(MEMPHIS) -- The Memphis Grizzlies are on the cusp of eliminating the Portland Trailblazers from the first round of the playoffs, but they will have go without point guard Mike Conley in game four.

Conley's face was on the receiving end of Portland's C.J. Miller's elbow in the third quarter of Saturday's 115-109 victory.

"Mike Conley has a facial injury, we flew him back to Memphis to be reevaluated, he will be out for Game 4," said Memphis head coach Dave Joerger.

Conley was taken to a medical facility Saturday evening and was released later the same night to return for team dinner.

Conley has averaged 16 points per game in Portland's three victories.

Kurt Busch Wins at Richmond

Chris Graythen/Getty Imgages for NASCAR(RICHMOND, Va.) -- Kurt Busch snapped a long 35-race losing streak on Sunday at Richmond International Speedway after he held off Stewart-Haas racing teammate Kevin Harvick.

Busch led 291 of the 400 laps and credited his team for his successful day.

"We're winners in April. It feels good," Busch said. "Plenty of time to do fun things to build the team up, get stronger, learn from all these races coming up and continue to go forward."

"Like [team owner] Gene Haas said: One win is great. I want four or five more," Busch continued.

Busch missed the first three races due to a suspension after his alleged domestic assault on an ex-girlfriend, but said he was always confident he'd be able to focus on the track.

"Standing on the truth the whole time, that gave me the feeling of, when I do get back to the car, it's going to be easy to focus, and I think I've shown that," Busch said.

After starting the race in 36th, Jimmie Johnson finished in third place.

Cavaliers Sweep Celtics, Love Hurts Shoulder

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers took care of business and swept the Boston Celtics out of the first round of the playoffs on Sunday 101-93.

Kevin Love left in the first quarter after suffering a dislocated shoulder and did not return and is questionable moving forward in the playoffs.

"That's just not a basketball play," Love said of the way Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk tangled up his right arm with Love's left.  "I expect it to be physical, but when it has to go to that length it's just not the way it's supposed to be, that's not how you play basketball."

LeBron James scored 27 and Kyrie Irving added 24 in the sweep.

"It didn't look like a basketball play," James said of the Love injury.  "I've seen a lot of tie-ups in my day and that tie-up was a little different."

"You want to play the game of basketball the right way, but you never want it to get out of hand when you have injuries," James continued.  

Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas had 21 in the loss and Avery Bradley finished with 16.

Pelicans to Offer Anthony Davis Max Contract

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) -- Pelicans officials plan to be aggressive as possible in presenting Anthony Davis with a maximum five-year deal that could exceed $140 million, according to league sources.

The exact figures will depend on how much the NBA salary cap actually rises in 2016, but sources told ESPN.com that the Pelicans indeed intend to present Davis with the biggest offer they can once the window for negotiations opens July 1.

The Pelicans would then have until Oct. 31 to convince Davis to sign a five-year deal that makes him their designated player.

Davis just joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain and Bob McAdoo as the only players in league history ‎to average at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in their first four NBA playoff games.

Dodgers put Yasiel Puig on DL with Hamstring Injury

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers put Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list due to a tight left hamstring before Sunday's game at Petco Park, marking the first time the outfielder has been on the DL inhis career.

Puig aggravated the injury trying to beat out a groundball to third base Friday night. He first injured his hamstring April 13 and had been in and out of the lineup since then. Puig tried testing the injury by running on the field and hitting in the indoor batting cage.

"I think he's disappointed, because he thinks he's going to be ready to play in four or five days," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "That's the tough part. Being ready to play and being 100 percent are different. Yasiel plays at one speed. I think we see that. There's no real putting the governor on him. He's just going to play at that speed. It's tough for him to say, 'Hey, you've got to back off.' That's where you've got to protect him from himself."

Puig was batting .279 with two home runs on the young season.
