by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3:01 pm ET) After scoring only seven points in the Game 1 loss to the Wizards, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry attributed the lack of success to having a bad game and not a back issue, reports the Toronto Sun.

Lowry has been suffering from back spasms, which caused him to miss a variety of games toward the end of the season, but Lowry said he is feeling great heading into Game 2 on Tuesday.

The Raptors are 5-point favorites for Game 2 against the Wizards.

Pistons F Caron Butler would like to return next season
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:29 pm ET) Pistons forward Caron Butler said he feels playing in Detroit is a good fit for him, reports the Detroit Free Press.

"I'm in a good situation," he said. "I like where we're at. I like what we've been able to accomplish, being better than we were prior, and I feel like I've got my fingerprints all over these guys. So it's a great opportunity to come back and continue the thing on."

Despite coming off a career low in points and minutes, Butler said if he doesn't play for the Pistons next season, he would like to play for a contender.

"If not, obviously, the best thing for me is to contend," Butler said. "It's either one or the other. But I won't be looking for another situation to start over with some guys and stuff like that again. It's either do this or contend for it all."

The Mavericks are 6 1/2-point underdogs to the Rockets for Game 2.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
