Alan Anderson scored a team-high 20 points against the Heat on Wednesday with one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He took a whopping 12 3-point attempts in the game, which accounted for 39 percent of the team's attempts. Anderson has taken a boatload of threes this month and he has logged 33.3 minutes per game in his last four games, so he should be owned in all standard leagues.

LeBron James scored 19 points on 9-of-22 shooting with 15 rebounds, nine assists, three steals, one block and six turnovers in Monday's 99-92 Game 1 loss to the Cavs.

James is going to get his numbers no matter what and it's just a matter of whether or not he gets slowed down in the process -- and Jimmy Butler helped make that happen a bit tonight. The Cavs got 22 points out of Iman Shumpert to help offset the loss of J.R. Smith to a two-game suspension, but their defense was terrible and now they've lost home court advantage right out of the gate. Game 2 is on Wednesday.

Derrick Rose scored 25 points on 11-of-26 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in Monday's Game 1 win over the Cavs.

Rose looked like he may have hurt his shoulder seriously at the end of the game but all reports since then have indicated the issue was minor. Jimmy Butler was the more important and better player for the Bulls, but Rose is the player that will swing this series one way or another so Chicago fans have to love the solid outing. Coming off two day's worth of rest, he hasn't been anywhere near as good with the one day he'll get before Wednedsay's Game 2.

Austin Rivers will start for injured Chris Paul (hamstring) in Monday's Game 1 opener against the Rockets.

Rivers won't face an impact defender and he'll have quite a bit of playing time to put points on the board, but look for the offense to be run through Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes.

Chris Paul (hamstring) will not play in Game 1 on Monday.

Ouch. Coach Doc Rivers expects Paul to play at some point in this series, but it won't be tonight. He's also at risk of missing Game 2 on Wednesday. The Clippers will have to count on Austin Rivers a ton tonight. Blake Griffin also has a great chance for a triple-double.

Mike Conley (face) said he believes he'll play on Tuesday.

He did warm up on Sunday and did go through practice on Monday. However, the sense around the team is that he won't be able to play in Game 2. The Grizzlies will host Game 3 on Saturday, so all that time off should help Conley get out there. For now, Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes will get some run on Tuesday, but consider Conley a 50/50 guy to play. There will be another update at shootaround tomorrow.

Iman Shumpert and Mike Miller will start against the Bulls on Monday, according to Chris Haynes of the Plain Dealer.

It's not a surprise whatsoever to see Miller get the start over Tristan Thompson. LeBron James played a lot of power forward in Game 4 against the Celtics, so expect that to continue going forward. Shumpert will get minutes, but his usage rate will be very tiny in the next two games. Miller is not a great fantasy option either. With Love out, the biggest beneficiary might be Kyrie Irving.

Stephen Curry has officially been named the 2014-15 NBA MVP.

Chef Curry is indeed cooking with the pot. After unofficial word slipped out on Sunday, the league wasted no time in making the announcement official on Monday. James Harden finished second, LeBron James finished third and Russell Westbrook finished fourth with Anthony Davis (fifth) and Chris Paul (sixth) rounding out the order.

Mike Conley (face, eye) is unlikely to play in Game 2 vs. the Warriors, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

The Grizzlies and Warriors don't square off until Tuesday night for Game 2, but with Conley still being bothered by noise and bright lights in addition to continued facial swelling, it would be miraculous if we saw him before Game 3 at the very earliest. It's also unclear if Conley will have to go through the NBA's concussion protocol, which could potentially push his return date back further. Nick Calathes and Beno Udrih will continue to try and fill in for Conley.

Blazers GM Neil Olshey wouldn't commit to re-signing Wesley Matthews this offseason.

"We know his value to us; we also know he's going to have market value around the league," he said. Matthews is coming off a torn Achilles, and after the Blazers absolutely fell apart without him, his free-agent case looks pretty good despite the injury. He should have no problem getting a variety of multi-year offers, and his future could very well be outside of Portland. If he leaves, the Blazers are going to have a very tough time replacing what he brings to the table. Both the player and the team have now been noncommittal about remaining together.

Danny Green said that he hopes to re-sign with the Spurs this offseason.

Green will be an unrestricted free agent, but San Antonio also has to address Kawhi Leonard's free agency as well as a potential new deal for Tim Duncan and/or Manu Ginobili. Green should get some really solid offers in free agency after averaging 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocks and 2.4 triples (41.8 percent) on 43.6 percent shooting overall.
May 4 - 9:31 AM

With J.R. Smith serving a two-game suspension, Iman Shumpert is expected to start at shooting guard for Monday's Game 1 vs. the Bulls.

"I think I’ll get more opportunities just playing more minutes," Shumpert said. "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." The Cavs are very short-handed with Smith out two games and Kevin Love (shoulder) done for the playoffs, so in addition to Shump they'll need more production from Tristan Thompson, James Jones, Matthew Dellavedova and possibly Shawn Marion or Mike Miller.
