Deron Williams suffered a left knee injury in the last minute of Friday's game against the Pacers.

Uh oh. He was in a lot of pain and the trainers were looking at him for a couple minutes. The trainer appeared to be looking at the outside of his left knee and there's nothing to report at this time. The Nets clinched home-court advantage in the first round and really aren't playing for anything unless Indiana collapses, so expect Deron to get some rest. C.J. Watson makes sense as a speculative add. Deron was outstanding on Friday with 33 points, 14 boards, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers.

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.

Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points on 8-of-24 shooting in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

The Thunder scored 72 points in the first half for the second straight game and the Warriors weren't able to recover. As for Durant, he had an incredible line with 11 rebounds, four assists, four steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer, though he did have a few turnovers. This was his second straight game with three blocks and his defense has been on full display in this series. The Thunder could advance to the NBA Finals with a win on Thursday in Game 5 as the series shifts back to Golden State.

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled with 36 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the Thunder to a 118-94 win in Game 4.

This gives the Thunder a commanding 3-1 series lead over the defending champs. Westbrook was dominant tonight, shooting 12-of-27 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line while adding four steals and four treys in 41 minutes. As good as he was on offense, Westbrook also held Stephen Curry in check, limiting the MVP to 19 points on 6-of-20 shooting. For what it's worth, teams that take a 3-1 series lead in the conference finals are 37-2 in NBA history.

Kyle Lowry was outstanding during a 105-99 win over the Cavs in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 35 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He was on fire early with 16 points on 100.0 effective field goal percentage to kick this game off. Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored a combined 67 points in their best combined scoring effort this postseason. To nobody's surprise, Raptors continue to go as Lowry goes in the postseason. During wins, he has a 56.9 true shooting percentage and a 2.5 assist:turnover ratio. In the losses, those numbers are 38.9 and 1.6, respectively. The Cavs should be doing all they can to stop Lowry.
May 24 - 12:06 AM

Bismack Biyombo was terrific yet again during a win over the Cavs on Monday, finishing with five points, 14 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 42 minutes.

His motor was out of control with some very good perimeter defense while he was still able to grab 11 defensive rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) didn't play in this game, but he might have a better chance on Wednesday. If the Raptors can continue to use him like this, Biyombo might be too valuable to lose any minutes to JV. Biyombo has made himself some serious money in the past two games.
May 23 - 11:57 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points for the second straight win over the Cavs on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

A big story for the Raptors was their free throw shooting. They became the first Conference Finals team since 2001 to not have a free throw in the first half with a 15-plus point lead, but then they went to the line 19 times in the second half as a team. As for DeRozan, he continues to thrive on contested shots and even fared better against LeBron James as the game went on -- he scored 12 in the fourth quarter on 5-of-6 from the field. We'll see how he handles playing in Cleveland on Wednesday.
May 23 - 11:52 PM

Jonas Valanciunas did not play in Game 4 on Monday.

The Raptors got off to a fantastic start to keep Valanciunas on the bench. Plus, the Cavs went with a lot of space on their offense, which would've made it really hard to use JV on defense. He'll have a couple days off before Game 5 on Wednesday.
May 23 - 11:44 PM

LeBron James couldn't carry his team to victory during a 105-99 loss to the Raptors in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 29 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 46 minutes.

It looked like the Cavs were going to pull off a huge comeback with 11 consecutive makes in the fourth quarter. James' fourth quarter numbers alone were eight points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal, but he didn't score in the final five minutes. James' 46 minutes tonight were his most of these playoffs, but the Cavs were smoked in the two minutes without him with a minus-60.0 net rating. The fourth quarter was the story with the Cavs with LeBron playing the entire fourth while none of the other starters played more than 6.3 minutes. After destroying the Raptors in the Game 1 and 2, this series is all tied up at two.
May 23 - 11:42 PM

Richard Jefferson played all 12 fourth-quarter minutes and 15 total minutes on Monday against the Raptors, finishing with eight points, one assist and no turnovers.

He played down the stretch as coach Ty Lue got a bit desperate. Lue continues to say it's not "fair" to Kevin Love to play in the fourth, so maybe Jefferson plays key minutes again. He's not a fantasy option, of course.
May 23 - 11:22 PM

Kevin Love did not play in the fourth quarter against the Raptors on Monday, finishing with 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He did look to hurt his left leg at the end of the third. Love didn't go to the locker room, so we'll be looking for an update. After Game 3, coach Ty Lue said it wasn't fair to play Love down the stretch, so maybe it was the same story. He hasn't played well at all in this series and is losing playing time to Channing Frye.
