Harden, Howard set playoff highs in Rockets' win over Mavericks
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:34 am ET) Rockets guard James Harden and center Dwight Howard both set career playoff highs to lead Houston to a 130-128 victory over Dallas and a 3-0 series lead in the opening round of the playoffs.

"James was great tonight," coach Kevin McHale said, per the Houston Chronicle. "What can you say? I've seen it a lot this year. The guy has played fantastic. A big game when we needed him to play well. He did. He stepped up."

Harden led the charge offensively, scoring a career playoff high 42 points and dishing our a team-high nine assists, while Howard dominated the boards, grabbing a postseason best and a franchise record 26 rebounds. He outrebounded the rest of his teammates 26-20. Harden's previous career playoff high was 37 against the Trail Blazers last year. Howard's previous best in rebounds was 24 in 2009, when he led the Magic to the NBA Finals.

"Dwight was unreal. He got every rebound and was just a beast down there," McHale told reporters after the game, per the Chronicle.


Mavs guard Devin Harris fights through toe injury to play 21 minutes
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:01 am ET) Mavericks guard Devin Harris was able to play 21 minutes off the bench Friday against the Rockets, despite a painful toe injury

“I think everybody’s sore at this point,” Harris said, per The Dallas Morning News. “It’s a battle out there. I felt like we played hard enough to win, we just didn’t execute well enough to win.

“It (his foot) is good enough. I was a little limited out there, but I was able to get where I needed to go.”

Harris has 10 points on 3 of 8 shooting. He also went 4 of 5 from the free-throw line, while adding one rebound and two assists in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal matchup vs. Houston.


Mavs guard Raymond Felton (hamstring) expects to play Game 4
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Mavericks guards Raymond Felton made his first playoff start Friday against the Rockets for the first time since May 18, 2013 for the Knicks. However, he would last just 13 minutes Friday due to a hamstring injury.

Felton said he tweaked his right hamstring in the first quarter of the Western Conference Quarterfinal matchup and was only able to play four minutes after halftime.

“It was really tight in the third quarter,” Felton said, per The Dallas Morning News. “I’ll be out there (in Game 4), no matter what. They’ll have to cut my leg off for me not to play.”

Felton missed all three shots he took Friday and finished with no points. He had one assist and four rebounds.


Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (shin) in lineup for Game 3 vs. Wizards
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (shin) was in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Wizards. Lowry missed the final five minutes of a Game 2 loss due to a shin contusion.

Lowry has not done well offensively through the first two playoff games. He is averaging just 6.5 points and shooting 25 percent (5 for 20) from the field. He is averaging 4.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds.


Warriors F James McAdoo out, C David Lee in for Game 4
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Two Warriors have received quite different statuses for their Game 4 battle Saturday in New Orleans.

Small forward James McAdoo (flu) has been downgraded from questionable to out. But center David Lee (back) has been removed from the injury report.

The former received some playing time down the stretch in the regular season. Lee played more significantly, but has yet to get into a playoff game.


Status of F Nikola Mirotic for Game 4 remains uncertain
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The bruised left knee of Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic is improving, but the team remains unsure of his status for Game 4 of their playoff series against Milwaukee, The Associated Press has reported.

Mirotic might not be available until at least a likely second-round battle against Cleveland. The Bulls can complete a sweep of the Bucks on Saturday.

Tom Thibodeau said it was a good sign that Mirotic has been shooting, but admitted that he was doing no running. "We don't want to jump ahead," Thibodeau said. "If he's ready to play, he plays; if he's not ready to play, he'll sit. It's that simple."


Thibodeau: Bulls F Nikola Mirotic didn't run Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic (knee) increased his workload Friday, but was still unable to run, Tom Thibodeau told ESPN. It remains to be seen if he's available when Chicago attempts to complete a first-round playoff sweep of Milwaukee on Saturday.

Mirotic played 35 minutes combined in the first two games before going down.


Blazers C Kaman questionable, G Afflalo probable for Game 3
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Trail Blazers have announced that center Chris Kaman (ankle sprain) has been listed as questionable while guard Arron Afflalo (right shoulder sprain) has been deemed probable for Game 3 of their playoff series Saturday against Memphis. 

Afflalo has yet to appear in the series while Kaman racked up seven points and six rebounds in 14 minutes in Game 1 before his absence in Game 2.


Bulls F Taj Gibson overcoming injuries to contribute
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Ankle and shoulder ailments have Bulls forward Taj Gibson hurting, but he's not about to limit himself in the playoffs. He was given a cortisone shot in his shoulder last week, but an injury to teammate and fellow forward Nikola Mirotic has forced him into extra playing time.

"It's tough," he told the Chicago Tribune. "But you still have to go out there and do your best."

Gibson snagged eight rebounds in the fourth quarter in the double-overtime defeat of Milwaukee in Game 3 that placed the Bulls on the verge of a sweep.

"I was just determined," an exhausted Gibson said. "It's the playoffs. You can't worry about injuries right now. I'm just trying to be there for my teammates any way I can."


Tony Parker in, Aron Baynes out for Spurs in Game 3
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Spurs have announced that star guard Tony Parker will be on the court Friday when his team hosts the Clippers. He had been dealing with an Achilles ailment and was considered questionable.

Not all their news is good, however. Center Aron Baynes (sprained ankle) will not suit up for the game.

Parker has been greatly stifled so far in the series. He's averaging just 5.5 points per game and shooting 23 percent from the field.
