Rivers 'doubts' that Clippers PG Chris Paul plays in Game 2
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:39 pm ET) Clippers point guard Chris Paul (hamstring) appears destined to miss Game 2 of the second-round playoff series Wednesday night in Houston.

Asked if Paul will play, Doc Rivers responded per the Houston Chronicle, "I pretty much doubt it."

Paul was unavailable in the opener, but the Clippers stunned the basketball world by beating the Rockets handily on the road. Replacement Austin Rivers scored 17 points.


Bulls coach, teammate praise struggling C Joakim Noah
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:30 pm ET) Bulls center Joakim Noah took four shots and missed them all as the boos rained down upon him in Game 1 of the second-round playoffs series Monday in Cleveland. Among his misses was an easy layup.

But Noah, who is still struggling with his surgically repaired knee, still has the appreciation of teammate Derrick Rose.

"With Jo, he's giving us what he's got," Rose told CSNChicago.com. "He's been through a lot. For a big guy having those injuries, it takes a lot. Just his energy, his presence is a lot. He's a hell of a character, hell of a teammate and it kind of rubs off on people."

Tom Thibodeau cited Noah's nine rebounds and two blocked shots in praising him.

"I don't want to get lost in his scoring because it's never been a strong suit," he said. "It's all the other stuff he brings to the team. It's not the emotion, it's the activity. When he does that, he's very, very effective for us. It's how the team functions when he's on the floor. He doesn't have to shoot well to play well. It'll come around for him."


Free agency awaits emerging Hawks SF DeMarre Carroll
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:48 am ET) Emerging Hawks small forward DeMarre Carroll still has work to do this season as his team attempts to advance to the Eastern Conference finals. But his efforts since the All-Star break, particularly in the playoffs, has certainly raised the stock of the free agent-to-be, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting.

Carroll leads the Hawks in the postseason with an 18.9 scoring average. He's shooting a blistering .556 from the field and is 20 of 43 from distance. He has effectively followed up a second half of the season in which he averaged 13.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.

The 28-year-old Carroll, who according to the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement is an unrestricted free agent after this year, is making just $2.4 million this season. He could command triple that on the open market. Mike Budenholzer has been impressed with his performance.

"He just gets it within the context of who we play in our offense and his teammates are creating a lot of opportunities for him," he said. "He's taking advantage of them. He's driving and attacking more."


Report: GM to give Nets PF Mirza Teletovic a qualifying offer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:34 am ET) Nets general manager Billy King is planning on giving power forward Mirza Teletovic a qualifying offer, ESPN has reported.

The Bosnian import can be a free agent, but has expressed an interest in staying with Brooklyn.

Teletovic lost three months of the regular season to blood clots before returning to earn a bit of playing time in the playoff loss to Atlanta. He averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 22 minutes per game this season.


Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving happy Tristan Thompson starting
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) The placement of Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson into the starting lineup for Game 4 has point guard Kyrie Irving smiling a bit more.

"We get our 3-man back," Irving told Bleacher Report.

Irving was referring to LeBron James, who was forced to play power forward in the opener as a replacement for injured Kevin Love. Irving prefers James to push the pace with him rather than play in the post.

The insertion of Thompson into a starting role prevents the Cavaliers from bringing any big men off the bench unless they are willing to play little-used Kendrick Perkins.


Cavaliers star LeBron James vows greater efficiency in Game 2
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Cavaliers star LeBron James is vowing not only to be more aggressive, but also more efficient in Game 2 of their second-round playoff series against Chicago.

James was unhappy with his 9-for-22 shooting and six turnovers in the opener, which resulted in Cleveland losing homecourt advantage.

"I expect to be more sharper offensively than I was in Game 1," he said via Bleacher Report. "The efficiency wasn't up to par, to my liking."

James did contribute 15 rebounds and came within one assist of a triple-double in the defeat.


Report: Tristan Thompson in, Mike Miller out of Cavaliers lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:22 am ET) Cavaliers power forward and super sub Tristan Thompson, who led the NBA this season in offensive rebounding off the bench, will reportedly not be a super sub in Game 2 of the playoff series against Chicago on Wednesday night. He is set to start, league sources have told the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Thompson came off the bench in the first-game loss and managed four points and eight rebounds in 37 minutes. With Thompson pairing up with LeBron James and Timofey Mozgov, the Cavaliers would boast a frontcourt of three players 6-foot-8 and taller.

The move would send Mike Miller to the bench. Miller, who did not play at all in the first-round series against Boston, failed to provide much production in the opener.

It remains to be seen who Thompson guards, but he might match up with Pau Gasol, whose length and mid-range jumper wreaked havoc on the Cavaliers in Game 1.


Thibodeau on Bulls PF Taj Gibson: 'Taj is always important'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:13 am ET) The addition of Pau Gasol and emergence of Nikola Mirotic this season cut into the opportunities for Bulls reserve forward Taj Gibson. But it didn't cut into the respect Tom Thibodeau has for him.

Gibson averaged 13 points and 6.8 rebounds a game last season, but the numbers fell to 10.3 and 6.4 this year. He contributed plenty down the stretch in the regular season, however, after returning from an ankle sprain. He also helped Chicago handle the length of Milwaukee in the first round. Thibodeau is thankful for what he brings to the table.

"Taj is always important," he told NBA.com. "That's the only thing you can't overlook, what he brings to our team, his defense, his rebounding. He's probably our best low-post defender. He's our best guy at moving his feet. Offensively it's hard to put a small on him - he can overpower you inside with his post game. Second shots. He's got a good 17-foot shot, it's not like you can disregard him. You've got to pay attention to him. He's critical for our team."

Gibson posted eight points on 3-of-5 shooting and five rebounds in 28 minutes in the Bulls' Game 1 victory in Cleveland.


Wizards' John Wall to seek another opinion for 'really bad' wrist sprain
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Wizards guard John Wall told reporters he's dealing with a "really bad sprain" in his wrist, which has given him trouble dribbling the ball the way he is accustomed to, per the team's official website.

Wall's injury stemmed from a nasty fall in Game 1 against Atlanta. He consulted with team doctors and opted to sit out Game 2. In his absence, Ramon Sessions got the start and scored a playoff career-high 21 points, but it wasn't enough as Washington dropped Game 2, 106-90.

According to David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com, Wall reiterated that his wrist isn't broken, and that he is expected to get another opinion back in Washington before the team determines a course of treatment.

The Wizards have until Saturday before determining his status for a pivotal Game 3 in Washington. The series is tied 1-1 through two games.


Grizzlies' Conley drops 22 in a triumphant Game 2 win over Warriors
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:35 am ET) Multiple facial fractures didn't hold Grizzlies guard Mike Conley back Tuesday night against Golden State. The point guard played with a clear mask and led his team with a triumphant 22-point performance to top the Warriors 97-90 in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

Conley went 8 of 12 from the field, including 3 of 6 from downtown, and 3 of 4 from the charity stripe. He added three assists while logging 27 minutes of game action. Conley's 22 points was his highest scoring effort in a playoff game since scoring 24 in Game 4 of the 2013 Western Conference Semifinals (May 13, 2013).
