Wizards Wall, Beal ready to fight through injuries for Game 2
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) The Wizards grabbed Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Atlanta Hawks despite guards John Wall and Bradley Beal both suffering what first appeared to be scary injuries during the contest. However, per The Washington Post, both players say they will be ready for Game 2 on Tuesday. 

Wall injured his wrist and hand after falling to the floor after a layup attempt. He returned quickly to the game, but did grab it several times. 

"If it's not broken, I'll play through anything," Wall said.

Beal's injury is a little more tricky. After turning his ankle on the follow through of a jump shot, the guard seemed in intense pain. Beal has a history of leg injuries, so he was a little more cautious about his status. 

"Even if I'm not a threat, I can still be a decoy," Beal said. 


Cavaliers G Iman Shumpert to start in Game 1
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) With shooting guard J.R. Smith suspended for two games, the Cavaliers will turn to Iman Shumpert to start Game 1 against the Bulls, per the Morning Journal

"I think I'll get more opportunities just playing more minutes if J.R. is out, but as far as going in with a different mindset, it's not like I'm going to transform into J.R. for the team," he said. "It just doesn't go like that. You just got to sort of do your part."

Shumpert averaged 8.0 points and 3.6 rebounds in 62 regular season games with the Knicks and Cavaliers. 


Clippers PG Chris Paul passes MRI, still questionable for Game 1
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) The results on the MRI to Chris Paul's injured hamstring came back negative on Sunday, but he remains a game-time decision for the opener of the Western Conference semis between the Clippers and Warriors, per ESPN.com. 

Paul was hurt earlier in Saturday's game against the Spurs but returned to hit the dramatic game winner that sent the Clippers into the next round. 


Marc Gasol's solid game not enough for Grizzlies
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) The Grizzlies have an interior advantage in their Western Conference semifinal series against the Warriors and on Sunday, center Marc Gasol was able to make a living at the free throw line, but it wasn't enough in Memphis 101-86 loss. 

Gasol finished with 21 points, nine rebounds, three assists and three steals. He was 11-of-12 from the charity stripe, the only Grizzlies player to shoot more than four free throws. 


Stephen Curry scores 22 as Warriors roll to Game 1 victory
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Stephen Curry got off to a slow start but warmed up quickly as the Warriors ran past the Grizzlies 101-86 Sunday to capture Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinals series. 

Curry added seven assists and four steals as the Warriors kept Memphis at bay for most of the game. Curry was 4-of-8 from behind the arc and finished 8-for-18 from the floor as Golden State shot 50.6 percent in the victory. 


DeMarre Carroll's huge first half not enough for Hawks
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Entering Sunday's Game 1 against Washington, the Hawks' DeMarre Carroll had scored 20 points or more in four straight postseason games. He extended his streak by halftime. 

Carroll had already surpassed his career high for postseason points by halftime, with 21. It was the most a Hawks player has scored in a half this season, and Carroll became the first Hawk with five straight 20-point postseason games since Dominique Wilkins in 1989. 

Carroll cooled in the second half, finishing with 24 in the Hawks' 104-98 loss to Washington. 


Early wrist injury doesn't slow Wizards' John Wall
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Wizards guard John Wall went down with an apparent wrist injury in the first half of Sunday's 104-98 Game 1 win over Atlanta. 

Wall went to the bench briefly, then returned to the game without heading to the locker room for an examination. He finished the game with 18 points and 13 assists to help the Wizards take home-court advantage from Atlanta. 


Wizards' Bradley Beal shakes off sprained ankle in Game 1
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Wizards guard Bradley Beal sprained his right ankle late in Game 1. The team said that he was questionable to return, but he ended up missing four minutes, 18 seconds of game time. 

Beal returned to the contest midway through the fourth quarter, and his 28 points led the Wizards to a 104-98 Game 1 win over Atlanta. 


Warriors' Stephen Curry, Draymond Green benefit from time off
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) The Warriors wrapped up their first-round series last Saturday, and coach Steve Kerr said the team benefitted from the time off. 

Kerr said that Stephen Curry looked "bouncy and fresh" in practice, and Draymond Green's injured ankle was able to heal, per the San Francisco Chronicle


J.J. Barea wants to stay with Mavericks
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) J.J. Barea is a free agent this offseason, but he made it clear that he wants to remain with the Mavericks. 

"I want to. I want to and hopefully this time we make it work," per Mavs Moneyball. "I had a lot of fun this year. I enjoyed being back. It feels like home for me here in Dallas so hopefully I can come back and finish my career here for the next couple years."

Barea left the Mavericks in 2011, when he was a free agent, but he doesn't anticipate history repeating itself.

"It's going to be a little different," he said. "I think at that point I had to make a decision. This time I think it'll be a lot easier to keep me around."
