This has been a really fun six weeks in a league where so many think the Finals combatants are already decided ...

Some perspective. Kobe scored 60 in his last game on FIFTY shots. Klay has 60 on 33 shots tonight.

Houston's Eric Gordon left late in the fourth quarter after rolling his right ankle in the win over Boston. "In the last possession I got tangled up, I think I got tangled up with Pat (Beverley)," Gordon said. "I fell on my ankle, everybody was fighting for the ball but I will be just fine. I am playing next game, so I will be fine. I will be at practice tomorrow as if nothing ever happened, I will be just fine."
