LeBron James had a season-high 40 points, eight rebounds, a career-high 16 assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer, while hitting 14-of-23 shots and 11-of-12 free throws in Tuesday's double-overtime win against the Kings.

This is getting ridiculous, as James became the first player since Kevin Johnson to record a 40 & 16 game since Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson did it back in 1994, and joined Oscar Robertson as the only player to ever go for multiple games of 40 points, 15 assists and five rebounds, although the Big-O did it 11 times. Feel free to debate the MVP all you like, but as of now, it would be shocking if LeBron doesn't win it this season. It's also worth noting that the Heat were playing their fifth game in seven nights, LeBron is supposedly dealing with a quad injury, and he played 48 minutes tonight. And the kicker is he plays four games per week in each of the next four scoring periods.

The Rockets are reportedly finalizing a four-year deal to install Mike D'Antoni as their next head coach.

D'Antoni officially beats out Stephen Silas for the head coaching gig in Houston, and the D'Antoni hire all but guarantees that Dwight Howard will be donning a different jersey next season. D'Antoni is a fantasy friendly coach, and his uptempo style will lead to more fantasy goodness for all those involved. With Howard assuredly gone and both Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas bound for free agency, Clint Capela could find himself in a starting role next season. As for James Harden, his numbers are sure to be ridiculous with D'Antoni at the helm.

Grizzlies sign David Fizdale as head coach, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The Grizzlies offered the position to Fizdale on Wednesday, so it didn't take long for him to accept their offer. The former Heat assistant will sign a four-year deal to become the Grizzlies next head coach, according to Woj.

LeBron James racked up 23 points, eight assists and six steals in just 32 minutes on Wednesday, as the Cavs rolled to a dominant 116-78 victory.

LeBron was on pace for a triple-double if it weren't a blowout, and he's now scored at least 20 points in 23 consecutive postseason games. Needless to say, he's been one of the steadiest DFS options in the playoffs this year. He's one win away from his sixth consecutive Finals appearance, and one free throw away from passing Kobe Bryant for second place in career postseason free throws (1,320), trailing only Michael Jordan (1,463).

Kyle Lowry scored only 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting during Wednesday's crushing road loss, adding six assists, three rebounds and five turnovers in 29 minutes.

The Cavs trapped Lowry at every opportunity and he struggled as a result, going scoreless for the first 18 minutes of the game. It's been a tale of two cities for Lowry in the series -- he's averaging 27.5 points in two home games, but just 11.3 points in three road games. Toronto has now been outscored in 11 of 12 quarters in Cleveland during the series, which is a huge hurdle even if they tie it up with a home win in Game 6.

Kevin Love (left knee) finished Game 5 with 25 points on 8-of-10 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs, hitting three 3-pointers with two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in just 24 minutes.

Love was awful in his previous two games, shooting 5-of-23 from the field, and he didn't even play in the fourth quarter of Game 4 -- he sat out the fourth again tonight, but only because of the lopsided score. He played with renewed energy tonight, scoring 12 points on 4-of-4 shooting in the first quarter alone, and could have had a much bigger line if it weren't for garbage time. Love's reemergence is a terrific sign for the Cavs, who are now one victory away from the Finals. Follow the link below to enjoy one of Love's patented full-court outlet passes.

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) has no minute-limit and coach Dwane Casey hopes to play him early in the game.

"We hope to get him in, find him some minutes and get his feet wet," Casey said. "It might be a shock to his lungs." Casey doesn't like JV matching up vs. Channing Frye and the Cavs' second unit, but isn't ready to start him ahead of Bismack Biyombo, given the Raptors' recent success. Unfortunately for DFS purposes, Biyombo's playing time should take a hit with Valanciunas in the mix.

Draymond Green will not be suspended for tripping Enes Kanter during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

Green is just one flagrant foul away from a suspension, but the league has reportedly decided not to upgrade his foul on Kanter to a flagrant 1 foul, meaning he's in the clear for Thursday's Game 5 against OKC. Green has been a shell of himself over the past two games, and he knows that he'll need to come with a much stronger effort during Game 5 if the Dubs hope to send the series back to OKC for a Game 6.

Joakim Noah has reportedly been telling his Chicago teammates that he's done with the organization and will be looking to go elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Noah reportedly has no faith in Bulls' GM Gar Forman being able to put the pieces together to turn the Chicago franchise around, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of offers he can secure on the open market after his previous two seasons have been cut short due to injury. Noah will likely sign a one-year "show-me" deal in order to reestablish his value as a free agent, but the injury concerns will make him a tough guy to target prior to the final few rounds on draft day.

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) said that he's "ready to go" for Wednesday's Game 5 in Cleveland.

"I'm ready to go," said Valanciunas. "Percentage wise? I don't know. My ankle doesn't say the percentage." Valanciunas will again be available to play on Wednesday, but Cavs' head coach Tyronn Lue implied that they'll go with a healthy heaping of Channing Frye at the five-spot for Game 5, which Dwane Casey has acknowledged is a difficult matchup for JV. If Valanciunas does take the court Wednesday night, it'll likely be in a limited capacity, so he's still not that great of a fantasy option.

Stephen Curry (knee) is playing "at 70 percent, at best," according to a source of Adrian Wojnarowski.

While unnamed sources dispute the health of Curry's knee, you won't hear Curry, nor head coach Steve Kerr making any excuses. Curry said he was "fine" after Game 4's loss, and Kerr stated that he's "not injured," but Curry's lack of explosion and inability to take advantage of the bigs when they switch on him tells a bit of a different story. To be clear, Curry is in zero danger of spending any time on the sidelines, and the Dubs will need him to look more like MVP-Curry if they hope to secure a Game 5 win when they return to their home court on Thursday.

Stephen Curry struggled in Tuesday's 118-94 loss in Game 4, scoring 19 points on 6-of-20 shooting.

He was also just 2-of-10 from beyond the arc with six turnovers, adding five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes. As much as Curry struggled, coach Steve Kerr made it clear after the game that the MVP is not injured. "Steph Curry is not injured," Kerr said. "He just had a lousy night. It happens." With Golden State trailing 3-1, they will need a much better effort from Curry for the Warriors to get back in this series.
