Jermaine O'Neal (back) did not practice Tuesday.

The oft-injured O'Neal is dealing with continued spasms. He's fallen well behind Marcin Gortat anyway, averaging just 11.4 minutes over his last seven games.

Kawhi Leonard scored a career-high 32 points on 13-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, three steals and two blocks in the Spurs 100-73 Game 3 win over the Clippers on Friday.

We're going to float Spiderman out there as a nickname and see if it sticks. He was the best player on the floor tonight and it wasn't close, as we see the blossoming of a top-10 NBA player before our eyes. Tim Duncan added four points, seven boards, four assists, one steal and three blocks in the blowout win.

Chris Paul and Co. laid an egg in the Clippers' Game 3 loss to the Spurs, with Paul hitting just 3-of-11 shots for seven points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and six turnovers.

Paul was hardly the worst offender with Jamal Crawford hitting just 1-of-11 shots in 23 minutes. J.J. Redick went 2-of-7 for seven points and not much else, and Blake Griffin was 6-of-15 from the field for 14 points, 10 boards, five assists and a block. This was your prototypical goose egg and they'll look to get back on track in Sunday's Game 4.

Paul Pierce scored 18 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds in Friday's 106-99 Game 3 win over the Raptors.

The stat line isn't huge but most of his buckets were and the Wiz can now sweep with a win on Sunday. John Wall scored 19 points on 5-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, 15 assists, one steal and one block in the win.
Apr 24 - 11:15 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points on 11-of-29 shooting (3-of-6 3PTs, 7-of-7 FTs) with six rebounds, six assists and one steal in Friday's Game 3 loss to the Wizards.

DeRozan and Kyle Lowry were both guilty of bad shot selection and going down 3-0 the backcourt play has been a big storyline in this series. Of course, both engaged in trash talk with Paul Pierce and it's fair to wonder if they lost focus as things started to spin out of control. Game 4 is on Sunday in Washington.
Apr 24 - 11:02 PM

Amir Johnson moved into the starting lineup and double-doubled in Friday's Game 3 loss to the Wizards, scoring 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

Johnson is a gamer and he'll bring his gimpy ankles into Sunday's Game 4 with reckless abandon, and as long as we don't get any bad news he could be a sneaky low-end play in DFS leagues.
Apr 24 - 10:57 PM

Kyle Lowry hit just 5-of-22 shots in Friday's Game 3 loss to the Wizards, finishing with 15 points, four rebounds, seven assists, four steals and three treys in 38 minutes.

Lowry came into the game with an illness, a shin contusion and a bad back. He hasn't been himself all series long and it's a big reason the Raptors have yet to win a game in the series. It's hard to see him getting back to 100 percent before Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 24 - 10:55 PM

James Harden scored 42 points on 15-of-24 shooting (5-of-7 3PTs, 7-of-7 FTs) with five rebounds, nine assists and one steal in the Rockets' 130-128 win over the Mavs in Game 3 on Friday.

The Mavs fielded one of the worst defensive squads we've seen in the playoffs in a very long time, if not the worst of all time. The Rockets take a 3-0 lead into Sunday's Game 4 matchup and with a win they'll be able to rest up for the winner of the Spurs-Clippers series.
Apr 24 - 10:01 PM

Dwight Howard grabbed a career-high 26 rebounds in Friday's Game 3 win over the Mavs, and also chipped in with 13 points, three assists, two steals and two blocks.

Howard has looked great so far in the playoffs and owners can deal with his long-term knee issues over the summer at this rate. Terrence Jones went for 12 and six, Corey Brewer scored 15 points, and Josh Smith added 18 points, three rebounds, four assists and two triples in the win.
Apr 24 - 9:58 PM

Coach Gregg Popovich said Aron Baynes (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Clippers.

Not even a mask can get Baynes to play, apparently. It's a little interesting and unusual for Pop to reveal Baynes' status for this game. As we all know, theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated. It sounds like Baynes will be out for a couple games. Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw will play more.
Apr 24 - 7:54 PM

Chris Kaman (ankle) and Arron Afflalo (shoulder) are planning to play on Saturday in Game 3.

Kaman is listed as questionable and he said he didn't do anything in practice on Friday. "I know once I tape it and get the right drugs in me, everything will be good," Kaman said. "I’m ready to play tomorrow." He's likely looking at minutes in the teens and will bump Joel Freeland out of the rotation while taking away some time from Meyers Leonard.
Apr 24 - 7:44 PM

Ami Johnson will start at power forward in place of Tyler Hansbrough in Game 3 on Friday.

Hansbrough literally had nothing positive to offer on the stat sheet in 12 minutes on Saturday with only one foul and one missed field goal attempt. The Wizards led the NBA in player efficiency rating allowed to power forwards this regular season, so Johnson may have a tough time putting up a big line. He'll also really need to avoid foul trouble, which is a problem for him. Patrick Patterson should also play more than Psycho T.
