOR).

Kevin Love’s (CLE) foul against DeMar DeRozan (TOR) at 1:11 of 4th quarter on 5/1/18 upgraded to a Flagrant 1 upon league office review.

So overall, Love not being called for a flagrant didn't have a direct impact on the final result of the game.
