Will Bynum was busy on Thursday night, playing 47 minutes while scoring a team-high 28 points with four boards, six assists and one 3-pointer against the Heat.

The Pistons were without Rodney Stuckey, Brandon Jennings and Chauncey Billups, so Bynum almost picked up the slack by himself. With Rodney Stuckey out indefinitely, Bynum could get more than 24 minutes per game off the bench. He's someone to consider for owners that didn't draft enough assists.

Blazers GM Neil Olshey wouldn't commit to re-signing Wesley Matthews this offseason.

"We know his value to us; we also know he's going to have market value around the league," he said. Matthews is coming off a torn Achilles, and after the Blazers absolutely fell apart without him, his free-agent case looks pretty good despite the injury. He should have no problem getting a variety of multi-year offers, and his future could very well be outside of Portland. If he leaves, the Blazers are going to have a very tough time replacing what he brings to the table. Both the player and the team have now been noncommittal about remaining together.

Danny Green said that he hopes to re-sign with the Spurs this offseason.

Green will be an unrestricted free agent, but San Antonio also has to address Kawhi Leonard's free agency as well as a potential new deal for Tim Duncan and/or Manu Ginobili. Green should get some really solid offers in free agency after averaging 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocks and 2.4 triples (41.8 percent) on 43.6 percent shooting overall.

Bradley Beal's (ankle) status for Game 2 vs. Atlanta is unknown.

Although X-rays were negative, Beal wouldn't commit to being able to play in Game 2. "I'll just treat it over the next couple days and see how I feel," he said. It's worth noting that Beal has a history of leg injuries and missed time in the regular season due to a stress reaction in his right leg, so the ankle injury should be monitored closely. "That's probably the worst I've ever turned it, honestly," Beal added. Otto Porter could slide into the starting five if Beal has to miss time.

With J.R. Smith serving a two-game suspension, Iman Shumpert is expected to start at shooting guard for Monday's Game 1 vs. the Bulls.

"I think I’ll get more opportunities just playing more minutes," Shumpert said. "But as far as going in with a different mindset, it’s not like I’m going to transform into J.R. for the team." The Cavs are very short-handed with Smith out two games and Kevin Love (shoulder) done for the playoffs, so in addition to Shump they'll need more production from Tristan Thompson, James Jones, Matthew Dellavedova and possibly Shawn Marion or Mike Miller.

John Wall injured his left wrist and hand during a hard fall on Sunday, but he told reporters, "I'll be ready on Tuesday."

Early indications are that X-rays were negative but the team has yet to officially update his status. "My wrist will be alright. If it ain't broke I'll play through anything," Wall said. "It's more in my hand now. The pressure went to my hand." He'll have one day to rest before going for a 2-0 series lead vs. the top-seeded Hawks.

Tony Allen drew the ire of Warriors fans by accidentally interrupting a children's dance group during Sunday's Game 1 defeat, which he finished with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and zero turnovers.

Allen was terrific, shooting 6-of-11 from the field in 38 high-energy minutes, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 15-point road loss. Golden State's fans booed Allen for the rest of the game after he meandered onto the court in the middle of the kids' dance routine during a timeout, a moment Draymond Green described as "hilarious." The Grizzlies won't be laughing after the convincing defeat.

Nick Calathes started at PG on Sunday but he failed to score in 21 minutes, going 0-of-4 from the field and 0-of-2 at the FT line with one rebound, two assists, three steals and three turnovers.

Paging Mike Conley. The Warriors also held Beno Udrih to seven points and one assist in 19 minutes off the bench, while their own MVP point guard pitched in a game-high 22 points. It's a wildly lopsided matchup but Calathes, who played well in the first round, will need to have a short memory with Game 2 looming on Tuesday.
May 3 - 7:45 PM

An MRI on Chris Paul's left hamstring was negative and he is a game-time decision for Monday's Game 1 vs. the Rockets.

This is as good a report as Clippers' fans could have expected, though we may not learn CP3's availability until after he goes through pre-game warmups. He was amazing despite playing hurt on Saturday and if he's at all limited the Clips' offense will lean even more on Blake Griffin, with Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers assuming extra ball-handling duties.
May 3 - 7:41 PM

Draymond Green racked up 16 points, four 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes on Sunday, helping Golden State earn a 1-0 series lead.

Green began the game with a barrage of 3-pointers and it took some second-half foul trouble to slow him down. He said after the game that his matchup vs. Zach Randolph and the Grizzlies' frontcourt "wasn't as physical as [he] thought it'd be," and Golden State should cruise in the series if Green can turn the matchup in their favor.
May 3 - 7:36 PM

Zach Randolph posted 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Sunday's loss in Oracle Arena, adding nine rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Z-Bo and Marc Gasol (21 points, nine rebounds) will need to have a huge series for the Grizzlies to hang with the Warriors, especially if Mike Conley (facial surgery) misses more games. Randolph has a size and strength advantage in the post vs. Draymond Green and the Warriors' small lineups, but his difficulty defending the perimeter will be a key to the series -- Green shot 4-of-8 beyond the arc on Sunday.
May 3 - 7:27 PM

Stephen Curry will be named MVP for the 2014-15 season, according to CSN Bay Area.

An official announcement is expected to be made this week, possibly as soon as Monday, and it makes sense for him to receive the award prior to Tuesday's Game 2 vs. the Grizzlies. Curry averaged only 32.7 minutes per game this season, yet he beat out MVP candidates like James Harden and LeBron James by leading his team to a league-best 67-15 record. He averaged 23.8 points, 3.6 triples, 4.3 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 2.0 steals during the regular season, and has somehow been even better in the playoffs. Congrats, Steph.
