Coach Tyronn Lue said that Rodney Hood is “going to get a chance and an opportunity” in the Finals.
Since Hood refused to enter a blowout fourth quarter in Game 4 vs. the Raptors, he’s been dropped from the rotation and essentially benched. The Cavs would probably like to keep him there but with their struggles to put healthy bodies on the floor coupled with Jordan Clarkson’s inability to do anything effective, Lue is open to letting Hood get a shot to produce. With restricted free agency coming up this summer, Hood has a chance for redemption, and the Cavs will need anything he can give them.
