Tom Thibodeau on the Timberwolves' culture: "It's a work in progress. We're still working at it. It's not something you get in a second. It's what you do every day. Everything matters. It's how you approach everything. We've made great strides, and we still have a lot of strides to make."

The Wizards' bigs have been quiet scoring-wise but Washington only trails by one at the half due in part to the Wizards' hustle on the glass. Washington has nine offensive rebounds and has outscored Toronto, 7-0, in second-chance points.

The Cavs were able to sustain LeBron James' rest to begin the 2nd quarter. In the 4:15 he sat, Cleveland outscored Indiana by three.

The Raptors have harped on their uncharacteristic turnovers during the series -- particularly in Game 4 -- after ranking 4th in the NBA this season in protecting the ball. They have turned the ball over at a higher rate than any team in the postseason. With 5:19 before halftime, the Raptors have squandered only two possessions. They lead 41-35.

Pacers have already committed 7 turnovers. No poise, no calm to be found...again...how long before they gather themselves?

Cavs trail 25-23 after the first quarter. Good sign for Cleveland: LeBron James is living in the paint, totaling 14 points on 6-for-7 shooting. Bad sign for Cleveland: The rest of the Cavs not named LeBron James are 3-for-15 from the field (including a 1-for-9 mark from 3). Victor Oladipo leads the Pacers with 6 points.

The Cavs fell down 13-7 early but have made a little indentation here by stringing together some stops. JR Smith has two steals. The Pacers have four turnovers. And now the score reads 15-13 in favor of Indiana.

There's a lot going on in the Toronto sports universe tonight. Besides the Raptors hosting the Wizards for Game 5, the Blue Jays are playing the Red Sox right down the street and Maple Leafs fans gathered downtown to watch the Leafs' Game 7 at Boston tonight as well.

There will be a moment of silence and a Toronto Strong banner held on the court before Game 5 for the victims of the deadly van attack that took place in downtown Toronto on Monday.

We could see some lineup wrinkles as this series moves on between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he could go to rookie Cedi Osman while George Hill (back) is out. Pacers coach Nate McMillan said that Glenn Robinson III could get his number called.

Toronto backup point guard Fred VanVleet will not play tonight. Raptors coach Dwane Casey says the medical team has rendered him not ready to return to the court.
