I know he's been in foul trouble but it's a bit strange to see Kristaps Porzingis take just 6?shots thus far. San Antonio has done a nice job taking things away from Porzingis, who hasn't gotten more than 3 good looks at the basket.

The backcourt has led Portland to a 27-21 advantage over Minnesota after one quarter. CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard have combined for 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting.

The only Cavs D in circulation at present is DISAPPOINTMENT. Think we can drop all the disclaimers now and declare this a three-man MVP race

Cavs lose 127-115 as they dug a hole for themselves early against Washington and couldn't come back. LeBron James 24p 11r 8a; Kyrie Irving 23p 4a; Kevin Love 17p 7r; Richard Jefferson 10p; Kyle Korver 10p. WAS put all five starters in double digits led by John Wall 37p 11a 2s and Bradley Beal 27p 6a. The Wizards shot 59.8 percent from the floor and 44.4 percent from 3. Washington outrebounded Cleveland 40-32.

The Knicks haven't quit. They cut San Antonio's 18-point lead to four late in the 3rd quarter behind Willy Hernangomez's 22 points.

Blazers about to tip off in Portland against Minnesota but all eyes on Oregon in the Elite Eight.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Grizzlies C Marc Gasol is questionable for Sunday's game against the Warriors due to a left foot strain.

Justin Verrier ESPN Staff Writer 

DeMarcus Cousins is listed as questionable for tomorrow's game in Denver with a right ankle sprain.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Kristaps Porzingis has four fouls in the first half. The Knicks missed two bunnies on one possession and are down 18. The tank rolls on.

How much does homecourt advantage in first round mean to Jazz? "It don't matter," said George Hill, who was minus-29 in loss to Clippers.

If there's not a place for KU's Frank Mason, III in the NBA, then I don't know what. Dude is a stud.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks, down 14, have moved the ball pretty well early on against San Antonio. They are just missing easy shots.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Kristaps Porzingis has picked up 3 personal fouls nine minutes into tonight's game against San Antonio. His rough start tonight comes on the heels of a so-so game against Portland. This final stretch of games will be important for Porzingis as he'll likely be the Knicks' No. 1 option on offense.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Rose haven't had great chemistry this season. It will be interesting to see how those two play together tonight with Carmelo Anthony out. Will Rose and Porzingis thrive without Anthony - another player who uses the ball frequently.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cavs trail the Wizards 40-26 at the end of the 1st Q. John Wall has 18p on 8-for-8 shooting with 5a. WAS is shooting 18-for-22; the Cavs are shooting 10-for-22.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

Is LaMarcus Aldridge's resurgence real? Guess we'll see as the season comes to a close.
