Things quickly moved past chippy up to confrontational between the Celtics and Cavaliers on Sunday. Somehow Kendrick Perkins got to stay in the game, but the Cavaliers will be without a couple key players for a few games, and that’s what Jenna Corrado and I discuss in this latest PBT Extra.

First, was Kelly Olynyk’s play on Kevin Love dirty? Love thought it was; I’m not so sure.

Then, how many games should J.R. Smith be suspended for his blow to the head of Jae Crowder? I would say three games if it were my call. But the NBA’s seemingly random suspension generator could land on any number, it’s hard to predict.
