Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love Out Indefinitely

 

BOSTON (AP) - Kevin Love has been ruled out of the Cavaliers' playoff game against the Celtics after hurting his left shoulder midway through the first quarter.
 
   Cleveland's power forward was injured when he and Boston's Kelly Olynyk chased a loose ball into the left corner after Jae Crowder of the Celtics missed a 3-pointer. Olynyk's right arm became entangled with Love's left arm. Love then grabbed his arm and kept running toward the Cleveland bench before going to the locker room, where he was icing the shoulder and undergoing evaluation.
 
   Olynyk was charged with a non-shooting foul.
 
   Love averaged 18.3 points in the first three games and scored the first basket Sunday in Cleveland's attempt to sweep the first-round, Eastern Conference series.

Smith Ejected in Cavs Win

BOSTON (AP) - J.R. Smith has been ejected from Cleveland's playoff game after swinging his arm back and knocking Boston's Jae Crowder to the floor early in the second half.
 
   Crowder remained there for a few minutes before leaving for the locker room. The Celtics said he had a sprained left knee and would not return.
 
   Smith was charged with a flagrant foul. Isaiah Thomas made the two free throws then Avery Bradley hit a basket when the Celtics put the ball in play.
 
   That just cut the Cavaliers' 21-point halftime lead to 57-40 as they went for a sweep of the first-round series.

Cubs Sweep Reds

  CINCINNATI (AP) - Rookie Addison Russell doubled with the bases loaded - one of his best moments during his first week in the majors - and the Chicago Cubs held on for a 5-2 victory on Sunday and a sweep of their rain-shortened series against the Cincinnati Reds.
 
   The 21-year-old second baseman was in a slump when he broke the game open with his three-run double in the fourth inning off Anthony DeSclafani (2-1). Miguel Montero had a solo homer and a run-scoring single off DeSclafani, who had a streak of 16 scoreless innings snapped.
 
   The Reds have dropped three in a row overall. They went 0 for 20 with runners in scoring position during the two games against Chicago.
 
   Jake Arrieta (3-1) pitched six innings after waiting out a 4-hour, 13-minute delay before the Reds called off Saturday's game because of persistent rain. The Cubs won the series opener on Friday night, 7-3 in 11 innings.
