For the briefest of moments Sunday, the Cleveland Cavaliers had 13 players on the court while the ball was in play in their preseason game against the Washington Wizards.
Don’t blame Cavs coach Tyronn Lue for a mass substitution gone awry. Blame Jeff Green.
The backup forward’s left-handed dunk over Washington’s 6-11 center Ian Mahinmi in the second quarter caused Cleveland’s bench to lose its collective mind for a moment and spring forward from their seats in delirious celebration.
And one of the first decisions that must be made is the fate of manager John Farrell.
Farrell has guided the Red Sox to a World Series championship and three AL East titles (and two last-place finishes) in five seasons at the helm, and he is the only manager in franchise history to win back-to-back division crowns. But he’s also entering the final year of his contract, and after the Sox were beaten soundly in consecutive AL Division Series, ownership and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski must decide if a new voice is needed in the manager’s office.
Justin Verlander outpitched Chris Sale in a relief role reversal of aces, and the Houston Astros advanced to their first AL Championship Series, rallying past the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Monday in Game 4 of their playoff matchup.
