The Pacers have agreed to a one-year deal with G Rodney Stuckey.

Stuckey will replace Lance Stephenson (and probably Evan Turner), who will sign a three-year deal with the Hornets. While Stuckey is no Stephenson, he is a solid NBA player and a better option than C.J. Miles, and will probably have some decent, late-round fantasy value as a starting two guard in Indy.

Mike Conley (facial surgery) was bothered by the loud noise and bright lights at Oracle Arena during Sunday's game.

"You get a lot of headaches," said Conley, who shot around before the game but did not play. "You get a lot of pressure in that eye. It's tough to hear loud noises and horns. Lights hurt. It's sensitive to a lot." His return date remains uncertain and there's a good chance that Nick Calathes will start again on Tuesday, though Conley is considered questionable for Game 2.

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.

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.

Harrison Barnes did not miss a single shot during Sunday's Game 1 victory over Memphis, scoring 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting (2-of-2 from the stripe), to go with three rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one block over 25 minutes.

Barnes is the Warriors' X-factor, and he finished Sunday's win with a plus/minus rating of plus-18. He does a little bit of everything for Golden State, and through the first five games of the playoffs he's compiled averages of 9.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.8 three-pointers, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks per game. Those numbers, however, aren't really cutting it for ownership in standard leagues.
May 3 - 6:51 PM

Paul Millsap flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's Game 1 loss, scoring 15 points on 6-of-17 shooting, to go with 12 rebounds, eight assists, one three-pointer, two steals, two blocks and four turnovers over 39 minutes of action.

Washington is one of the best teams in the league at defending the power forward position, so Millsap could be in for a rough second-round series. He's still going to play heavy minutes, as a crucial part of what Atlanta does, but when 64.7 percent of your shot attempts come with a defender within 0-4 feet of you, it's going to be difficult to shoot a high percentage. The Hawks will need a better all-around effort if they hope to even the series up during Tuesday's Game 2 in Atlanta.
