Loved close up view of Pacers-Cavs yesterday. Not counting LeBron, who's not human, overall size & athleticism of NBA players still amazing.

Russell Westbrook played 145 fewer minutes this season than James Harden and a whopping 8 more minutes than LeBron James.

Defense has been a struggle for the Cavs all season long, and their first-round series against the Pacers was no different. In their four-game sweep, the Cavs had one of the worst defensive efficiency ratings of any LeBron James playoff team.

Russell Westbrook may not agree with the narrative, but the numbers never lie. Without Westbrook on the floor, the Thunder have struggled in their first-round series against the Rockets.

Kristaps Porzingis announces at a press conference in Latvia that he'll play for the Latvian national team this summer in the European Championships. The Knicks recommended last year that Porzingis not play with his national team. This year, it is unclear if they made any recommendation. Porzingis was frustrated by the lack of direction within the organization at the end of the season.

Joe Johnson's 28 was his most in a playoff game in 3 years. He scored or assisted on 22 of Utah's final 25 pts. And he shot 71%.
