Knicks GM Glen Grunwald foresees the organization having a "long-term, successful partnership" with Carmelo Anthony.

Melo's happiness with the Knicks has been a topic for debate ever since New York was eliminated by Indiana in the playoffs. ESPN.com reported Wednesday that the Lakers plan to make Anthony and LeBron James their primary targets in free agency next summer. Both players have opt-out clauses in their deals and are expected to exercise them. However, it's worth noting the Knicks and Anthony's camp can begin negotiating a long-term extension in February, which render many of these reports moot.

Kobe Bryant (knee) is frustrated with the Lakers according to sources close to Bryant.

Bryant missed an appearance to thank fans due to a migraine and was in Paris while the rest of his team was conducting exit interviews, so Bryant's frustration is becoming more apparent. There is no word on exactly who Kobe's people are, but said people acknowledged the 35-year-old is "frustrated" with the Lakers and the prospect of rebuilding for two more seasons. The bad news for Bryant is that he's committed to the Lakers for two more seasons, but there is a silver lining as the Lakers will have a lottery pick and plenty of cap space to work with this offseason.

Blake Griffin was unstoppable against the Warriors on Monday during Game 2's 138-98 win over the Warriors, making 13-of-17 from the field for 35 points, six boards, one assist and two steals.

He shot 9-of-10 from the line in his highest scoring output of his career. It's also worth mentioning Griffin didn't commit a single foul, which was an issue in Game 1 due to fouling out in 19 minutes. The Clippers were outstanding as a team at the line, making 32-of-35 while also burying 12-of-25 from deep. They'll be carrying some momentum to Golden State in this 1-1 series.

The Thunder lost Game 2 on Monday despite Kevin Durant's game-high 36 points, which included an unbelievable four-point play toward the end of regulation.

The fact that OKC even forced overtime was impressive -- soon after Durant's improbable basket while falling out of bounds, Kendrick Perkins bailed his team out with a putback layup to tie things up as the buzzer expired. A few miscues and tough breaks foiled their comeback attempt in overtime, spoiling big games from Durant and Russell Westbrook (29 points, seven rebounds, eight assists).

Mike Conley scored 19 points and handed out 12 assists with just two turnovers as the Grizzlies stole Game 2 in Oklahoma City on Monday.

This gives Conley 23 assists with three turnovers in the series, which is even more impressive since the Thunder forced 14.5 turnovers per game during the regular season. His two errors were costly ones late in overtime but the Grizzlies still got the victory behind admirable execution and a gutsy team effort on both ends.

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri has been fined $25,000 for making a profane comment prior to Game 1 in Toronto.

Ujiri was addressing fans outside the arena, and in a misguided attempt to fire them up he used the now-infamous phrase "F*** Brooklyn," for which he has since apologized. The league initially wasn't going to fine him but they've since changed their mind, and the punishment seems appropriate given Ujiri's blatant breach of professional standards.

Joakim Noah was named the NBA's 2013-14 Defensive Player of the Year on Monday.

He won easily with 100 of the 125 first-place votes. There are not many players more associated with hustling than Noah and it's led to his team becoming a terrific defense. The Bulls led the NBA in points allowed per game at 91.8 and ranked second in defensive efficiency. Noah's contributions on defense came off the ball quite a bit and was great on his man, allowing an opponent field goal percentage at the rim of just 46.8 percent. He's solidified himself as one of the best big men in fantasy for his across-the-board capabilities. Roy Hibbert finished second and DeAndre Jordan finished third in the DPOY voting.

Chris Paul (hamstring) has been receiving treatment on his strained right hamstring but will play Monday against the Warriors.

Paul almost notched a triple-double in the Clippers' loss to the Warriors on Saturday. He scored 28 points, dished out eight assists, and grabbed seven rebounds, mostly with Blake Griffin on the bench. Despite his sore hamstring, he will need another huge performance in Game 2 if the Clippers want to even the series.

The NBA issued a statement on Monday that a foul called on Dwight Howard with 10.8 seconds left in overtime during Sunday's game vs. the Blazers should have been called on Joel Freeland.

It was a huge call for a few reasons: Howard fouled out because of this mistake, he would have had two shots, and it led to two free throws from Freeland, of which he made one of them. The Blazers won the game 122-120 after the made free throw and James Harden's shot just before the buzzer didn't fall. It's not a foregone conclusion this call altered the game because Dwight is far from a lock to make free throws, but it certainly casts some doubt.

The Utah Jazz have announced on Monday that head coach Tyrone Corbin will not have his contract renewed.

Corbin's tenure was only four short seasons, including his stint as interim coach in the 2010-2011 season. Still the decision was not easy for general manager Dennis Lindsey. "This has not been an easy decision, but ... [we] feel that this is the best decision for our franchise moving forward," Lindsey said. According to Yahoo!, Jim Boylen is a candidate to take over as the head coach, but nothing is imminent. The Jazz have some young pieces and will likely pick high in the draft, but they have their work cut out for themselves to be a playoff contender.

Kobe Bryant (knee) has been cleared to run and shoot, and his workout on Monday signaled the beginning of a six-month training program.

Bryant received encouraging news from doctors in Germany who previously performed platelet-rich plasma treatment on his knees, and he's expected to be ready for the start of next season. He has been blunt about his desire to compete for a championship in 2014-15 and the Lakers' roster and salary cap is wide open, so they'll undoubtedly be one of the most active teams in free agency and the trade market this summer.

Al Jefferson's strained plantar fascia will not get worse if he continues to play, and his availability for Game 2 on Wednesday is a matter of pain tolerance.

Big Al had an MRI and although the test results haven't been announced, the team seems confident that he can play if he feels well enough. He was wearing a walking boot on Monday and will not practice on Tuesday, but he'll warm up during Wednesday's shootaround before deciding his own status. He's played through plenty of injuries this season and we're optimistic that he'll be in uniform, but any dip in his production could be a mortal blow for the Bobcats.
