When it's mattered most for the Clippers, Chris Paul has been their go-to playmaker and delivered with big shots.

What was the difference for the Celtics in their first-round series win against the Bulls? Ball movement, which allowed them to shoot 51 percent from the field and 38 percent from the 3-point line.

ESPN Stats and Information  

If the Wizards plan to take down the Celtics in the second round, they'll need to quicken the pace and find opportunities in transition like they did against the Hawks.

The Clippers survived to force a Game 7 despite nearly collapsing in crunch time. A 10-point lead with 1:29 remaining was sliced to three, and Jazz clutch star Joe Johnson had a chance to tie it with a 3-pointer with seconds remaining but missed. Chris Paul and Co. live to play another game. "It wouldn't be us if it wasn't dramatic," Paul said on ESPN after a pair of late turnovers almost spoiled his 29-point, 8-assist performance. The big question: How healthy will Jazz center Rudy Gobert be after hurting his ankle late in the third quarter?

Jazz center Rudy Gobert was clearly hobbled after twisting his left ankle late in the third quarter. His health will be a major issue with a quick turnaround with the series looking like it's headed back to Los Angeles for Game 7.

Jae Crowder said Isaiah Thomas told teammates to go prepare for the Wizards while he heads to Tacoma for his sister's funeral. "He's gonna have a busy 24 hours," said Crowder. "He's shown he can overcome a lot. We're his family, he's going to be with his family, so I think he'll be able to bounce back. But we know he's going through a lot, and he wants us to prepare, and that's what we're gonna do. We're gonna prepare, and when he gets back he said he'll be ready to go."
