Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said the team plans to keep John Wall for a "long, long time."

All signs point to Washington making Wall a max player and extending him long-term in the offseason, and frankly the Wizards really have no choice. Wall displayed improvement when he got on the floor this season, and the team has to be hopeful he'll continue to evolve his game and his chemistry with Bradley Beal will continue to grow. Don't expect Wall to be wearing a different uniform any time soon.

Paul George finished the Pacers' tense 89-84 defeat in Game 7 on Sunday with 26 points (8-of-18 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, four 3-pointers, three steals and one assist.

George got off to a torrid start, including a 360 dunk in the first quarter, but Toronto zeroed in on him defensively (forcing seven turnovers) and his singular brilliance wasn't enough tonight. It was nevertheless a tremendous year for PG-13, who bounced back from a lost season to average 23.1 points, 2.6 threes, 7.0 boards, 4.1 assists and 1.9 steals while playing in 81 games during the 2015-16 regular season.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 30 points to help Toronto advance to the second round on Sunday, making 10-of-32 shots with five boards, two assists, three steals, two blocks and just one turnover in 40 minutes.

DeRozan ranked third in the NBA for free throw attempts this season, at 8.4 per game, but he averaged just 5.0 freebies in Games 1-6 vs. the Pacers. He got hot early tonight with 13 first-quarter points and wound up 9-of-9 at the line, while his 32 field goal attempts set a franchise playoff-high for Toronto. His first-round inefficiency is water under the bridge now that he's helped his team advance in the playoffs for the first time since 2001.

Cory Joseph had another terrific game on Sunday, posting eight points, three rebounds, four assists and one block in the Raptors' series-clinching 89-84 home victory.

Joseph is shining in the national spotlight, and his two-way play off the bench is a big reason Toronto won their first playoff series since 2001. His penetration helped Toronto win the fastbreak battle for the first time all series, 12-8, and he was even more critical with Kyle Lowry (11 points on 5-of-14 FGs) struggling for most of the game.
May 1 - 10:48 PM

Norman Powell played like a seasoned veteran during Sunday's thrilling Game 7 victory, posting 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting with three 3-pointers, three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 23 minutes.

Powell was a throw-in when the Raptors traded Greivis Vasquez to the Bucks for a 2017 first-round pick, but he's proven to be a diamond in the rough for Toronto. The former No. 46 pick bodied up Paul George defensively despite giving up five inches, he thrived in catch-and-shoot situations, and he consistently made smart decisions. He'll be on Miami's radar when the Raptors host the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern semi-finals.
May 1 - 10:43 PM

The Kings reportedly plan to interview David Blatt for their vacant head coach position.

The interview will take place on Monday and Blatt is one of many candidates for the Kings job, joining already-interviewed coaches Sam Mitchell, Mike Woodson and Vinny Del Negro. Blatt has also been linked to vacant head coaching jobs with the Knicks and Lakers, so there's a good chance that he'll be pacing the sidelines for an NBA team in 2016-17.
May 1 - 9:25 PM

C.J. McCollum shot just 5-of-17 from the field on Sunday to finish a Game 1 defeat with 12 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 40 minutes.

The Warriors' length and ability to switch pick-and-rolls was once again a deciding factor, as it helped to limit McCollum and Damian Lillard to combined 30.2 percent shooting in Game 1. He had a quiet Game 1 vs. the Clippers in the first round, before heating up throughout that series, so ideally he'll make a few adjustments to get himself going for Tuesday's Game 2.
May 1 - 6:34 PM

Draymond Green racked up a triple-double on Sunday with 23 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, helping Golden State earn a 1-0 series lead over the Blazers.

It was Green's second postseason triple-double and he filled up the boxscore everywhere, adding two 3-pointers, two blocks and one steal with just two turnovers in 37 minutes. He spearheaded a terrific defensive effort, as usual, limiting the Blazers to 40.2 percent shooting in a game that wasn't as close the final score of 118-106.
May 1 - 6:25 PM

Klay Thompson scored a personal playoff-high 37 points during Sunday's Game 1 win vs. the Blazers, making 14-of-28 shots with seven 3-pointers, five boards, five assists and two steals.

Portland had no answer for Thompson defensively and he's now the first player in NBA history with at least seven 3-pointers in three consecutive games. Stephen Curry has a "slim" chance of playing in Game 2, but a Game 3 return is more probable. With Thompson and Draymond Green carrying the Warriors to a blowout win in Game 1, the Warriors can afford to be extra cautious with their ailing MVP.
May 1 - 6:12 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) said that there is a "pretty good" chance that he will be able to play in Game 3 vs. the Blazers on Saturday.

His chances of playing in Game 2 on Tuesday are reportedly pretty "slim," but it sounds like he's making good progress and coach Steve Kerr said that he might start scrimmaging later this week. There are going to be a ton of updates on the MVP all week, so expect another one on Monday. Shaun Livingston will hold down the fort at point guard until Curry can return.
May 1 - 5:16 PM

Kemba Walker scored just nine points on 3-of-16 shooting in Sunday's 106-73 loss to the Heat in Game 7, adding six assists, two boards, one steal and one 3-pointer.

His nine points were the second fewest in a Game 7 by a player who averaged 25 points per game in the first six games of a series. As bad as Walker was on Sunday, he had a breakout campaign with averages of 20.9 points, 5.2 assists, 4.4 boards, 1.6 steals and 2.2 3-pointers during the regular season, returning top-20 value in standard 9-cat leagues. The 25-year-old guard will be a solid early-round pick in fantasy drafts next season.
May 1 - 3:47 PM

Goran Dragic scored 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting to lead the Heat to a 106-73 win over the Hornets in Game 7 on Sunday.

The Dragon had a quiet series prior to Sunday with modest averages of 12.3 points, 4.3 boards, 4.3 assists, and 0.8 steals, but he picked the perfect moment to erupt. Dragic was arguably the best player on the court today, adding six rebounds, four assists and one block in 32 minutes. The Heat will now move on to face the winner of Sunday's Game 7 between the Raptors and Pacers.
