Gary Washburn is reporting that the Celtics, according to a source close to the team, "desperately" needs an assistant coach who can relate to Rondo.

Rondo is apparently already having some trust issues now that Doc Rivers is gone, although it's unclear if he's upset by the arrival of Brad Stevens or not. In any case, it does make sense that the C's would be looking for a coach to mentor Rondo, so don't be surprised if they add a former player to the staff specifically for that purpose. Rondo's expected to miss the early part of the season as he recovers from knee surgery, and probably isn't thrilled to be playing with a new lineup in a serious rebuilding situation.

Jonas Valanciunas was dominant vs. the Heat on Tuesday with 24 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 41 minutes.

J-Val was the best player for the Raptors tonight and it wasn't close either. Valanciunas usually only sees around 26 minutes per game, but coach Dwane Casey couldn't take him off the floor tonight and he was also giving Hassan Whiteside some problems down low. Bismack Biyombo was invisible tonight with three rebounds in 11 minutes.

Kyle Lowry scored just seven points on 3-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's 102-96 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 1.

He did hit a halfcourt buzzer beater to send the game to overtime, but other than that Lowry was pretty awful tonight. He didn't have a single point at halftime and finished the game with six assists, four boards, three steals and three turnovers in 43 minutes. Lowry didn't talk to reporters after the game because he immediately went to the practice court to get up some extra shots, so hopefully he will bounce back in Game 2 on Thursday.

Goran Dragic led the Heat to a 102-96 overtime win in Game 1 vs. the Raptors on Tuesday, scoring 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting.

He was coming in hot with 25 points in Game 7 vs. the Pacers on Sunday, so the Raptors are going to have their hands full if Dragic stays this hot. He added six boards, two assists and three 3-pointers with three turnovers in 41 minutes. Game 2 will be in Toronto on Thursday.

Hassan Whiteside (right knee strain) will return to Tuesday's Game 1 vs. the Raptors.

He was only in the locker room for a few moments before quickly returning to the bench. He gave his teammates a thumbs up and appears to be OK, but we'll be sure to have an update after the game. The Heat just dodged a bullet considering how bad the fall looked.
May 3 - 8:29 PM

Norman Powell will move into the starting lineup for Game 1 vs. the Heat on Tuesday, sending Patrick Patterson to the bench.

The Heat utilize a small-ball lineup with Luol Deng at the four, so the Raptors will slide DeMarre Carroll over to power forward. Powell only averaged 18.0 minutes per game in round one vs. the Pacers, but he should see a lot more minutes in this series and he's definitely earned them too. Patterson should still be the first big off the bench.

Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Stephen Curry (knee) could return for Saturday's Game 3 or Monday's Game 4.

"I know everybody wants to know is it going to be Saturday, is it going to be Monday?" said Meyers of Curry's timetable. "It's in that range, but it's hard to say. But those games [3 and 4] are so close together... He's got to play a little bit of 3-on-3 or 5-on-5. He hasn't done any of that stuff yet." Steve Kerr is hopeful that Curry can go through a full scrimmage on Thursday, and if he can get through that scrimmage, it sounds like he has a decent chance of suiting up for Game 3. Stay tuned.
May 3 - 6:24 PM

Hassan Whiteside said that his bruised right thigh is at about 85 percent, but he has no intention of missing any time with the injury.

"It's not 100 percent, but I'm going to keep playing," said Whiteside. The thigh injury didn't appear to limit him much during Sunday's blowout win over the Hornets, and he should be receiving a full compliment of minutes for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Raptors. He's one of the better centers to target in DFS.
May 3 - 2:20 PM

Russell Westbrook scored a team-high 29 points during a 98-97 Game 2 victory over the Spurs on Monday, adding seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

This game had a wild finish with Dion Waiters elbowing Manu Ginobili on an inbound pass. Before that, Westbrook picked up a lot easier buckets with the Thunder scoring 21 points in fast break -- they only had 12 in the 124-92 Game 1 loss. Westbrook didn't have to deal with Kawhi Leonard as much as Game 1, so that was huge for him. Coach Gregg Popovich will probably try to put Kawhi on Westy more in Game 3 on Friday.
May 3 - 12:51 AM

Kevin Durant scored 28 points in 42 minutes against the Spurs during a Game 1 win on Monday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He was much better in this game even though Kawhi Leonard guarded him more in this game than on Saturday. Durant and Westbrook scored 57 of the 98 points and handed out 14 of the 16 assists in this game. This series is off until Friday, so the Thunder will have some confidence after they were blown out in Game 1.
May 3 - 12:44 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge was on fire during a 98-97 loss to the Thunder in Game 2 on Monday, making 15-of-21 from the field for 41 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

He is lighting it up with his jumper and in the post-up game. Aldridge has scored 79 points in the last two games with an absurd 80.9 true shooting percentage. The Spurs have to give him a touch on basically every possession right now, especially with his teammates not clicking. Expect him to have a huge series.
May 3 - 12:34 AM

LeBron James scored 25 points during a 104-93 Game 1 win over the Hawks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, nine assists, five steals, one block, four turnovers and two 3-pointers.

The Cavs lost an 18-point lead, but they finished strong to earn the home win. James picked up his 120th playoff victory in this win, which passed Michael Jordan's 119. He was hit in the face in the fourth quarter and remained down for about 15 seconds, but he didn't miss time after that. The Cavs will look to go 6-0 in the postseason on Wednesday.
