Carl Landry scored 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 5-of-10 shots (10-of-12 from the foul line) with six rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 24 minutes.

Andrew Bogut is still a mess with his ankle, and Landry has played so well that media are calling for him to play down the stretch of games over David Lee at times. There are holes in Landry's fantasy game, but there is certainly enough meat to the bone right now to make an add. It doesn't hurt that Brandon Rush's injury opened up minutes across the rotation, too.

Jaylen Brown scored a career-high 34 points on 13-of-24 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Bucks, adding five treys, eight boards, three steals and one assist over 41 minutes.

Brown essentially single-handedly kept the Celtics in the game, helping Boston go on a huge second-half surge to bring down a 20-point deficit to just eight heading into the final frame of action, but ultimately, it was not enough to deliver the win. He also went 3-of-4 from the charity stripe to give him a sterling 66.0 true shooting percentage to accompany his 28.4 usage rate, but aside from Jayson Tatum (21 points, two triples, three boards, three dimes and two steals), he didn’t receive much help from his teammates on the offensive end.

Giannis Antetokounmpo came through with 27 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two turnovers in Milwaukee's 104-102 win over Boston on Sunday.

The Bucks successfully protected their home court, evening up their first-round series with the Celtics at two apiece, and The Greek Freak came through with some huge buckets in the clutch including a game-winning tip-in with 5 seconds left. He did tweak his ankle during the fourth quarter after coming down on Aron Baynes’ foot, but his ankle didn’t turn all that much and he played through it, so he should be fine for Tuesday’s Game 5 in Boston.

Steve Kerr said that Stephen Curry (knee) won't be coming back "anytime soon."

Kerr did say that Curry has been coming along well, and that he looked good at Saturday's practice, but he still has "a few limitations" that he's trying to work through. The good news is that he hasn't been experiencing any pain in his left knee, and while Kerr did say he's "on track," he wouldn't commit to an official timetable. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated on April 27, but it doesn't sound like he'll be ready for Game 1 of Round 2.

John Henson (back soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's Game 4.

No surprise here, as Henson was listed as doubtful after sitting out Game 3. Thon Maker gave the Bucks a huge lift in Game 3 with 14 points, five rebounds, five blocks and three triples, and we should see more of Jabari Parker and Tyler Zeller as well.

Ricky Rubio was the best player on the floor during a 115-102 Game 3 win over the Thunder on Saturday, scoring 26 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Obviously it's his first playoff triple-double, but he is the first Jazzman to notch one of those since John Stockton in 2001. He was on fire in the first half with 19 points, and he hit a massive 3-pointer at the buzzer to end the third. On the lighter side, Rubio had a man bun today, and it's worth a mention he's put up more points, boards and dimes while being more efficient and posting a 14.5 net rating when he has a man bun compared to without one (H/T SLC Dunk). Hairstyle stats aside, the Jazz are so hot right now.

Rudy Gobert scored 18 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 41 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He had such a huge impact on this game with putting fouls on Steven Adams and just owning the paint on the defensive side. Offensively, he continues to set high screens to set the halfcourt offense, and he picked up five offensive boards today. Gobert isn't going to lead the Jazz in scoring in just about all the games this season, but his presence on both ends makes the Jazz who they are. Don't be surprise to see the Jazz take this series.

Joe Ingles was left open all game against the Thunder during a win on Saturday, scoring 21 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Yeah, OKC gets a lot of blame for continuing to leave Ingles open in the corner because they were helping too hard on the weak side. Ingles may not have the prettiest shot, but he made 44.0 percent from deep this year and 44.1 percent from last season. Coach Billy Donovan will be talking to his guys about this one.
Apr 22 - 12:45 AM

Russell Westbrook had a brutal showing against the Jazz on Saturday during a 115-102 loss in Game 3, making 5-of-17 from the field for 14 points with 11 rebounds, nine assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and eight turnovers.

Rudy Gobert's rim protection neutralized Westbrook's driving in a big way, and Westbrook was not at his best against Ricky Rubio or on defensive rotations -- the whole team, basically. Westbrook has struggled down the stretch for two games straight, which is a problem for a guy that sucks up so much usage. OKC is in trouble.

Jimmy Butler scored 28 points during a 121-105 Game 3 win over the Rockets on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

The Wolves are alive as they earn their first home playoff win since 2004. As for Butler, he did tweak his left ankle in the second quarter as he landed on someone's foot going for a rebound. Butler stayed in the game, but he did look a step slow to start the third quarter before really heating up later. Butler has described himself as one of the toughest in the NBA, so it would be a shock to see him have limitations on Monday. We have a series.
Apr 21 - 10:27 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday during a Game 3 win.

This was not the regular-season Wiggins, especially going 4-of-6 from deep. Plus, his five dimes match his best output in that category all season while he was effective on defense. If the Wolves can somehow get this output from Wiggins in this series, the Rockets may have a tougher time closing out than almost anyone thought.
Apr 21 - 10:14 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 18 points with 16 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

His first shot attempt didn't come until 10:46 left in the second quarter, but he got it going in the second half. The Rockets have made it clear they don't want KAT to beat them after he averaged just 6.5 points in the first two games, but so many players getting it going for the Wolves made it tougher to key in on Towns. Maybe he'll get off to a better start in Game 4 on Monday for his first monster playoff line.
