Hawks' Paul Millsap 'wouldn't mind' guarding LeBron in Game 2


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) With Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll battling a knee injury, teammate Paul Millsap volunteered to guard LeBron James in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Millsap said he "wouldn't mind" guarding LeBron, per Cleveland.com.

After making the offer, Millsap admitted that me might be best used elsewhere. 

"We've got to be smart about it," he said. "If they've got (Timofey) Mozgov and Tristan Thompson in the game, more than likely not. Probably need to put a body on Tristan Thompson. Maybe if they go to a smaller lineup."


DeMarre Carroll injury may not get Hawks' Mike Scott more time


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) With Hawks small forward DeMarre Carroll questionable for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals with a sprained left knee, it's natural to assume that forward Mike Scott could be in line for more minutes. 

Not so fast, said coach Mike Budenholzer. Carroll's injury status has very little effect on Scott's, Budeholzer said, because he considers Scott a power forward, per Bleacher Report.

Scott has not played in the last five games, but he told NBA.com that he was "healthy and ready to go." When asked about his lack of time on the court, Scott said, "You'll have to ask Bud about that."


Cavaliers' LeBron James: I played too much isolation in Game 1


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Cavaliers forward LeBron James wasn't happy with his Game 1 performance. Despite leading the Cavs to a 97-89 win with 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists, James blamed himself for Atlanta's fourth-quarter rally that cut an 18-point Cleveland edge to four points. 

"I allowed them back into the game with my offensive nonsense," James told Fox Sports Ohio.

Later, James explained, "In the fourth quarter, I played way too much isolation basketball, one-on-one basketball [with] a lot of the defenses set, and I was letting the clock run down way too much. I just had to take the shot or I was giving it to my guys late in the shot clock and they couldn’t do nothing with it besides shoot it or turn the ball over," per ESPN.

When asked if he had microfacture surgery on his knee, Parsons would not reveal the type of knee surgery he had.

"I don't think they want me to answer whether it was or wasn't," he said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I see that he's out working really hard to get his knees into shape," Taylor said. "So I anticipate that he's interested in coming back. I can't say that for sure, but I don't know why he would be out there doing what he's doing if he didn't want to come back."

Garnett was traded to Minnesota from the Nets at the trade deadline, and was limited to only five games with the Timberwolves and missed the final 21 games of the season due knee issues. He averaged 6.9 points and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 46.7 percent from the field over 47 games.

Report: G Jeff Green likely staying with Grizzlies next year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

F Blake Griffin's 27 points not enough to stop Clippers' collapse


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Forward Blake Griffin racked up 27 points, but the Los Angeles Clippers could not figure out a way to reverse the momentum, losing a 3-1 advantage and the Western Conference semifinals Sunday to the Rockets, 113-100. 

Griffin was an impressive 13 of 23 from the floor, but only got to the line twice as the Clippers fell behind early and could never catch up. While Griffin was on the floor, the Clippers were minus-12.

Randy Wittman confident that Paul Pierce will return to Wizards


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) After the Wizards were eliminated on Friday, 37-year-old Paul Pierce wasn't ready to say that he would return next year for an 18th NBA season.

His coach is more confident, however. 

" I’d love him back. I think he wants to be back. I don’t know, I won’t put words in his mouth, but I’d be surprised if he didn’t. I think what he saw with these guys and the heart this team has. Why wouldn’t you want to play the end of your career with a group like that," Randy Wittman said on Saturday, per the Washington Post.


Food poisoning slowed Marcin Gortat in Wizards' Game 6 loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Wizards center Marcin Gortat played just 12 minutes in Friday's Game 6 loss that eliminated Washington from the NBA playoffs. Gortat scored just two points on 1-of-4 shooting. The playing time was a career low, and the scoring output matched his career worst. 

Gortat's light workload was due to a case of food poisoning that had plagued him for two days leading up to the game, per the Washington Post

"This morning I could barely walk pretty much. I didn’t feel right," Gortat said. "I came in here and I threw up in the locker room. I felt a little bit better after that. I took a couple shots, different IVs. I feel kind of better now but I ain’t going lie, the shots kind of numbed me out totally. I tried to just go out and do something. Coach gave me an opportunity the first few minutes and it didn’t work for me. He pulled me out."


Wizards F Paul Pierce: I might have nothing left in tank


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Perhaps it was an overreaction to the emotion he felt following a surreal ending to the Friday night playoff game in Washington and to his season. But seemingly ageless small forward Paul Pierce has indicated that the shot that left his hand a split-second too late to save his team could be his last in the NBA.

The 37-year-old Pierce swished a 3-pointer from the corner that would have tied Game 6 and kept the Wizards alive. But after examining replays, the officials waved it off. And when Pierce walked off the court, awash in the agony of defeat, he wondered if it was all over.

"Truthfully, what was going through my mind is, I don't have too much of these efforts left, if any," he told the Washington Post. "These rides throughout the NBA season, throughout the playoffs, are very emotional. They take a lot out of not only your body, but your mind, your spirit."

Pierce was brilliant through most of the playoffs. He averaged 14.6 points in 30 minutes per game and buried two buzzer-beaters to give his team victories. He shot 44-of-83 (53 percent) from the field until the last two defeats to the Hawks, when he hit just 4-of-16.
