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.

Donovan Mitchell hit 13-of-28 shots and three 3-pointers for 30 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a block in 37 minutes to lead the Jazz to a 113-96 win over the Thunder in Monday's Game 4, giving the Jazz a 3-1 lead in the series.

Mitchell broke Karl Malone's team playoff scoring record for a rookie with his 33 points tonight, as Malone scored 31 points in a game back in 1986. These two teams hate each other and there were six technical fouls handed out tonight, but Mitchell managed to stay out of most of the drama. He doesn't look like a rookie, and really hasn't all year, and the Jazz will look to put away the Thunder in Oklahoma City in Game 5 on Wednesday. However, a more likely scenario would be the Jazz ending the series in Game 6 back at home. Mitchell is a much needed offensive force on a team that thrives by playing defense, and this series has been the most entertaining matchup of the playoffs thus far.

James Harden hit 12-of-26 shots, five 3-pointers and 7-of-7 free throws on his way to 36 points, four rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block in Monday's 119-100 win over the Wolves in Game 4, giving Houston a 3-1 lead in the series.

The Rockets scored 50 points (and hit nine 3-pointers) in the third quarter, which was the second most points in a quarter of a playoff game of all time, as the 1962 Lakers scored 51 points in a quarter. The Wolves only scored 20 in that one, turning a one-point deficit for Minnesota into a 31-point lead for the Rockets, who never looked back. Harden didn't really look like himself in Games 2 and 3, but was back to his old tricks tonight. The Rockets will look to end this series at home on Wednesday.

Jeff Teague (jammed finger) will return to Game 4 on Monday.

He went back to the locker room for a few minutes, but returned with his right pinky finger taped up. Teague should be good to go the rest of the evening.

Marcus Smart (thumb) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against Milwaukee.

Smart said that the plan was for him to get back to the court for Game 6, so we'd consider him closer to the doubtful tag for Tuesday's game. Either way, he's on the cusp of a return, and once he does get back out there, Shane Larkin could drop from the rotation entirely. Check back for another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround.

Josh Richardson (shoulder) is questionable for Game 5 on Tuesday.

The Heat called his injury a contusion on Sunday, but now they've changed it to a sprain. Richardson previously said that he was planning to play, and he was able to play through the issue in Game 4. If Richardson can't play, that would be a huge blow to Miami as he's one of their only hopes to contain Ben Simmons.

Domantas Sabonis was terrific in the Pacers' tough Game 4 loss, hitting 9-of-12 shots for a team-high 19 points, six rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Sabonis was thrust into a bigger role with Myles Turner in foul trouble, and he rose to the occasion with strong play at both ends in 25 minutes of action. Victor Oladipo is cruising toward Most Improved Player honors, but let's not forget the leap made by the other guy Indiana acquired in the Paul George trade -- Sabonis improved in every facet of the game this season and gives Indy a safety net on nights like this when Myles Turner is limited.

Victor Oladipo shot just 5-of-20 from the field for 17 points on Sunday, adding six rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and two blocks in the Pacers' 104-100 defeat.

The Cavs didn't give Oladipo much breathing room offensively, and even when he did get clean looks they just weren't falling. One of his few makes was a lucky bank-shot on a 3-pointer, but on the plus side he sank 4-of-5 free throws with a relatively modest three turnovers -- he came in averaging 5.0 per game in the first round. Indiana ceded homecourt advantage with the loss, but fans of entertaining NBA games aren't complaining.
Apr 22 - 11:49 PM

Kevin Love picked up his second foul just 90 seconds into Sunday's game, which he finished with five points on 2-of-10 shooting, 11 rebounds, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

Love is playing with a partially torn ligament in his left thumb. It hasn't cost him any time but he's struggled to make a consistent impact in the series. After attempting zero shots in the third quarter of Game 3, Love vowed to "find different ways to try and get the ball ... I need to go get it and just need to be more ... vocal in calling for it." His overall attempts dipped tonight but that was mostly due to the foul trouble, and the Cavs will continue to brainstorm ways to keep him engaged offensively.

LeBron James powered the Cavs to a Game 4 road win on Sunday, scoring 32 points (12-of-22 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs) with 13 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and just one turnover in 46 minutes.

The series is knotted up at 2-2 with Game 5 coming in Cleveland on Wednesday. LeBron barely left the court tonight and every game he plays brings a deluge of amazing statistics that put his career into historical perspective. Tonight it was LBJ passing Hakeem Olajuwon for the 8th most double-doubles in NBA playoff history (101), while padding his lead for the most games leading a playoff team in points, rebounds and assists. He leads everyone in postseason DFS scoring this year, too, edging out Anthony Davis, and is basically a must-play regardless of cost.

John Wall powered the Wizards to a series-tying Game 4 victory on Sunday, scoring 27 points with 14 assists, six rebounds and three steals in 44 minutes.

Tonight's line adds up to 60.2 fantasy points for Wall, according to the NBA's official scoring, which is just above his average of 58.9 per game in the postseason. That's third-best behind only LeBron James and Anthony Davis. He made 10-of-24 field goals and 7-of-10 free throws, and came up huge after Bradley Beal fouled out late in the fourth quarter of a tied game. It's safe to say Wall's surgically-repaired left knee isn't holding him back.
Apr 22 - 9:15 PM

Bradley Beal fouled out in the fourth quarter of Game 4, finishing with 31 points, five rebounds, five 3-pointers and two assists in 32 minutes.

It's the first time all season that Beal has fouled out of a game. The sixth foul was questionable and Beal was fuming afterward, but he managed to avoid a technical or the risk of further punishment from the league. He was cruising offensively with 10-of-19 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws, and the Wizards didn't hang their heads when he left -- instead, they looked fired up as they closed the game on a 14-6 run. Beal said he wants 20 shot attempts per game and we expect him to come out firing in Toronto on Wednesday.
