Nets hired Jason Kidd as head coach.

He retired as a player on June 3 and it's shocking that he took less than two weeks to get a coaching gig with a team that made the playoffs. Kidd must have had a terrific interview with the Nets to get the nod over impressive candidates such as Brian Shaw. Kidd played seven seasons with the Nets, averaging between 8.3 and 10.4 assists per game in that span. He'll likely be accompanied by top-notch assistants and if his career is any indicator, the Nets should be a more offensive-oriented team after ranking 17th in points per game last season.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs.

This isn't a surprise and he hasn't seen game action since Mar. 15. Bynum played in just two games since the Pacers brought him on board and they've obviously swung and missed here. The team hasn't been getting much out of their center spot, so Ian Mahinmi could be an X-factor for their success in the postseason.

Duke F Jabari Parker has declared for the NBA Draft.

He did it in impressive fashion, too, posting a column and video through Sports Illustrated with the news. He's got the potential to be the No. 1 pick in the draft and is one of just a few college players these days who is already a household name. And all that talk about him returning to school next year? Much ado about nothing.

Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points along with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

You could see him having a big game with the Warriors resting the regulars, but this was better than any of us could have imagined. Harrison Barnes chipped in with 30, while Randy Foye scored 32 and had 11 assists for the Nuggets in the loss. The Warriors are healthy, with the exception of Andrew Bogut, and ready to take on the Clippers in Round 1 of the playoffs. And that, our friends, is a wrap on the 2013-14 regular season.

Archie Goodwin busted out for a career-high 29 points vs. the Kings on Wednesday, adding four boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer on 11-of-13 from the field in 31 minutes.

He made a huge splash in Las Vegas Summer League, but he was extremely quiet until tonight. If not for Gerald Green making a strong case for Most Improved Player, we might have seen more of Goodwin. He's a plus defender and showed tonight that he can really get to the rim. His jumper needs work and he's unlikely to be a target in fantasy drafts next season.

Ben McLemore ended his season with a bang on Wednesday during a 104-99 loss to the Suns, scoring a career-high 31 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He scored 19 points on Sunday and figured out how to get his own shot to close the season. McLemore's off-the-ball game needed some work throughout the year and his isolation game was non-existent for much of the season, but he showed some promise. Still, the sample size is too small to make him a target in drafts next season.

Amir Johnson looked to suffer an ankle injury against the Knicks on Wednesday.

There has been no word from the team just yet, but he did play only 15 minutes after he seemed a bit hobbled. Johnson scored just two points with four boards, one assist and two turnovers in a loss. He'll need the two days off as the Raptors head into the playoffs. They'll face the Nets this weekend and if he's out, Patrick Patterson will take over at PF.
Apr 17 - 12:20 AM

Dwyane Wade hit 6-of-14 shots for 16 points, two rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

His owners probably couldn't care less that he showed up for the final two games of the season, as he was simply a headache to own all year. And if you owned Wade this season, chances are you won't be touching him next year. And we're right there with you. Toney Douglas and Ray Allen were the only other Heat players to score in double figures, as LeBron James, Chris Bosh and some others took the night off to rest. The Heat will play the Bobcats in Round 1, and will have to find an answer for Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson if they're going to breeze into Round 2.
Apr 17 - 12:01 AM

Trey Burke scored a career-high 32 points against the Wolves during a 136-130 win on Wednesday, adding seven boards, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 10-of-21 from the field.

He was the favorite to win Rookie of the Year out of the gate, but failing to score consistently really hurt his production. Burke needs to get more confidence around the rim and stop settling for jumpers. If he can do that and maybe work on his defense, he could be a starter for a while despite being just 6'1".
Apr 16 - 11:57 PM

Russell Westbrook hit just 5-of-15 shots but still finished with 22 points, six rebounds, eight assists and six steals as the Thunder pulled off a big one-point win over Detroit on Wednesday.

They locked up the No. 2 seed and will face the winner of the Memphis-Dallas game, which is currently in overtime. Westbrook's minutes restrictions have been lifted and he's been cleared to play as many minutes as Scott Brooks sees fit in the postseason.
Apr 16 - 10:45 PM

Kevin Durant hit 14-of-30 shots and a 3-pointer for 42 points, four rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer as the Thunder pulled out a late win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

The Thunder trailed for much of the fourth quarter but Durant had a big dunk inside of 20 seconds to give OKC the lead. Serge Ibaka had 10 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks, while Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson also played well in the tough win. The Thunder locked up the No. 2 seed and will play the winner of the Dallas-Memphis overtime game in Round 1 of the playoffs.
Apr 16 - 10:43 PM

Michael Beasley sprained his right ankle and will not return to Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

It's too bad because he was getting some run tonight, finishing with eight points, one board, two blocks and one turnover. Beasley's minutes figure to drop back down in the playoffs, but the team got a heck of a lot more than they bargained for from him this season.
