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.

Chris Paul hit 9-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, a block and five turnovers in Tuesday's 99-91 Game 2 win against the Jazz.

As well as CP3, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin all played, it's interesting that the Clippers didn't win by more points. It's also interesting that this series is tied 1-1 and heading to Utah for the next two games, starting on Friday night. Paul was great tonight, despite the TOs, and we get the feeling he's simply going to will the Clippers to win this series. But if that's going to happen the Clippers will likely need to take either Game 3 or 4 in Utah. Paul is now tied with LeBron James for the second most playoff games with at least 20 points, 10 dimes and three steals with 10 of them.

Rajon Rondo has revenge against his former team on his mind and torched the Celtics in Boston for 11 points, nine rebounds and 14 assists on Tuesday, just missing a triple-double and giving the No. 8 seed Bulls an unprecedented 2-0 lead over the No. 1 Celtics in an easy 111-97 win.

Games 3 and 4 are in Chicago and it's hard to see the Celtics winning four of five games to pull this thing out. The only time a No. 8 seed has gone up 2-0 in a series was in a five-game set between the No. 1 Suns and No. 8 Lakers in 1993, when the Suns came back and won three straight to win the series 3-2. Rondo tied the franchise playoff record with 14 assists and just missed joining Scottie Pippen as the only Bull to triple-double in the playoffs. There was a time this season when Rondo wasn't even part of the rotation, but those days are long gone. The Bulls look like a team capable of winning the East (they get the Wizards-Hawks winner if they finish off Boston) and we'll just leave this here: the Bulls were 4-0 vs. the Cavaliers this season.

Isaiah Thomas' 20 points weren't enough as the Celtics fell to 0-2 in the first round of the playoffs to Chicago.

This game wasn't exactly close either, as the Bulls won by 14 points. With the series shifting to Chicago for Game 3 and Game 4, the Celtics have a mountain to climb to avoid an early exit. As for Thomas, he will fly to Seattle on Wednesday to attend to his younger sister's funeral, but he's expected to be back in time for Game 3 on Friday. He finished 6-of-15 from the field and 7-of-13 from the line, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple.

Kyle Lowry hit 6-of-12 shots, two 3-pointers and 8-of-9 free throws for 22 points, four rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in Tuesday's 106-100 win over the Bucks, and also hit the shot of the game to tie the series at 1-1.

Lowry's step back, fadeaway jumper over Malcolm Brogdon with 8.9 seconds left on the clock gave the Raptors a four-point lead and essentially won the game for his team. Lowry and DeMar DeRozan were a bit quiet in the fourth quarter, but Lowry brought the arena alive and kept this series from getting out of hand with two games in Milwaukee on the horizon. Lowry had just four points on 2-of-11 shooting in Game 1, so while his Game 2 numbers might seem a little disappointing based on his regular-season stats, it was a whole lot better than what he did on Saturday. Game 3 is Thursday in Milwaukee, when the Raptors will look to re-take home-court advantage.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points with 15 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one triple in Tuesday's 106-100 Game 2 loss to Toronto.

This was actually an off night for Giannis as he hit 9-of-24 shots and 5-of-7 free throws with four turnovers. The Raptors said their No. 1 priority was to slow down the Greek Freak, but it's clear that he's going to get eat no matter what and the Bucks even had a chance to steal this game -- they missed their final five shots of the contest. With the series tied up 1-1, the Bucks should be feeling good and the next two games will be in Milwaukee on Thursday and Saturday. Khris Middleton added 20 points, five boards, two assists, one steal and three triples for the Bucks.
Apr 18 - 9:52 PM

Tyler Zeller will start the second half of Game 2 vs. the Bulls for Amir Johnson.

The Celtics were getting destroyed on the glass just like in Game 1, so the move makes sense. After playing just three minutes in Game 1, Zeller could have a larger role in this series in an attempt to keep Robin Lopez off the offensive glass.
Apr 18 - 9:30 PM

Serge Ibaka (ankle) is good to go for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Bucks.

Ibaka didn't appear limited at all while going through his pregame routine, so he shouldn't have any sort of restrictions tonight as the Raptors look to even up the series before heading to Milwaukee. Joining Ibaka in the starting five for Game 2 will be Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll and Jonas Valanciunas.
Apr 18 - 6:27 PM

Isaiah Thomas (personal) will play in Game 2 on Tuesday.

Thomas will fly to Seattle on Wednesday to attend to his younger sister's funeral, and then the plan is for him to rejoin the team in Chicago for Friday's Game 3. The Celtics' lost Game 1 despite getting 33 points and a full line from Thomas, so some of the role players will need to step it up tonight for Boston to avoid falling into a 0-2 hole.
Apr 18 - 6:20 PM

C.J. McCollum (right ankle sprain) is being listed as probable for Game 2 against the Warriors on Wednesday.

It's unclear exactly when McCollum tweaked his ankle, but it didn't appear to be an issue at all during his 41-point explosion in Portland's Game 1 loss, and him being listed as probable further suggests that it will be a non-issue moving forward. Check back for official confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Apr 18 - 4:03 PM

Kevin Durant (left calf strain) did not practice on Tuesday and is being listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

The Dubs said that Durant dealt with some cramping in his left leg during their Game 1 win on Sunday, but apparently it was a bit more serious than that. There is some concern here with Durant sitting out practice, and if there's a chance of this turning into a lingering issue, Golden State may opt to play it safe. We'll have a better idea on his status for Game 2 based on what he's able to do during Wednesday morning's shootaround. Stay tuned.
Apr 18 - 3:32 PM

Jusuf Nurkic (leg) said he's still not ready and he will miss Wednesday's Game 2 vs. Golden State.

There remains hope that Nurkic will be able to return at some point during Portland's first-round series, but given the way the Dubs won in Game 1, he might not have a ton of time to get out there. The Trail Blazers will continue to man the five-spot by committee in Nurkic's absence, with Noah Vonleh, Meyers Leonard, Al-Farouq Aminu and Moe Harkless all spending some time at center.
