Atlanta forward Al Horford was ejected in the final minute of the second quarter of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday night for throwing an elbow at Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova. Horford and Dellavedova got tangled on the floor while scrambling for a loose ball. As Dellavedvoa was rolling up on his right knee, Horford brought his right arm down hard and appeared to strike the side of the scrappy Australian guard’s head.

Warriors-Rockets Preview (Yahoo Sports)

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors aren’t worried about a letdown in Game 4 after taking a 3-0 lead over the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference finals. The Warriors are one win away from reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since they won the 1975 title after Curry poured in 40 points in a 115-80 win in Game 3 on Saturday night. Coach Steve Kerr doesn’t believe anything will change for his team now that the Warriors are on the cusp of advancing heading into Monday night’s game in Houston.

Already facing a daunting task after losing the first two games at home in the Eastern Conference final, the Atlanta Hawks were dealt another major blow Saturday when 3-point specialist Kyle Korver was ruled out for the rest of the playoffs because of a severely sprained right ankle. Cleveland’s Matthew Dellavedova slammed into the side of Korver’s ankle late in the third quarter of the Cavaliers’ 94-82 victory Friday night. Korver will be examined by a foot and ankle specialist to determine the best course of treatment, but there’s no chance of him playing again this postseason, the team said.
